Losing Ten Pounds, Ice Cold Water, & Traveling Beyond Reception

I must have lost at least ten pounds walking around the Burholme section of Northeast Philly. Erik, Alice, Tsvet, Ryan, Marielle (Ryan's special ladyfriend), and I began walking as the temperature struck 95 degrees.

Starting at Dunkin' Donuts on the corner of Oxford and Rhawn St., we each set off in different directions. Some preferred to work in pairs (e.g.- Ryan and Marielle, Alice and myself) and some, like Tsvet and Erik, chose to go solo.

Perspiring profusely after an hour, we were having little success on the preliminary streets. We surmised that most people were either at the shore or enjoying (as we wish we were) a neighbor's holiday bar-b-que. Needless to say, we were elated to receive a call from Joe that Raj would be joining us to meet the people himself. Excitedly, we traipsed back to the lovely air-conditioned Dunkin Donuts to meet him.

Moments later, the candidate Bob, Joe, and Mike arrived sporting two-dozen bottles of cold water. After securing a bottle for the road, we vectored away from the intersection, and this time, we hit the neighborhood hard.

First, Raj teamed up with Alice and was greeted as a welcome sight at many of the homes. Mike and I veered off in the opposite direction and gathered signatures for our petition. We found out the hard way that Burholme Ave. is really an artery street with many smaller streets branching off of it. Fortunately, there was a good amount of people at home.

Mike and I traveled so far from the others that even our cells phones didn't get reception. By the time we were done, everyone had already ventured home… with one more successful door-to-door day under their belts.
