I was thinking that we should probably see about reserving a campground/area/mall for our state. However, I'm not sure where we stand yet. Should we reserve an area for a lot of people and then offer the unused area to those who show up? Should we not reserve an area and hope there is room for us in one of the campgrounds/malls/area's that OAS has already laid claim to?
I should probably ask if we Michiganders all want to stay together as a group? I realize that not everyone is staying... so this is for those who plan to. We are supposed to go to one of the designated spots in groups of 25. Wouldn't it be best to be grouped by our state?
Also, those who do plan to stay - even if only for a few days - please contact me. You can send me a message on my page or email me at the address I've provided. :) I want to know what your plans for food/lodging and basic needs are. **This is completely optional. I'm only trying to help with personal hygiene information as well as see if anyone needs help with other necessary items (i.e.: food, camping equipment, tent/lodging).
I'll also be leaving more information on the other threads regarding food. Found some good things to share!
Did we reserve a campground for the Michigan people yet?
Not yet, Terry. Are you in a position to take point on that?
I have been asking someone who lives in VA what campgrounds he would recommend. He said Lake Fairfax, but parking for the Metro could be a problem and also Pohick Bay, said getting on the Metro may be easier staying in this one. If someone could check those two out and post their findings here that would be most helpful. I am currently registered at some campground in College Park but it is north of D.C. and I would much rather be in VA. However, there is a Metro station there and I told the friend I was traveling with "grab something" and she did. Maybe we could change if Michigan people starting reserving at another campground?
I too would prefer to stay in VA.
