Get your tickets – I’m hoping we have a strong turnout. I’ve already ordered my one day DC Metro pass. You want the one day MetroRail pass.
I figure it’s < $10 and we'll probably be parked out in the boonies so it makes sense.
I can't wait though, it's going to be fun. I haven't been on a 27 hour trip in a long time. Let see when was the last time I did that, about a decade ago (The Manhattan birthday party that started at 9PM and wrapped up around 9AM).
Other times I've been to D.C.:
1) A class trip in 1977
2) A scout trip in 1978
3) A SEARCH conference in 2002
Those were all for a week or so at a time. I’ve seen all the monument as a kid but this march is going to take us on a route (Click here for PDF version) that starts near the White House, and end up near the U.S. Capitol. We’ll pass by the following:
1) The White House
2) The National Aquarium
3) The IRS
4) The DOJ
5) National Archives
6) The FTC
7) National Gallery of Art
8) The U.S. Capitol
It’s a 2.3 mile route and I can easily do that. I’ve done the marches for Breast Cancer Research and those are 5 miles. And just yesterday I did a 2.5 mile walk just to make sure I’m ready for it.
I’ll have to bring my camera with me. I plan to get lots of photos.
