So in my craziness I made some calls and found a store way up in Brushton NY near Canada, 6 hours away, that still had 12 scratch off tickets left. So what do I do. Well we hopped in the car left Ozone Park Queens at 4 pm got to Brushton at 11:03. Sat down ate something got back in the car left Brushton at 11:45 and got home 6:03 am. Trip was about 8- 9hours we had to stop for gas and pee brakes but we did the trip. Determined. LOLZ

 

HOW FAR have you gone for lottery.

    I would not go farther than a gas station I am already driving by. 8-9 hours seems a little rediculous to lose some money on scratchers. Especially when you can lose money on other scratchers minutes away. No offense intended. 

    Of course, if there was some real reason to think a very large hit wss there it may change the equation.
