Ithica, N.Y.

Recommended Posts

We'll be heading out to Ithica, N.Y. tomorrow for the Science Olympiad tournament.  We decided to drive instead of fly, which I'm kind of regretting now the day before we leave.

That is going to be one shitty drive.

Good news is,  you're driving right past my house.  Welcome to stop by!

It will be a long drive, but I kinda dig road trips.  We're going to take our time and not be in a rush. 

Still in Cleveland?

It was a long drive, I kinda regret not flying.  On the way there we made it to Tulsa the first night (I liked it there) and slept east of Indianapolis the second night.  Then the following day we drove to Buffalo and spent the day there.  Visited Niagra Falls, which was awesome. 

The competition went well, some of the schools take it really seriously.  Grant from Myth Busters was the keynote speaker during the opening ceremony, and he talked about himself for about half an hour. 

On the way home we made it outside of St. Louis the first night and home really late the following night.  I'll post pics soon

I take it he wasn't the best. Or is that a good thing?

I've promised you guys I'd post the pictures from the trip and keep forgetting.  It's a year and a half late, but here they are.  The team made nationals again last year that were going to be in Raleigh, N.C. but you-know-what happened and it was cancelled.  Here's the pictures from our trip to Ithica, N.Y. (Cornell University)

Hahaha, yeah there were some smart kiddos.  Our group managed a couple of gold medals but the teams were tough and take it really seriously.  We were looking forward to going to Raleigh but COVID had other ideas.
