The Trip To Massachusetts To Get My Prize Part 3

I began my temporary journey in Massachusetts as soon as the bus left the area. I had no time to waste. I needed to be at the resort in less than an hour.

The first thing that caught my attention was that the location of the bus stop was on top of a hill. That meant I had to walk back down the hill and make a turn to the open road area. I knew instantly that this was going to be a difficult travel.

First off, I was wearing slim fit black pants and the second thing is that it's scorching hot outside. As I kept walking down the hill, I can feel my pants taking in all of the heat from the sun's rays. So for every single step, I can feel my boxers engulfing my body below the belt with a tsunami of heat and sweat.

I finally made it down the hill and began my way down the road. I've lived 20 and a half years of my life in the South, but I have never seen a open field the way I saw it in Lee, Massachusetts. There were open fields full of mountains, grass, and only a few houses. Some were even abandoned and easy to walk towards if you were risky. The area was so quiet, you can only hear the birds chirping from a distance. Only two or three cars would by pass me every five minutes.

After living in New York City for two years, this was my first time in a long time walking across a field like this. In a way, it felt like returning to familiar lands, even though it wasn't New Orleans.

In the beginning, I was scared to your skin that I wasn't going to be able to find the resort. So I felt extremely grateful that I am living in a generation where my cell phone has it's own GPS system. That way, I could never get lost.

After an hour and a half of power walking and a slight jogging, I finally made it to the resort. I told the people who I was. They asked me to wait in the lobby and welcomed me to coffee and snacks. Everyone knows I am a heavy coffee drinker and I was hungry after the entire walk. You better believe that I took advantage of the snacks in front of me.

I sat down for thirty minutes and I was eventually called to be one of the representatives from the resort.
