    well for a band trip we went to DC/NYC... we played a parade in DC which i have already beeen there b4

    but after that we went to NY which was AWESOME.... im not a city person but its cool to see stuff like this... and at night its even cooler.... we went to the rockefeller center up to the VERY top of it lol it was cool cuz the rain was flying up wards lol and it was VERY VERY VERY windy up there

    we also went to times square which was my favorite.... just seeing all the ads and stuff

    but it was like a WHOLE different world there...

    heck i even lost 3 lbs from all the walking lol

    just figured id share this

    Hey Jeff, glad you had fun in NYC. I was there in 1986, I believe it was. I thought it was pretty cool at the time also :big_smile:. Never been to Washington myself though, so I hope you appreciate getting to go there twice :smile2:. Thanks for sharing buddy!

    It's great that you got to visit NYC. I enjoy reading the online versions of some of their newspapers (NY Times, NY Post, NY Daily News, Newsday) and its like another world compared to what I am used to in St Louis. I cannot imagine a place where one bedroom apartments go for a million dollars.

    The most fun thing about NYC is that you can be on any block in Manhattan, and see something you recognize!!! Even if you've never been to the city before.....

    Sounds awesome, Jeff! Your school band must be a pretty good one to get to travel like that. Ours does a trip like that every other year, so my daughter hopes to go on next year's trip to Orlando. Band kids rule! :lol:
    Glad you're home safe and thanks for the report :cool2:
