As mentioned yesterday, a bit of travel was in the cards for early December, and in the midst of preparing to pick up and split for the better part of a week, I decided to get in one last “short walk.”

This one never left Astoria.

As mentioned – short walk. Turn around point was at 31st street and Astoria Blvd.

Checked another gas station off my list at 44th street.
