Reminds me that when you’re stuck in traffic in one of the tunnels under the harbor you get plenty of time to ponder the water dripping from some of the ceiling tiles…

Or wonder about the guys sitting in those little booths about mid way all day long.. or how come the AM radio didn’t work… or where did the doors in the walls lead to.. 

which were all just things to mull over while trying not to ponder that dripping water….

Hi All

RE: Boston area travel tips

As someone that has lived in downtown Boston and surrounding suburbia since 1985. Here are some travel tips:

1. Peak traffic. Starts 3pm-7pm

2. Avoid Fri. Sat, Sun. 

3. What's new? Thu is the new Fri. Often worse Thu 3pm-7pm May-Sep

4. Tech. Use GPS to plot alternate routes. Example Rt 495

5. Example: Take Rt 95 around the city instead Rt 93 thru the city

6. Solution: Travel off peak and you will increase your probability of free passage

7. Tech. Get a free EZ Pass transponder if you are a regular

8. Beaches=density. That's Cranes in Ipswich going north Rt 95 and Duxbury on Rt 3 going south

9. Rain=Add an hour

10. Caveat Emptor: Despite what the bumper stickers say..."There is no Cape Cod Tunnel". Add: 2 hours May-Sep during Fri, Sat, Sun.

11.Local Tip: go off peak 5-6am and 8-9pm and you may sail thru. That's what we do.

12. Consider: White Lake in Tamworth NH. Burlingame in Charlestown RI

Ping me if I can help in any way

I still remember my dad shaking me awake at something like 4am and hustling us all into the car for the oh dark thirty drive from Framingham to the Cape when we would go camp out there some summers. “ The early bird catches the worm “ he’d say. The traffic at the bridges was awful even way back in the sixties I guess

Hey Rleog (Bob)!  That was us!  It was great to see a fellow Oliver owner and, as mentioned above, you were brave to be towing your Oliver on the SE Expressway.  I drive that route a lot between Maine and MA and I hate it with nothing in tow!

Sorry that I'm responding 7 months late.  My wife just saw your post from surfing the forum and she screamed "That guy sent us a message!".  She actually startled me she was so excited. 

I will PM you too but thanks a lot for saying hello.  And despite the fact that I've traveled on the SE Expressway thousands of times, I will NEVER do it with my trailer!  You're way braver than me.

I started to feel a little queasy just reading this.  (Former NE gal, here...)

I'm afraid the term "massholes" is sort of well deserved when it comes to how many people drive.

Most drivers believe that using your turn signal is akin to giving information to the enemy  🙂
