I'm actually far more perturbed to see that Richard Dawkins won't be there.  I only found out because it was mentioned in a comment re: Depp.

Johnny Depp will now not be attending. About half way down the page.

I tend to think of the Metro line as "hyperspace."  I don't care how far it is as the crow flies, if almost all the distance is covered by the Metro.  It's not subject to traffic jams and/or hassles finding a parking space.  If you're getting to an age where a long walk is not a good idea, then I am kind of surprised you didn't optimize for least walking at the expense of distance.

I have a knee which sometimes bothers me (but usually not), but I hate walking through hot or muggy weather.

Last time the Metro was super convenient because the Metro stop for the Smithsonian was practically right there, you ended up at the end of the actual rally furthest from the stage, where the tents with tables in them had been set up.  It was interesting because practically everyone in the car was riding to the rally.

It's a longer slog from any metro stop to the Lincoln memorial  GWU looks like the best bet based on the map.  I hope it's not hideously muggy that day.

I also got a nonrefundable room and studied the metro line. My room is closer to the event but still not far from the metro. I have to pace myself for medical reasons so I paid more to get a room less distant from the event. WIth a lot of on-line research, I got a reasonable price.

As for the shirt, I'm just going with normal clothes. I do have a polo shirt with a "42" logo that I might wear on the flight.

Last time I just exchanged phone numbers with someone else who'd be there.  There won't be a T|A booth or anything like that.

BTW I just bought a non-refundable hotel room right off the Metro in Virginia, so I'm committed.  (No way am I going to try to bring a car into DC; the only thing you can do with it once there is light it on fire.)

Will there be any representation by ThinkAtheist, as far as a sign or booth?

Does ThinkAtheist have Tee shirts or something, so that if someone wanted to wear one at the Rally, that could be a slight form or representation. It's possible it would be too late to get one via mail. My mind is slow.

Now only 3 weeks away. May Cthulhu continue dreaming in his sleep of the dead, and reserve his malevalent star spawn for Cleveland's upcoming fest of cosmic evil.

This could be good to visit the day after. George Hrab will attend. I published this video by him in Sunday School a while back.

Last time I went, I was there for the FFRF dinner the night before, and the main rally--I have no idea if anything else went on beforehand.  I do know that I saw the image of Cthulhu on the hotel room's bathroom door and the next day there was a "protester" shilling for Cthulhu worship; I wished I had taken a picture (the one I linked, I took after the rally); he would no doubt have been amused.

My two Smithsonian faves are Natural History and Air and Space.  I've never seen the American Indian museum.

Also, I haven't decided for sure what my itinerary is and what days I'll be there.
