Highlights of the day....
- I found a Hermes sheep tie, Hans found a NWT Skeet Blanket a few seconds later. We traded straight up.
- We listened as disgruntled S.A. employees repeatedly reprimanded parents, over the P.A. system for letting their children run amok in the store. It was pretty hilarious.
- We went to Chic-fil-a and got Hans the large quantities of Chic-fil-a sauce.
- I actually finished this sentence as it came out of Hans' mouth. "I was hoping I would get to witness you finding some..." Me interrupting "Hey look I found some Shell Cordovans"
Had an awesome time, glad you could make it Hans!
A quick recap of my time since arriving. I arrived on Sunday but was stuck in Canada for longer than planned due to a missed connection. I arrive late in NYC only to find that none my bank cards worked. Utilizing the one working credit card, I have been on the phone with banks, help lines, and my wife all in Austria, I still have no answers. I was finally able to get some money sent from Austria here. I picked up my car in Jersey with the intent of enjoying the afternoon at outlets north of NYC. The rental place, however, was out of GPS units. Great, I'll wing it. After driving through NYC with little clue as to where exactly I was going, I arrived at the outlets...ten minutes before they closed. Found a hotel and called it quits.
Then I had the pleasure of meeting up with Wes. He's a great guy and was kind enough to spend the day showing me some of his spots. He's far more efficient going through the stores and had a car filled. He covered the highlights well and I'm thrilled with the tie I got in the swap. You're always welcome in Austria!
Oh, to be fair, I do hold an Austrian passport, I just happen to hold an American one as well

Oh well. To paraphrase Leeroy Jenkins, "At least you have Chik-Fil-A!"
Too bad you couldn't make it, we'll plan another one sometime!
