I'll be there. I'll bring tape. I think I have an orange bandana, too!

CB - GREAT. The less I have to remember to bring, the fewer things will be forgotten. :-)

Hey Rena, do you happen to know what Metro station that Starbucks is closest to?

It's right across the street from Archives/Navy Memorial on the Yellow and Green lines. Directions from VA metro stops.

Trust me to screw up my own directions. *eyeroll*

The Archives/Navy Memorial metro station is located on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 8th and 7th Streets NW. Starbucks will be across 7th street from the station, so when you go up the escalators, you're going to be facing the opposite direction of the Starbucks. Go around the escalators toward the Capitol building and you'll see the Starbucks. IIRC it's a red-brick building.

thoughtcr1m1nal - don't apologize! You gave a better description of the Metro information than I could have.

Going to be there with my kids - I had an idea for signs:

I'm going to take pieces of muslin (which I have lying around) and paint with fabric paint on them and pin the fabric to the backs of our coats.

No War
No More
No to Escalation
US out of Iraq

God, now I'm spacing out on where suggested things to put on signs were...sheesh...

Hi, this is TinPa. I am bringing a friend who lurks at dkos. He has a UID but he almost never posts. We are coming in his car and bringing two other people. I assume they will hang with the dkos group since they need to stay with Jim to get home.

What is the route of the march? Will there be speakers before the march? If my back should decide to give out, is there a chance I can grab a cab to the halfway point or so to rejoin the crowd?

Teresa - Glad we'll see you! The route has not yet been finalized, which isn't unusual. According to the UFPJ Website, the rally with speakers will be BEFORE the march, at sometime in the 11am-1pm range. I can't speak to the cabs, simply because (presumably) the march route will be cordoned off. That is not to say that you can't get a cab a block up or over, but it depends on the route. You're on the email list, so you have my cell. If I get updates, I'll let you know.

CharlieHipHop did a diary at dKos asking folks to bring drums and pots and pans and noisemakers. i have a plastic slide whistle i'll bring. tambourines are good. anything that makes noise! helps to keep up a march chant. and it's just fun!

I'm on my way to Our Nation's Capitol.

Sort of. My train doesn't leave till 3:15AM so I'm sitting here in Cincinnati's Union Terminal, a gorgeous art deco building.

I've posted a couple of pics of the terminal on my blog about my completely uneventful evening.

We just found out that my hubby tore his meniscus (something in his knee) and he can't go.

I've got a kickass sign - it's the same one I carried in 2005 - "Bush is a War Criminal" (I think that probably still applies). So I've got a great sign, and my orange bandanna. But I am stupidly reluctant to go by myself.

Someone please talk me into going by myself.

deBOraaah - Well, the first best reason is that this is really, really important. Every body counts (literally) toward making a statement that can't be ignored.

The second best reason is that you won't be alone. Only the drive - but the marching? We're doing that together. I hope this has convinced you!

Hubs really doesn't want to miss this. He can't walk, but he can stand with a cane. So we're going to be stationary somewhere - near Lafayette Park I'm thinking. I'll be the one with the orange DKos bandanna screaming "WE'RE the deciders! Bring our troops home!".
