Yorkville Road Trip 1978

You're upstate New York in 1978 and you missed your exit on the Thruway so you made a U turn where you weren't supposed to because you didn't want to drive 22 extra miles to the next exit. You're with ten close friends (2 cars). Reaching Worchester, you buy enough Genesee Cream Ale & ice to make more trips to the store unnecessary over the long July 4th weekend. Well in to it, your friend Eddie runs out of cigarettes. Even he knows he shouldn't drive, and no one will drive him to the store 3 miles away. What does he do? He smokes four packs of firecrackers.

If you enjoy my work, check out my memoir, "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood." It's available at Logos Bookstore, 1575 York Avenue, or buy it online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or other booksellers. If you do read it, please leave a few honest words about the book on Amazon and B&N. Thank you.
