I thought about going to see my old friend "The Showboat" after leaving this, but going from the top of the widest part of the State to the other end was not practical. Plus, it is like a kabillion degrees here. Yeah, lets run around on a big metal thing! I did really want to try out the 1MC circuit like someone else I know. I have always braved the heat it the past, I think I can avoid the tourists and have a better time in the fall or winter on the State's WWII Memorial.
I will be real close to Norfolk, VA and perhaps OldNFO can provide tips to seeing stuff in Norfolk.
