Mysterium Travel Woes – Driving Trip

Well, I’m having a slight problem, as mentioned on UO. The hotel is not actually in Boston directly, but Burlington (which is a suburb outside the normal local subway, aka the T). It is slightly available via a bus (350/351) which could be possible but that only takes me to Burlington Mall and from there I need to find a way to cross Rt 93.

I am now considering a suggestion from my father – drive from NJ. At first that sounded a but nuts to me, since I’m not certain how much sleep I’m going to get prior to the drive (my flight lands home at 11 PM on Thursday!). But I suppose if I get some extra sleep Thu morning and a quick nap before the drive, I may be able to depart around 5 AM and be there in time for Friday Reg. I’m staying until ‘Monday’ anyway, so I can leave around 00:30 (during my ‘normal’ work hours) for a nice drive home.

As a side note, the only reason I’m actually considering this is the fact that I have Nav in my car. That allows me to punch in the destination and go without worries…

Anyway, I’m effectively setting this as the plan now, so anyone interested in how a Prius works can take a look over the weekend. :)

  1. Hey!

    A local yokel from the Myst community here — saw you through MystBlogs. I clicked through to your UO post and noticed you didn’t mention the Mass. Bay Commuter Rail that goes from North Station to ARTC (via the Lowell Line). Just wanted to make sure you knew about it. If it works out with your schedule, you can get in at Back Bay, take the Orange Line directly to North Station, then take the Lowell commuter rail line to Anderson RTC. The hotel has a shuttle from the ARTC that you can either book ahead of time or call once you get there.

    I’ve been commuting all summer, so North Station is pretty much my second home at this point. Let me know if you have any questions.
