Next step is contacting the DMV and finding out what I need to transfer my license and registration to New York State. Because then I can greatly reduce my in-surance.
I had a fun conversation with a girl at the rental agency today who referred to New Jersey as "down south." Then again, she spent 6 years growing up in Alaska. It's all relative. Regardless, I can't wait to be an Ithacan. And in half the time it took Odysseus.
