Yuki's Trip from 215 E. 95th St to LIRR Babylon.

Today, I had longest journey from 215 East 95th St to LIRR Babylon.
8:13am, Brooklyn Bridge <6> #7470 departed 96th St and got to 59th St at 8:20am. I exit thru 60th st NE corner, and run to 63rd St.
Next, last car #5622 on Jamaica-179th St (F) departed Lex Av/63rd St @ 8:28am, arrive 169th St @ 8:56am. I used 168th St, and went I saw LIB heading west, I ran to 165th St-Jamaica Bus Terminal.
I got on 9:04am N6 Hemsptead #222, digital screen/announcement wasn't working, and got off at HTC at 9:56am, however she was nicest driver, greeting everyone who gets on, and helping rider.I took break and bought slice of Pizza, and can of Yohoo to go.
Oh, by the way, there was lady who wanted to get on N1 made misteake and got on N6. Even it was pickup only in Queens, she was trying to catch up with N1, but nice female driver didn't make it, and escort N1 rider to Elmont Rd. Once N6 got into mid-Nassau County, bus was way crowded, only three persons behind the line.
Next, I got on N72 Babylon #404 at 10:30am, and got off at LIRR Babylon Last Stop Box at 11:26am.
After I took photo with digital camera, walk on station platform from southside to northside because I was looking for Restroom, and when I exit at north end, taxi driver ask me if I was taking taxi, and I said no, and I asked him for restroom, and he direct me toward glass door, right. I also took picture of Suffolk County bus.
Next, I got on same #404 on N72, same driver, who was also nicest, and comedian driver departed ALL BUSES LANE @ 11:36am, and got back to HTC @ 12:35pm. While I was on N72, my takeout pizza was melting my paper brown bag, so I ate, drink, took picture of landscape, and route all bus stops on N72 at same time.I took another RR break.
Next, I got on 12:57pm N32 #428 Far Rockaway, another friendliest female driver and got off at Beach 20th St/Cornaga Av @ 1:48pm because I didn't know Mott Av stop was subway, because I couldn't see the subway.
So, I ran back and got on last car #5202 on Inwood-207th St (A) with destination "LAST STOP" departed Far Rockaway-Mott Av @ 2:14pm and got off Broad Channel @ 2:16pm.
Next, I walk to Cross Bay Blvd/Noel Rd, and even I was waiting for Q21 at Q21 stop, first Q21 ex-GREEN BUS LINE BYPASS ME, but good thing, second Q21 came behind, which was #9859 ex-Baisley Park Depot @ 2:28pm, and I told driver, Jamaica Bay, please, and arrive at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge @ 2:31pm.
I went to see my friend who works there to show my magazine article, and I explore West Pond little, and took picture of Marine Parkway Bridge, and birds in Jamaica Bay, then I took birds again at highway side.
Next, I hailed from Wildlife Refuge for new Q53 LTD pattern #9765 @ 3:38pm and got off @ Broadway/75th St @4:40pm.
Next, I swipe on wrong Q33, which was only to 23rd Av, and I used my 1-trip on Student Metrocard on Q33 LGA-Central Terminal #1137 which departed at 4:59pm, 2 minutes late. He honked to his Q33 guys, next, he made friendly motion with M60 NYCT at 23rd Av/94th St area, and he let M60 go first, and I hop we could catch up with M60, and I did, so was few girls on my bus, which arrived at 5:32pm, and made to M60 #6365 @ 5:33pm, use my MetroCard, and I got off. It was race because there was M60, and it was almost like Domonal Effect, like skip-stop on J/Z.
At Steinway St, he pulled in leftside of M60 and he talk with another M60 driver. Then, I got off at 125th St/lex Av @ 6:02pm.
Next, I got on M101 LTD #5524 departed Lex Av/125th St @ 6:04pm, and it made all stop to 116th St, then got off at Lex Av/96th St @ 6:14pm, perfect timing for my 7pm computer appointment at 96th St Library.
Finally, I took M96 from 96th St/Lex Av to 96th St/3rd Av home.
THE END
Reason, I went on N72 ride, I was getting for Monday, April 2nd, for MetroCard celebration on Bee-Line on April 1st.Both directions had no traffic that time I got on.
