The Backup Plan

Sunday night: January 11th 2008

I spoke with Dan, my brother-in-law on the phone. Dan lives in Poolesville MD. Dan is our boots-on-the-ground logistics advisor. I reviewed my plan to get into DC on the morning of the Inauguration : go into DC on the Metro via Franconia leaving Franconia train station at 3:30 am.

Dan's expert, veteran, inside-the-beltway advice: "Have a backup plan".

Well put Dan. 

I will work on the backup plan. Right now the backup plan involves camping on the Mall the night before the Inauguration.  

More details to come.


  1. I think that back up plan is the same as about another million people ...

  2. good luck guys and have fun. gonna be cold!
