How stupid is it to drive through New York on a Sunday? I'll be coming up from Tennessee. I was planning on driving way the hell out of the way, but thought I'd ask.


I'm boatless.

Unless you're already on 95 I would always go Tapenzee instead of George Washington Bridge.
After that on a Sunday it shouldn't be too bad.
From TN you should be on 78 so in NJ split onto 287N and that'll take you over the Tapenzee. It's 8 miles further than the GW much nicer drive

Why is a worldly man like you in TN?

Thank Todd.

My wife worked for MTV in Nashville for quite a while and one of her favorite co-workers is celebrating 25 years there, so there's a big party, and I'm driving an extra 400 miles

Got any ideas on driving from JFK airport up to Newport? We should be coming into JFK about 2pm on Saturday, rental car and on the road by 3pm, I hope. 4-5 hours to Newport? Which bridge? T'n'z or GW? Thanks.

Nice, thanks Terry.

Oh, and you can use my 777 (for a fee; unlimited beer!) as Andi and I will be sailing under the Swiss flag!

Karl, I found you some music to listen to on your way into Nashville!

Another good long distance driving song:

I don't listen to much music on road trips. Currently watching one of the Harry Potter movies though.

Watching movies while driving? Doing that while riding shotgun I hope and not while behind the wheel.

Now that texting and driving is illegal in many areas, there is nothing much to do but watch movies while driving.

If you can't multi task in good conditions, you shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel. Plus, there is literally nothing to hit.

You've said some wacky things Karl but that has to be one of the most arrogant things I read from you. If youíre just pulling our chains then good one if youíre not hopefully itís only you that is hurt or killed when your attitude catches up to you.

Verizon coverage hasn't been an issue, even on the water...

Scores should start going up more regularly tomorrow, or at least some "live" updates.
