Reason Rally Update

Reason Rally plane tickets in hand!

I live about 8 hours drive time from DC, so I was going to drive down on March 23, but I have to work fairly late that day, so I decided to fly down on Saturday morning, March 24.

Tentative plan is to meet up with a few other friends near the statue of Joseph Henry on the grassy quadrangle side of Smithsonian Castle (which is pretty close to the RR stage area), although I may end up getting there after the start of the Rally. Argh.

Originally, the time of the Rally was given as 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and I was expecting to show up at the after-event event at a nearby restaurant (Hemant Mehta has the details), but now Rally hours appear to be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The restaurant after-event meeting is receiving the first 150 people between 5:30 and 6 p.m., so if I stay till the end of the Rally, I can’t get to the restaurant thingie.

Besides which, I’m staying in Baltimore that night, and the last MARC commuter train leaves Union Station at 7-ish.

Well, crap. I guess I’m gonna be forced to just enjoy the Rally.

    Hey Hank, MARC doesn’t run on Saturdays at all. But, I live in Baltimore and work in DC,and will be working the store at the rally. I can probably give you a lift back to Baltimore after all the fun and games if needed. I’m sure you can lift my email address from my login here. Lemme know if I can help.

      TV200: I couldn’t find any login info.

      I was sure I found Saturday schedules in my original search, but checking now the schedules all say “Monday through Friday Only.”

      Damn. Now I have no idea how to get TO the Rally.

      I’m checking out Scott’s suggestion of the bus (below).

        So, I subscribed to this post, and I sent an email with my contact info to the address that the notification came from. ‘Twas a gmail address, so if you have more than one, check ‘em all.

    Hoping I can make it downtown for a few hours that day but not sure I will be able to. I will be there in spirit, though!

  • Reginald Selkirk

    Maybe those nice folks from Westboro Baptist will offer you a lift.

    It may not be completely convenient for you, but you could maybe take the B30 bus from Greenbelt station to BWI, and then find a way to your place in Baltimore. The last bus leaves Greenbelt at 10pm. It’s $6.

    I’ve always gone to BWI when visiting DC, and the bus is pretty helpful there.
