I'M HERE! Standing out like a sore thumb with my electric blue Samantha Brown luggage, and immediately  someone tried to hustle me at the NYC and New Jersey Port Authority bus terminal. But I wasn't having it as I had already acquired some new travel savy and didn't have any change to spare. My adventure began at the Atlantic City Airport (ACY) where there were are no buses or trains available; only $10 jitneys to the casinos. All I required was transportation to my hotel. I don't participate in playing slot machines or cards. This adventure was gamble enough. The only other vehicle available was a $27 per person limo taxi for a 7 mile trip to my lodging. My first mission was to find a cheaper way to get to NYC. And I feel like I've been over hill and dell in doing so. I learned how to get on the NJ Transit City bus 454 which cost $2.50, but had me lugging my beautiful suitcases down a busy, no sidewalk, highway to the stop in front of a gas station, and then up the stairs to my seat on the bus. I later learned from the other passengers, the bus driver should have opened the luggage compartment for me, as he did for women with strollers and others with bicycles. I caught the bus in Absecon, NJ and rode it into Atlantic City to the main bus terminal. There, I finally boarded a Greyhound to NYC via a $22 online ticket purchase. Traffic was moderately good, despite a couple of accidents, and arrival was before the designated time.
So, NO, I don't have any money for a hustler to carry my bags or show me directons to the NJ Transit ticket booth, up the stairs, around the corner, and down the hall! My hotel for the MBFW 2013 adventure was located in Rochelle Park, NJ.,.....
