Lessons from Vacation

I spent the last week with family on vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I took away a number of lessons from this, many of which I might share here in the days and weeks ahead.

But let me start with the biggest, coming from a guy in Northern New Jersey who ought to have really known this already: It is unfair to judge a state strictly by the interstate highway that traverses it.

North Carolina is NOT merely J.R.’s outlet on Exit 97 and Ava Gardner’s home town. South Carolina is not merely fireworks and pork products. And Virginia should not be picked on for having a town named Skippers.

Delaware, though, does deserve to be picked on for milking the most dollar per mile out of its interstate highway in tolls. More to come. . .
