Heading home to see my parents. My father is starting to develop Parkinson’s, and we don’t know how much longer they will be in the house I mostly grew up in. We haven’t been to VA since 2015, and will first make a swing through Arlington National Cemetery to see my mother-in-law’s headstone. She was interred with her husband, a colonel in the Marine Corps, three years ago (to save space, spouses are interred one on top of the other).

And we will also be making a pilgrimage to Captain George’s near NAS Oceana for all the crab legs we can eat. I have yet to find a decent East Coast seafood restaurant in Texas. With this trip, our Odyssey will pass the 200k mile mark.
