I caught him briefly on the tube while on a special Boopy Family Thanksgiving trip to Ohio; an 8 hour drive, overnight stay, Thanksgiving dinner (including a 'traditional' green bean casserole!), then 8 hours back to New York City. Thinking about it, we spent the same amount of time on the road as we did in Ohio, including sleeping.
It was worth it though, I learned a lot (going on the trip, not watching the parade). Such as, in New Jersey, you can't pump your own gas at any one of the hundreds of "full-service-only gas stations" and gas attendants don't work on Thanksgiving. Luckily, we found an open gas station before it was too late and didn't need to find out if New Jersey's highway patrol worked on Thanksgiving.
