Most Drive-Away drivers we talk to stay as far away from the northeastern US. Traffic and rude people are the major complaint of these drivers.
Traffic? Tons of it for sure.
Heavily travelled bridges have upper and lower decks each layer goes in the opposite direction.
Statistically speaking, from Ohio to the eastern seaboard and from New Hampshire south to Virginia 1/3 of the US population lives in this small section. There are more people living in the states of Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut than in all of California.
People live, mostly, in “Row” houses.
There are houses on lots that a premium is paid to live “detached”. However the space between each house is maybe wide enough for two people to walk shoulder to shoulder through.
Out in the rural areas housing is like all other areas, roomy and quiet. Most people reside in the densely populated urban areas for work and entertainment.
The people in the northeast are not any more rude than the rest of the US. The pace is faster because of all the people, hence they talk louder and faster than others do and they gesticulate frequently (talk with their hands and arms). Now when confronted with rudeness or by pushy and demanding outsiders they can, and will, ramp up their talking style and put the fear in you. People up here don’t suffer fools well. Can’t say that I blame them either.
Only in the northeast are these little restaurants. An ice cream shop really.
Friendly’s is the name. Joe gets to enjoy real New England Clam Chowder at this chain.
Seems he has to cook it more with the hot black pepper. Want a little soup with that pepper?
I enjoy the shake made at Friendly’s using orange sherbet. Yum.
We may be spending a day extra up here, but Joe could change my mind at any second. He wants to go to Dover, Maine and see the people that make our cell phone headsets to get a faulty one exchanged since we are up this way.
Everyone have a good weekend.
