WinterRiver is on a distinguished road
Red lights! They're close and they're high! It must be a huge ship bearing down on us! Maybe it will miss us, since there's no green light? ... Oh, never mind. I fell asleep on the couch and the red lights are just brake lights reflecting in the window.

Then there was the night I woke up, convinced I had to check on the boat. I got out of bed, went out the door, walked down the driveway, and expected the boat to be on the road. I wasn't completely crazy, I didn't expect it to be floating, I expected it to be blocked in the middle of the road. Through my confusion I told myself that the boat wasn't anywhere near there, but I still just had to check. It wasn't there....

It seems it's normal to suffer from odd disorientation after a trip.
