TEWTI!

Is the suggested Harrington Hotel the official location? And: will we get a group discount?

Hotel Harrington is a suggested hotel for the PreMeet July 22-25, we are still negotiating possible group discount prices for the Official Meet lodgings in Shenandoah National Park July 25-29th, and as such have not released booking information yet for those who choose not to camp. If you choose to camp at the group site in Shenandoah, you can reserve a spot by updating your profile on AvatarMeet.com.

I now have the time off for this event. I will be there for the premeet as well as the meetup, but I am not sure how the premeet will work out. A frined of mine who lives in the DC area, and commutes there frequently has given me some ideas on how to plan this trip and keep the costs down. It may involve staying in Fredricksburg and taking the train into DC each day.

Well, I've decided to take the plunge. I was really on the fence but I honestly cannot pass up a chance like this. I'll be there. :)

Gotta brush up on my Na'vi now... :P

It will be a pleasure to finally meet you, ma ftiafpi! You were probably the first member I remember well (along with Omängum Fra'uti) from those early days.

I need to get my travel plans going. Too many other things are interfering right now. And we can't let those German sute overrun the place...

Ma Ikxeru, if I may ask, what airport are you flying into. There are four choices in the greater Washington area.

I highly recommend you check out the Bronx botanical gardens if you can make it up there. Closest place to Pandora you will probably ever find. Simply beautiful.

Of course, the Bronx Zoo is a good place, too. I know you and Ikxeru like zoos :) Just don't jump in with the tigers, like one guy did last year...

At some point, we should all look at planning out 'organized'  impromptu activities for DC.

The Bronx zoo is too far away from this event for me, but I would like to go there to meet Frank Indiviglio, who is a nationally renowned chelonian conservationist, and was/is responsible for the management of the reptile exhibits.

Ma Raiden, I don't know if you are planning to go to DC or not, but the National Zoo has a wonderful gift shop. besides the usual 'touristy' type stuff, they have a 'technical book' section with books on serious zooology topics. Someone like you, who is seriously into zoology will have a field day there! The National Zoo also has a rather impressive insectorium.

My own plans for DC are now in doubt, as I may have to stay closer in town due to some (unwanted) major changes happening at our zoo. It will be several weeks before I will know for sure :(

Just want to remind anyone (like myself) if you haven't booked hotel rooms or any accommodation that's not a flight you should do it now. We're almost exactly 2 months out and prices for things will be getting very expensive soon (if they haven't already).

What I am wondering is how to handle the bookings. I will be in the DC area from Saturday, July 20th through the day we all go out to Shennadoah National Park. I have some business in DC as well as wanting to join the group for informal tours, etc. I am giving some thought to staying in Fredricksburg, which is closer to where I will be driving around to, and taking the train into DC each day Mon-Wed. This may save a lot of hotel money, but I am not sure how much yet. I would entertain a roomate in Fredricksburg as well. Sharing a room does not mean we have to also have common activities, although i suspect there are only 1-2 trains into/out of DC each day.

Staying in DC proper keeps one much closer to the 'action', and I might be able to get a better rate through the flight I booked. But even so, it will be more expensive, and having a car will be more problematic. I understand driving is a pain in DC and using mass transit is much easier (not to mention more meaouniaea ;)  ) I am hoping we can do roommates in DC, but having a room to myself is definitely not a deal-breaker (in Fredricksburg, etiher). But as you said, a decision on how to plan this needs to be made soon.

Any thoughts on this are welcome.
