Heading to Yorktown/Williamsburg

If today is an indication of how my luck will go, I feel very fortunate!

My goal today was a simple one. Catch an 0800 United flight out of San Diego to Washington Dulles, connect to the Norfolk flight and take an Uber to my lodging near Williamsburg.

It couldn’t have gone smoother.

Once arriving in Norfolk my Uber driver was a fine fellow named Tommie. He drives a Limo by day and moonlights as an Uber driver when he wants a little pocket change.

His vehicle was immaculate and the 40 mile ride to the Yorktown/Cheatham Navy Annex felt like a limo ride.

I called the Annex earlier today and they gave me the bad news that Uber’s were not allowed on Base. So I assumed I would have to walk the 3/4 mile to my quarters at the Navy Gateway Inn.

However, good fortune gave me a pat on the back because Tommie had a military ID and drove me right to the front door!

How cool!

Tomorrow I will assemble the bike and go exploring.

So far so good!
