Because these places are filling fast, I will check for other lodging locations later tonight or tomorrow and post links.
If you have not booked a close-in suburban hotel yet, make haste!
Link to list of many hotels in DC area. Kristinn typed in a query for two night stay, and it gave him this page.
Good luck, everyone!
Hotels and Room Sharing-- I got one HERE
Split four ways, that room of yours is a bargain at around $80 per person per night. Great location, too.
That's a suite, too; so a group of Freepers could share that room comfortably and very affordably.
Looks like we're thinkin' along the same line.
i wish i had the original of that pix!
btw,if i could go this time, i'd even have time to ask you to dance! imagine that!
I'm more of a traditionalist. Black or White would be entirely appropriate. :)
Will we be able to bring our cameras into the ball room area?
Still cameras will be okay. We're not sure about video cameras, yet.
Brief us when you get back-and have the opportunity.
-good times, G.J.P.(Jr.)
Okay so will there be any SWF's age 25 and below present? I can't dance with my mom all night!!!
Yes. I'm sure you'll get along fine.
LOL, my daughter will be there, but she can't walk yet much less dance. Good luck to you! :o)
Sweetie, I'm not single and no longer under 25, but I 'am' female and like to dance! I'll leave a spot or two on my dance card for you, in case you don't find any other more appealing dance partners! ;-)
Pinging some GirlFRiends.
Hey Jen! Bought your dress yet?
I'm going to wear one of the three dresses I bought for my daughter's wedding! hahahaha I hope to be able to fit in the sexy sparkly mermaid style dress! If not, I'll wear the one that is a bit more conservative that I wore to the wedding. :( How about you???
What do you mean telling that young FReeper that your daughter is ugly? She is NOT! She is beautiful! And sweet as can be! Maybe a bit young for him though. Ahhhhhh! I think I figured it out. ;-)
Is anyone else staying at the Days Inn in Arlington?
IIRC, DFU and Mr. Buzzcut are staying there.
I'll be there. One night.
Great! Which night then? We'll have to look each other up
Has anyone figured out yet how to identify each other? For us new members ( I hate the word "newbie") we will need to arrange something.
We're looking at the Quality Inn in Arlington. Close enough.
I have no clue as to proximity of things in that area.Is Quality near Days Inn?
The 20th, Inauguration night.
Check out some of the after Freep reports to help learn the faces.
Can you check mapquest or yahoo maps for hotel proximity? Or call Days Inn and ask them?
I think BufordP is in charge of that. Buford?
We'll be the ones wearing tinfoil hats.
Jimmy Valentine's brother is busy making them right now. Right, JVb?
We'll all find one another at the dinner the night before. And no, that has not yet been planned. It will be planned when we are much closer to January 20th.
First you have to give the secret sign of recognition.
No but I will be happy to post the link on how to make the DC Chapter tested and approved tin foil hat.
Hold on th those Red "W" hats. They may be collector's items.
Oh well then, everything is taken care of right down to the "secret" handshake. But I'll definitely need pictures of the handshake as I'm a visual person.
Is that picture on the main page 'Gene Rayburn' from the 'Match Game'?
I will not be attending, because I will be headed back to the mideast. However, I was recently in the Washington, D.C. area. If hotels are too expensive or already booked, I would recommend staying in Landover Hills, Maryland, which has several hotels. On a map, it looks like it is a long drive from the city center, but it is actually a very short drive, due to the direct route. Simply take the Baltimore/Washington Parkway south and you will be in downtown DC in about 15 minutes. Probably not an expensive taxi ride, either, if you don't want to deal with the parking nightmare that is Washington DC. For those of you who stay in the city, plan on $25/day for parking. Whereas internet is free in hotels in Landover Hills, plan on paying another $10/day for that service in the city.
Curious what the reservation numbers mean. I got number 1176 but was under the impression that there are only reservations available for 1,000. Perhaps somebody can give us an update on how things are going???
They started numbering at 1000 - each order gets a number, regardless of the number of tickets purchased
Thanks for the quick response...I think we can assume an average of 2 per number at least...don't you so it looks like perhaps 400 to me...just a guess. So looking forward to meeting the Freepers and putting a face with a "screen name."
see you there.
Im staying at the hotel, card already charged.
Let me know if I need to have a "charity cot" made available. I will have couch also, I think.
30 more days!
Aye, lad, and we could host another twenty, should they need it.
Okay, I am mailing in my check today. Is it going to the regular adress in Fresno, or should it go to Kristinn in DC? and the check is made out to FR? Let me know ASAP, thanks!
Mail it to Fresno, please. Write your order number in the memo section of your check. See you at the ball!
already bought my ticket bump!

Singin' like a lark just the other day, FReepers,
Whattaya, whattaya think I saw?!!
Crowds of Sheeple sittin' smokin' grass with greasy, smelly hair said...
"Mudboy, won'tcha join our Cause?!!"
Left don't know how it is...
RATS really don't know what slime Slick is,
So I asked 'em if Left could shed Slick's bile!!
I didn't notice but it had got very dark and I was really,
Really out of my mind.
Just then Dem RINObots stepped up to me asked US, said,
"Please, hey would we care
To all move along?" "Move along?!!!"
We ask y'all to stay and FReep and have some fun,
Right's on a ROLL!!
You know that yer FRiends will all drop by.
DemonRATS, take a good look at yourself and describe what you see
And Lib'rals, RINOs 'n' RATS, do ya like it?!!
There you sit, sittin' scair't like a wart on a hog, trustin',
Ahhh...not tryin' to fight it!!!
Left really don't care that we're comin',
We know that it's only they're weak of spine. Oh, oh, oh.
If you come down to the FReep today, Lurkers, you'd better...
You'd better open your eyes!!! Whoah~ooh~oh yeah.
Folks down here really do care, really do care, Right cares, really do...
Which, which way Truth 'n' Justice li__es.
So I've decided what I'm gonna do now.
So I'm packin' my bags to join the DeeCee FReepers...
Where the Patriots go now.
Up to Capitol Hill where good spirits fl__y.
Help Dubyuh...Let's Roll!!
The Sheeple Shall Know!!
