Final womble around Washington today. It was still bloody hot, so we headed back to the hotel to shower and cool down. Dropped my Dad off at the airport and decided to belt a few hours down South to make the next few days' drive down to Florida easier.

You can tell that Washington is a Government city. The roads were essentially blocked at 1500 with traffic (no crashes or collapsed bridges or any other excuses). As a result, it took me five hours to head down to South Virginia - not really that far. On the bright side, I'm nearly out of Virginia, which is where I picked up my speeding ticket earlier in the jaunt.

Long day of driving tomorrow (should be my record distance covered). Should add nicely to my total of over 5900 miles so far!
