I just purchased, successfully, my convention ticket for $175. My VISA card was accepted. I have a receipt. It’s 9/9. Will I still be able to get credentials etc?

I am taking the train from Newport News, VA on 9/11. I am excited about the train and the march. I am Taxed Enough Already and look forward to meeting some new friends.

Look for me, I will be the big dorky white guy.

Hi, Freeper Vor Lady is at the Sheraton right now and was wondering if any other Freepers were lurking about?

Spouse and I are here. Both of us are tired - Awake till 2AM and then up at 4:45 for the flight. At least they let us go ahead and check in.

And of all the room numbers, they gave us 911! Is that good or bad?

So what’s the deal about having to pay for internet access? I’m too cheap to spend $12 bucks per day. Are you paying, or do you work off an air card/wireless phone connection?

I’m looking for a little more info on the Walter Reed event. My daughter and I will be landing at Reagan (I love that!) at 5:40, so we probably won’t get to the Sheraton National until 6:30 or so. I can’t find the post about transportation arrangements. What’s the best way to get to Walter Reed if we miss the group?

Thanks, and I am getting so excited about this!

You have Freepmail!

I’m trying to get a ‘live at the sheraton’ thread going, but it’s not working so well. My screenname does not lend itself to serious replies.

I think it is cool, man. I would love to have that room number during this event. Go buy a lottery ticket and don’t forget who your FRiends are.

Hi there! We are in a hotel near Capitol Hill.
I want to come over tonight to register and say hello. Where would I go and who do I see?

Our co-chairs have just pulled into DC after road trips from their state. I'm sure they'll be answering your questions ASAP. Hang in there!

Your best bet unfortunately will be to grab a cab. The Metro Rail which we will be using to get there will take about 45 minutes. We are leaving the hotel at 5pm to arrive at Walter Reed by 6pm.

The Walter Reed Freep is from 6pm to 7:30pm when we start to return to the Sheraton for our 9/11 Candlelight vigil.

I’m afraid with the time you are arriving you will miss most of the Walter Reed Freep.

That is my best advice.

Thanks, that’s what I needed to know. I wasn’t sure how long you’d be out there. If we get in on time, we might still make it, we’ll see. Otherwise, we’ll meet up with everybody back at the hotel.
Looking forward to meeting everybody.

Is this the live thread? I sure hope I can find it, I want to see pix and read accounts of this Historic Event.

Wish I could be there but my father in law is having surgery and we need to be with them.

I’m certainly with our FReepers in spirit though!

LET’S ROLL!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to give a big shout-out to you and all the true Americans I met this weekend at the convention.

I always wondered why my Dad (streetsmart) would make sure I setup each of his computers with freerepublic.com as the home page. After meeting you all this weekend and being a part of our march on DC (my first real contribution to our cause as an in-person activist), it is now *MY* default homepage!

I’m ‘wickedsmaht’ now ... a name recommended by a freeper I met while at the convention this weekend w/my parents.

THANK YOU!!!!

Todd Smart (aka son-of-streetsmart aka wickedsmaht)

Welcome to FR (officially)! It was great meeting you and your parents and all the other great FReepers I got to know this weekend.

It was an incredible event, and really inspiring to be surrounded by so many great patriots.
