My last day in Springfield and it was a beautiful day, low humidity and warm. I did not ride today but did a few things.

I first met Marti at Starbucks to visit with her and her crew and pay for over-priced orange juice (rather than over-priced coffee). We had a nice chat and I left after about an hour to go meet Kamran for lunch at the Verixon office in Ashburn. Kamran and I had a very nice chat and I told him about some of my adventures. I invited him to dinner the next time he is in Raleigh.

After lunch I went to spend some time with my parents, dad and I watched the replay of the All Star game from last night. He seemed in good spirits and we had a nice time. I left to go have dinner with Marti and see my great-nephew Oliver and his mother, my niece, Ashley.

Instead of going out or having pizza, we ended up having loaded baked potatoes and playing with Ollie. Boy does he like to eat. After bellying up to the mommy bar he had two pouches (I am so behind the times) of baby food - no glass jars for him! After dinner Ashley took me to see her and Kenny’s house. It is very nice townhouse near where my mom and dad live. I then went over to say goodbye to my parents and see if they needed anything before I left.

I went back to Marti’s house and watched a bit of tv and did some laundry. I said my goodbyes and will leave for Wiiliamsburg in the morning..

Thank you a Marti and Rob for your hospitality and use of the car. It felt good to drive around Able to wear shorts and sandals and not have to be geared up.

I am at 10,323 miles. Since I have cut my trip a bit short, guesses for the total mileage will be accepted via email as long as they are time-stamped before my last blog entry Friday night 7/20/18. Good Luck to all those submitting guesses....
