Arrow Won't be able to make it.

I'm a resident of MD but I would not be able to make it to the meeting or the rally as I'm leaving for India today. I'll surely miss the fun, but let me do the least I could, I've contributed $100.00 towards this effort via Google Order #668532493421618

All the best to all IV members coming and wishing a grand success for the rally.

Go IV

Default Best way to get there

Hi DC guys. Need logistical help.

I am driving from NJ on the morning of 18th. I heard DC traffic is pretty bad and should park in Fedricksburg and catch a train. Is this a sound idea or is there a better way to get there?

Your help will be appriciated.

Thanks

You are right - you do not want to drive into DC. Take the train from a convneint location. If you wish to drive fruther, you can consider getting all the way down to the GREENBELT station in MD and take the metro from there.
