DC Trip Update: Twitter, ETA
Sign up now for tweets from the road!
The plan, currently, is to leave NYC by car at 6:30-7 AM, arriving in DC before noon and hitting our first stop, the Capitol, at noon. Mr. S and I have to work out whether to stop at the hotel first, parking, and various other dull concerns, but the goal is the Capitol at noon.
From there, we will hit various stops along the way, concluding at the Lincoln Memorial, and depending on what time it is then, we will either proceed directly to the nearest beer, or tweet instructions.
The Twitter stream linked above is the best way to keep track of our location throughout the day.
The itinerary will firm up in a day or two; in the meantime, if you live locally and have any wisdom re: security at some of the bigger monuments, please share. (Please note that I will likely not go inside any of the buildings, and will give various war memorials a decent berth.)
Ford's Theater is also under consideration as a stop; your thoughts on that are welcome.
Watch this space.
