On Labor Day, I had drive around in the NewsVroom, a van designed to deliver a hands-on media/news experience for the people of York County.
Have I mentioned I’m the world’s worst driver?
(I had a hard time seeing out the right sideview mirror. I drove a couple miles out of the way to avoid merging in that direction.)
I wish I could regale you with stories of awesomeness. The hoards of people who talked to me. How I provided an awesome educational experience.
But I’m not going to lie.
Not this time.
In fact, I had a hard time finding people to talk to PERIOD on the gloomy holiday, filled with thunderstorms and muggy weather.
I went to the pool for a story on the last dip of the season. I tried to drive to Rita’s. I putzed around the city.
Anywho, the van will be at the York Fair in Memorial Hall this week, and I’ll be there for some shifts. In other words, PLEASE stop by for a little #Boyer101.
Here’s my schedule:
Sept. 7: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Sept. 11: noon to 2 p.m.
Sept. 13: noon to 2 p.m.
Sept. 15: noon to 2 p.m. (This one’s a good one. I’ll be hanging out with coworker Sean Adkins, part-time journalist and fulltime He-Man action figure collector.)
While I’m there, I’ll be looking for you guys to assign me some goofy fair shenanigans.
Yah know, stuff like “video yourself eating five funnel cakes” or “interview the deranged bathroom attendant” and the like.
I’ll post some of the ideas on here, pick a few of the best ones and attempt to execute.
Oh yeah, and here’s another goofy van picture:
