I’m constantly on the road, traveling to auto shows, press events, vehicle launches, and more. It’s not the easiest thing in the world, especially as I have to leave my pup behind. But while I get to travel to places I’ve never been and drive cars most people would love to get their hands on, a part of me wishes for more stability.
This past week I had the opportunity to travel to New York City for the 2014 New York International Auto Show where I was supposed to drive the Camaro Z/28 on the track at the Monticello Motor Club, along with Chevy’s latest entry into the compact SUV segment. However, because of inclement weather, I was only able to hitch a ride in the passenger seat. But I’m not complaining. It was a lot of fun.
But there was more to my trip than just cool cars and debuts, I was able to visit with my best friend from college, someone who I haven’t seen since we graduated. It was so nice catching up, and I know it couldn’t have been possible without this trip. Added to that, I was able to see a friend who is like my little sister. Ford hosted an event on the observatory deck of the Empire State Building, which she was able to attend. Within one day, I was able to see two important people in my life thanks to my job.
Whenever I travel, I like to try and visit friends and family, and while it’s worked out a few times, this was one of the best trips I’ve had in a long while. Life as an automotive journalist is pretty awesome 🙂
