For the first time, we did not get to where we wanted to go because mapping failed us. I took a wrong turn two times, each time adding 4-5 miles to the route. As I was following our mapped route along the New London Turnpike, the road became an unpaved path through the woods. I stupidly rode on for a mile or two thinking the unpaved stretch would be temporary. Finally, I turned back and rode up a parallel state road until I got back on the New London Tpk. At that point, my phone battery and CI battery were almost dead so I called for Jack. He showed up in less than 15 minutes, and directed me until I got on a most amazing bicycle and jogger path.

Great dinner at Eileen's followed by an Orioles victory on the radio and then bed. Good day all around, but twenty miles short.
