~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello again, I have been holding off on posting this since things have been so busy, but seeing as its very nearly the middle of June, I figured it was time.

So at the end of the last meet up it was discussed to have a late summer DC meet up, that way those who couldn't make it the last time because of school, weather or anything else could potentially make it this time and for those who did make it could do it all over again, but this time with a 30 degree increase in temperature. :)

Please start sharing thoughts and ideas, I will do my best to research and find new and exciting places for us to visit. And of course, everyone is invited. It doesn't matter where you are, if you can make it to DC (for whatever date we decide upon) you are in. :thumbup:

I am thinking early/mid-August a.k.a. before schools start back up and also not too close to Labor Day. Any thoughts?

I'd love to come to another meetup. I had to miss most of the last one. I'm in Alexandria, so D.C. or the inner suburbs are easy for me.

My son's school starts the first of August, so he's already back at school by early to mid August. But that might actually make it easier for me to get away.

After hearing from a few people it seems that August might be problematic.

Old Town Alexandria Anyone???


Question for Everybody: How would you feel about doing the meet up in Old Town Alexandria?? There is plenty to do, lots of places selling postcards and no metro rides between sites to confuse anyone. We can also take the water taxi across the river and visit National Harbor for s a pretty view and some Maryland postcards. I think Old Town is fantastic and I think it would take less coordination over all. I can pick up people from King Street Metro Station (on the Yellow Line and not too far from Old Town), if you are particularly ambitious you can walk or there is the free trolley that goes up and down King Street, you can check it out here. Please let me know what you think. You are welcome to U2U, email or comment here.

Also, we need to pick a date. Just throwing it out there. How about Saturday, September 17th? That's two weekends after Labor Day.

Sorry folks for interrupting you :)

But whenever I read "Meet-up", I need to step in and ask for some cards for our Meet-up RR :D:D:D

So, if you don't know it by now, you should dare a look:
https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=47379

We would be so grateful if somebody can offer some cards for our RR.
Thank you :love:

Old Town Alexandria is a great place to meet, I think!

And Saturdays usually work for me as well :)

I am glad both of you agree, I think Old Town will work out well, plus it will be after Labor Day/school starting, so there will be small hoards of tourists. (Don't get me wrong, I love tourism, the streets can just get quite busy.)

As for the date - unless there are any major complaints, I am going to start planning on Sept. 17.

If you did not participate in the last meet-up, please (if you don't mind sharing) send me a U2U with your contact info, at the very least an email address, pretty please. That way, I can contact all of you at once if anything comes up.

To anyone not sure if they want to participate, we had so much fun at the last meet-up in Washington. Just do it! All ages - all walks of life - It was great!

Some scheduling conflicts have come to my attention, so how does Sept 24 work for everybody? I have already started putting together a mini-meet-up travel guide and I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting new people again.
