It's pretty easy to get to, but make sure you go to the Virginia entrance. There is a Maryland entry, but it will land you on the wrong side of the river!

Here are directions.

I would suggest taking the George Washington Parkway into the city. It is a scenic route overlooking the Potomac River and a more direct route from Great Falls. Sightseeing info on that road can be found here.

FWIW, I think you probably could travel on Rt. 66 inside the beltway. According to VDOT the restriction is for "Heavy-Duty Trucks (two-axled, six-tired, or larger)." However, I will call VDOT on Monday just to be sure.

In trying to keep this simple, I'm rethinking this. I'm now looking at exiting I-66 at Fairfax County Parkway and going north to Reston. An overnight stop at Lake Fairfax Park Tuesday the 8th and I'm only about 8 miles from Great Falls. I could even sleep in a bit.

Here's wishing all of you WDCU ralliers a sunny and wonderful Cherry Blosson Festival from one of your faraway members in Missouri. We wish we were there with you to celebrate Washington's beautiful cherry trees in blossom and to rally around the Airstream campfires. Someday we'll be able to head East and join one of the WDCU unit's fun gatherings...until then, we'll bend an elbow in toast to all of you! ~G

On the road

I head out around 2pm today for an eventual rendevous at Great Falls National Park, Virginia next Wednesday and then CBR. I've got to work in Northern VA and then fly to Charleston, SC early next week - so I'm headed south down the I81 later today with the 58 SOTR. I'll be working on my plumbing in Northern VA this week. Only 9 days left until CBR starts!

Looking forward to seeing you at CBR, where happy hour never ends. I suppose it's no accident that your post was number "76".

Although I am not going to this rally, I had to post - I'm in DC today for a meeting and have to say that the trees are in their full glory and should be for the next 3 weeks. Ya'll are in for a treat. I keep reading and want to join you for next year, maybe join the WDCU for just this reason.

Have fun at the rally.

Mike

Looks like a great weekend coming!

So sorry I'm stuck here in VA Beach. All y'all have a great time, and don't drink TOO many adult beverages.

Thinking of you. Paula

Looks like my prediction on the weather isn't going to come true:

Long term weather forecast - looks like 60s Wed-Fri and Sunday, 54 Saturday, and a "couple of showers" Friday and Saturday. Not too bad. The nights look pretty cold though!

I'll update the link as we get closer.

There is quite a difference in forecasts depending on where you look.
