Fairfax to NYC at "nominal"
We saw remarkably little traffic and got an early start, so despite the poor weather we made great time on the road. At 6:10am we left the gas station in Fairfax and I dropped Maria off at her office at 10:23am. We made two brief stops on the highway, once for a drive-through breakfast and once for a rest stop and coffee. A few years ago after dodging traffic, winding down back roads and sailing down the Saw Mill Parkway without the least bit of drama and while keeping up as much of a conversation as one can with passengers in the back of an open convertible, Karen and Russell half-joked that I should be rally driving. Maybe they're right. I didn't check the odometer but I can tell time and we all but flew home.
