I’m on a train heading to New York City for a whirlwind 16-hour business trip. I’ve got one backpack stuffed with expensive camera gear and another, smaller backpack with clean professional clothes to change into. After boarding the train, I found out the reservation for the single room I was booked into was screwed up, and now I will be in a bunk bed, sharing the room with a fellow employee.
I’ll get in at midnight, be at the hotel at 12:30 and up at 6:45 to get uptown by 8:30 to scout out the venue. The event goes from 9:30-1 and I’ll be on my feet the whole time shooting. From there I can stop and get some lunch, and then get back to Penn Station for my train home at 4:35. Hopefully I can sleep on the train.
