Tracking the Schwartzbergs
The intrepid Schwartzberg family is on the road.
Michael Schwartzberg, who was unable to get an early jump on Thanksgiving travel because of work obligations, reports that he and his family departed their Pikesville home at 12:43 p.m. bound for North Hills, Nassau County, Long Island, New York.
Traveling with Michael are his wife, Stacey Needle, and their sons Jordan, 9, and Brandon, 6. Schwartzberg reports that the boys began fighting even before they got on the road over which movie they would watch on their portable DVD player.
Schwartzberg reports that traffic is already heavy on the Inner Loop of the Beltway between Reisterstown Road and Interstate 83. Schwartzberg, wiith the encouragement of Getting There, is avoiding the Interstate 95 congestion and tolls and venturing through rural Pennsylvania to New Jersey. Once he gets to Interstate 287, however, he's on his own.
Schwartzberg's predicted arrival time is 7:45 p.m. His wife, ever the optimist, says 6:30. Brandon says 9 p.m. and Jordan predicts 9:15.
