Breederman is correct it is much better to go over to RT 81 south until you are past the Wash DC traffic . Ask any over the road trucker . RT 95 south is a nightmare from NYC to DC

@Cedarman  -  You do know a good stiff brush and a washing machine will take those wood fibers off?


Kitty and I will be there both days as well.

Less than 2 weeks away.   8)      The wife and I will be walking around both days wearing FF ball caps checking out the sights.       I'm also assuming there will be a few after hours "social events" that will occur.
