Hey, we were at Sackler Gallery on Saturday: http://www.asia.si.edu/exhibitions/past.htm. edlib, I envy you so much, not having a car is kind of disability here
I went there on Sunday! Funny that we might have walked right past each other this weekend.

I've been parking everyday and taking in all the sights on foot. A LOT of walking!!!

Last day in DC... So much left to see... Oh well... I'll just have to make another trip.

Went to the doctor for a check-up this morning. I seem to be in top condition (win). Also missed boring company meeting because of it (double win). Also will get company lunch that goes with the meeting despite not being at the meeting (epic win).

Had a great weekend. Kathleen came down Saturday, and we spent all afternoon and evening together. Eating shopping drinking, partying, drinking, wacthing movies, and pausing said movie to do some um... exercising.

Sadly my brothers family really doesn't want to spend time with us. His wife kept going on about how my Niece needed to work on her Latin homework. IMHO it seems more like a conviniant excuse to not do things. Talk about living your life through your daughter.

Monday i didn't do much. Which was fine

Spent the morning at the Spy Museum. Very cool.

Afternoon at the National Gallery of Art. Kinda had to rush through that one.
It's a shame too... Because I instantly regretted not having more time to spend there. I was really digging it... Even the modern art, which I'm not really much of a fan of.

I'll have to come back and start there next time. I hate to leave.. But I'm also kinda happy to be heading home at the same time. After dinner I have to start packing back up, and planning my route back North.

I think i'm gonna cut across NJ south of Atlantic City, and head up the coast from there.

Oh... It happened... But all photographic evidence was confiscated and destroyed by a joint task force of the NSA, FBI, and Interpol... In the interest of international security.

That much awesome in one place could upset the planetary balance of power, and cause serious unrest.

And the iPhone too...

Didn't actually cross my mind. I'm pretty terrible about such things, actually.

(And after all this time hanging around with Japanese women...)

In North Jersey. Spent an hour in Atlantic City. Pretty skeezy place. Pics on Facebook though...

Should be able to get around NYC tonight before calling it quits for the day.

No... Just walked along the boardwalk and looked around,.. But it was FREEZING there... So that didn't last very long.

I'm in a motel room SW of NYC. I didn't make it around the city like I had hoped... But I should still make it home by tomorrow evening... Which is good, because I really don't want to pay for another night of motel rooms.

So,

I made sure that I found my paperwork that I filled out during my early days of being in the navy....






wait for it....












Navy College Fund $50,000
+ the current Gi bill

Just wait 7yrs and I'll ask for my LF screenname to be changed to "Dr. Kookee"

Home.

Finally... typing on a real keyboard! And a large screen! What a luxury!

Travel was a bit of misery. Snow kinda sucked... but the roads were actually all right.

A pile of letters and hundreds of emails to sort through... tomorrow. Haven't even unpacked my car yet. I think I'll hold off telling most people I'm back... I refuse to get behind the wheel tomorrow.

My knuckles are actually raw from holding the steering wheel for that many hours.

But I had a good time! I want to plan another road trip again... just not right away.

Random snaps I took of things that caught my interest on my trip. There's really no rhyme or reason to what I photographed, so don't ask. Mostly, it's just stuff that made me say: Cool!
