    OK, so I know it's still the middle of January, so we have like over 2 months to go, but you all know that that will go within the blink of an eye.

    So, thanks to Corry, I have what she and I believe is the definitive list. This includes everyone who even thinks they are coming. If I've forgotten you, please let me know.

    Again, as you become definite or if you have just decided to think about, I ask that you PM me with the following information so I can add it to the spreadsheet.

    Username
    Real Name (first is good enough if you're skittish)
    Who else is coming with you and their name(s)
    Date you're coming
    Hotel
    Airline
    Airport
    Date leaving
    Cell Number
    Group

    OK, so group is a new thing. These are rough thoughts to start getting ideas...nothing should be assumed to be set in stone. I just want to get an idea of who is interested in what. So, here are the groups right now:

    Group A: Museums
    Group B: The Mall
    Group C: Baltimore
    Group D: Street scenes
    Group E: Monuments
    Group F: Arlington Cemetary
    Group G: Nature

    If you want a different group, let me know and I'll add it. Also, some of these can be merged as the Smithsonian is on the Mall, but I'm really just trying to get a feel for what folks want.

    Anyway, what you've all been waiting for (or have just scrolled to):

    Like I said in the pm...some of those are just people who said they would like to try to come...my list was my trying to figure out what our group potentially could be. (and the Alison and Hobbes one should be changed to 'children' if they are coming! )

    Thanks Corry, I thought that I mentioned that it included everyone who said they were thinking about it, but thanks for clarifying so I don't get a ton of PMs...sorry to forget the rest of the Hobbes/Alison brood :)

    Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to make it.:( I really want to, but I'm most likely going to have knee surgery soon and won't have the funds or vacation time.:(

    I just PM'd you Jo to make it official but you know I'll be there just not sure what day. I guess it depends what day you and the rest of the locals head downtown. Almost pointless though for us with the exception of helping out-of-towners out because we've shot just about all there is to shoot in d.c. eh ? I am going to set up my wife with my Canon EOS ELAN 7/E that day and she will shoot some true b&w film and I'll push it later and scan it. It should be fun for all.

    That totaly sucks (that you can't come AND that you're having surgery). But keep us posted if things change.

    As I live in DC and right on the Red Line, I plan to be out and about with the Forumites all weekend (but I have no wife and kids--although I am trying to convince the Girl to come in for Cherry Blossoms). I've added you to the list.

    and let us know about the knee surgery...we'll do an artsy knee shot of everyone in DC for you so you'll feel better.

    Actually, we should start a Knee Thread, every take pics of their knees, and then you can pick the one you like, print it out, and take to the doctor and say "that's the one I'd like please"

    Jo,

    Wouldn't groups B and E be the same? To me Monuments and the Mall are the same. If you are thinking differently, this would be a large area of confusion for a lot of people. Also one other note. Not sure how many REAL out of toowners we will have but a lot of people might not know what the MALL is. When I moved here 8 years ago, my cousin asked me if I would want to go downtown to D.C. to walk around the mall for the day, and I ask him, "danm how big is this frigging mall".
