Well, day 1 did not quite contain the comedy found in the 1987 classic starring Steve Martin and John Candy, but I did travel by plane, train, and automobile all in one trip. So, the journey started with a guy named Joe. Joe was my Empire driver who kindly drove me to the airport. He was a gem of a guy, who enjoyed small talk...couldn't have asked for a better fit.

I had to take a ‘test ride’ before I finally convinced Mrs H to partake in Dr. Seuss at its classic best!
