Day zero summary: wake up in Windsor, CT. Celebratory lunch with Deirdre in Simsbury, CT. Work till 3 PM in Bloomfield CT, drive back to Boston.
Around 15:50 stop on 84 rest area to perform some update SQL(s) for Ashutosh and Richard.
Celebratory dinner with Lira at Bertucci’s. Lira picked up the check on that occasion ($55- coupon + tips = $55)
I brought an excessively sweet coffee cake with me from Connecticut, and Lira though she might partake while I am gone, but at the end she didn’t. I would finish it one slice at a time over next couple of weeks.
Weather forecast promised a warm and dry conditions – warm during the day and not too cold at night.
Packing the backpack is down to science this time. Everything knows its place, and I only need to refill fuel, meals, trail mix, sugar, matches, recharge camera and batteries, bike lights.
