    DH and I are planning on going to D.C. for the Inauguration - I haven't worked out any of the details yet but I am so excited to witness such a momentous occasion!

      My dad said hotels are already selling out! I was at his last rally and we were almost at the front. We waited there standing and unable to move or go anywhere for close to 6 hours. It was well worth the wait, but if I were to go to the inauguration, I would want to be front and center. I think the 6 hour wait in a huge crowd is about my limit. The inauguration will be absolutely insane, but you will probably catch me there anyways! I live about 45 mins from DC.

      the news tonight said a lot of hotels are already booked, I know my students plan to go. Ainsleigh will be 7 months old so I am not really sure what we will be able to go to.

                Christine - what areas would you suggest for us to look for hotels that are cheaper and we could take public transit (less than 15 min on train) to everything?

                  Holy crap! I thought anyone could go... $600 is something I do NOT have! That's disappointing!

                  here is our metro system

                  Metro - Metrorail stations

                  we live off the Springfield/Franconia station and there are actually a few hotels that my parents have stayed at and they liked them
