Sounds good to me. I have reservations at a hostel in Tacoma Park, but I may be able to cough up the difference to be with the group (and get a nicer room)

Does anyone know if the Pentagon City metro stop is [practical] walking to and from this hotel? I am flying in to Reagan National & plan on walking and metro, no cabs.

BTW, my daughter says there is a good Korean restaurant right by there. That alone is almost enough for me.

Today Andrew Wilkow on his radio show gave FR a bump and talked about the convention!!

While I had to pick my rear end up off the floor, to quote Jim again “Go Andrew!!!”

Not only did he mention speaking at the convention, he tore Letterman apart and a bunch of leftists who called trying to defend Letterman’s so called joke.

Nothing like an unashamed conservative with a microphone!!

I'm going to have to start listening to this guy, I don't usually listen to radio except when I am in my vehicle though.

I guess I will have to bungee cord a satellite dish on top of my Limonomonol Phonomozine so I can hear him!

Syncro -

Wilkow is awesome - takes no crap from leftists, has his morals in the right place and never apologizes!!

I’ve been telling everyone to check him out if they have Sirius radio or not. You can log on as a guest on their site and listen.

When the tickets go on sale, we will get a better handle on it. There seems to be lots of interest.

Will you be going?

It would be great to meet you.

“Does anyone know if the Pentagon City metro stop is [practical] walking to and from this hotel? I am flying in to Reagan National & plan on walking and metro, no cabs.”

The Metro is right near the Sheraton. Also heard that cabs are reasonable too. More info is coming on Metro passes that can be purchased for the day. A good deal!

I think those dates are perfect.

To have some sight-seeing time, we plan to fly in on the 9th and fly out on the 15th.

This is going to be a fun event.

I know that there is a metro stop near the Sheraton, but I am not certain how difficult it is to walk to from the Sheraton. Sidewalks, crossings etc.

My desire is to use only the metro and my feet, no cabs. In the past I have done a lot in DC without using cabs. My wife recently lost her job and my business is down significantly, so coming to DC is a financial sacrifice.

I will call the hotel and if they will give me details on that I will post that info.

The Sheraton is at a Metro stop about 1 block away. They will be running shuttle buses for us to get to and from The Mall and Walter Reed.

For those looking to save travel $$$, be sure to check out flights into and out of Baltimore-Washington International Airport. It is a major hub for discount line Southwest Airlines (www.iflyswa.com) and there is public transportation that connects to the DC Metro System - see: http://www.bwiairport.com/en/travel/ground-transportation/trans/wmata

Southwest will not appear in searches on some travel sites - you must go directly to their site. Jet Blue and Air Tran also service BWI. If you are checking a travel website for air transportation, use the city code WAS - this causes the search engine to look at all three DC area airports (Reagan National, Dulles, and BWI) so you can see your cheapest option.

Sometimes taking Southwest to BWI can save you hundreds over the other airports (though sometimes not). But worth checking if you've willing to accept less rapid connections to save on your airfare.

Beware of DC cabs - last I was in DC they were not metered - they operate on a Byzantine “zone” system that is an open invitation for drivers to relieve you of excess cash.

I have gone to DC via BWI many times using SWA. It’s pretty easy with the Mark & Metro.

In this case my brother, who can’t come, gave me airline points for a free ticket into Reagan National. I’ll take the Metro from there to the Sheraton. I should be able to avoid cabs entirely.

Your info is good, though, and someone else will benefit from it.

TO ALL FREEPERS!
You can book your room at the Sheraton now, and we already have 10 Freepers who have done so! As soon as the Convention tickets are made available for purchase...the first 10 Freepers who have booked a room AND have purchase their Convention ticket will be entered into my t-shirt drawing!

I am donating a beautiful Free Republic t-shirt personalized with the winner's Freeper name. The Free Republic t-shirts are made by our own Freeper, “Seeking The Truth”. (We sure do have similar Freeper names but he is among the “original” Freepers!) I have arranged with Gene to make the T-shirt with the winner's Freeper name and the shirt will be shipped to the winner after the winner selects the size and tells Gene his/her Freeper name. Or, if desired, the winner can have the shirt made without his/her Freeper name applied.

If you have booked your room, be sure to watch for the Convention ticket sales post so you can do your best to BE AMONG THE FIRST 10 FREEPERS WHO HAVE BOOKED A ROOM AND PURCHASED A CONVENTION TICKET to enter the T-shirt drawing!

HERE ARE THE RULES:
1. The first 10 Freepers who have booked a room at the Sheraton AND have purchased a Convention Ticket will be entered into the drawing.

2. The first 10 Freepers will be assigned a number 1-10.

3. JimRob will pick a number from 1 to 10 (not knowing any names assigned to numbers). The Freeper who matches the number that JimRob chooses will be the winner!

BWI can be a good choice for some people - it needs to be said though that BWI is a bit of a distance from Arlinton, VA and can take over an hour driving depending on traffic.

Thanks for posting the info!!

It is very easy on Ustream. Very.

Only problem is, you need a power source and remote access to the internet.

If you want, I’ll give you a brief demo from the deck.

Transportation info from the Sheraton’s site:

“Shuttle Service: If you are flying into Ronald Reagan National Airport, we provide complimentary shuttle service every 30 minutes from 6 AM until 11 PM. Simply call the hotel from the courtesy phones available at each terminal for shuttle pickup.”

Probably a good idea to confirm this though.
