I finally arrive in New Paltz at 6:30 PM. That means I’very been on the road for 14 hours. If 101 miles in 14 hours is pathetically slow, two things hurt my time. I had only slept for an hour the night before. I had no clue how to get there so I had to stop at any place that had wireless to check Google Maps.
New Paltz was founded by French Protestants. I have no idea what significance that has.
New Paltz is a hipster island in a vast sea of Trump. Hillary will be the next President. Trump will win the Central Hudson Valley (note: perhaps I should have realized that with as many Trump/Pence signs as I noticed just south of New Paltz, Trump would probably win in November. 1/28/2017)
