  1. Hey guys, at the moment I am about to head off to sleep and preparing for a 9-10 hour drive and probably 2-3 days of driving. My family and I are headed out to our nations capitol (usa that is ;)). We live in Omaha, Nebraska so that is in the center of the US and we have to go about ehh 900 miles?

    Luckily I am a tech master and have hooked up a 9in portable DVD player to a Wii and have brought about 20 games and several DVD's. (I have done this several trips and it totally makes these car trips worth it :D)

    I will be on my cell phone hopefully being active on the forums and everything to see if anyone is in DC and wants to meet up :).

    I know it sounds weird to meet up in DC but what could go wrong lol? Being a tourist is a blast! Exploring new places that completley baffle you and make the drive there worth it :)

    If anyone has any suggestons for places to visit in DC list them please! I will take them all into consideration!

    IF for some reason you live in the DC area and have free time next week, maybe bored of MC for some reason also; hang with me and my family! We would love some guidance and local tours! We have a couple of relatives and friends who live close to DC in the suburbs so we are staying with them :p.

    I am bringing my laptop but, my Grand Caravan 201 van's electric outlet doesnt have enough voltage to power it so no MC until at the hotel or relatives :p.. I hopefully don't need to PM ICC to make sure my res doesn't go derlict lol now that would stink.

    Well I will check what has been posted here in the morning as I am extremely pooped, Night!
  2. I heard the Smithsonian is absolutley amazing and that you could spend a whole day there :O. I can't wait for tommorow but I do need my sleep lol

  4. Been there- so much fun. My recommendation is to not waste any time while there. I dont know how long you will be there; but unfortunately there is no way to see everything. Have fun! (Derelict policy does not apply to supporters)

  8. The national cathedral is beautiful.

    Of course, contact a Nebraska rep at the capital building and you can get a tour by their interns. That is an amazing trip.

    My favorite Smithsonian was the American History - or maybe the Air and Space.

    Visit the Library of Congress. You don't get to see the books unless you wait forever in line to get a library card. But the building itself is one of the most spectacular in DC. It was beautiful.
