Captain's Log

There and Back Again
Stop 14 – Landover Hills, MD – 3900 miles

I surprised my grandma and visited her again. Apparently I should get married. Good tip.

I stopped for one last bowl of clam chowder. And I got some clam balls too. They are actually called clam cakes but they are shaped like balls so I call them clam balls.

Drove through Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and stopped here in Maryland just outside Washington DC.

Note to Connecticut: feel free to invest in some road work.

Tailgaters are best handled by firing up the windshield wipers. This does not apply to large black vans. Just get out of the way.

I was thinking about all of the historic sites in New England for the revolutionary war and for this event and that event and then I started thinking about the history in LA. Where the best I can do is show visiting friends where OJ killed two people or where the riots were.

When I entered New Jersey I remembered the last time I was in New Jersey was many years ago and I was lost with a friend trying to get into New York City. No GPS. We could not find our way into the city. Of course we could have just asked for directions. Whatever!

The place I'm staying at is by far the scariest so far on this trip. It's a Comfort Inn but my guess is the Comfort Inn Standards Officer hasn't been by in a decade or so. I'm in a no smoking room but that does not stop the pot smoke in the hallway from getting into my room.

Tomorrow's target: (assuming I live through the night) somewhere in Virginia or Kentucky but not until I check out the sites in DC.
