Nice ride. I miss living in Boston and the surrounding areas. Nice city. Only place I'd move back to in the US.

Yes, I'm sure the OP has lived in the high plains of Nevada, the piney woods of Georgia, the shores of the Great Lakes, the rolling prairies of Minnesota, the Great Smoky Mountains, the Carolina Shoals, and they all sucked.....
