OAS Travel & Accommodations


Operation American Spring will be a 100% volunteer event. Because it will be an all volunteer event, we will have no budget, so we are all going to have to put ours heads together and come up with a plan.


Trying to get even a million people in DC at one time for more than 1 day (meaning accommodations are needed), let alone 10 million, will be a daunting task, but we MUST make it work. The team here at OAS want to to do as much as possible, so we have put together a resource page to help attendees and volunteers with information on getting around DC and places to stay and any other helpful information. Thanks for reading and we hope to see you on May 16th in Washington DC!

Getting Around in DC

So folks, it’s already hard enough to find a parking space in DC to begin with and if we're going to expect millions, we are going to have to come up with a plan to get people there, because a million extra cars will definitely not fit in Washington DC. The best idea would be for everyone to park outside the city and take the metro or the bus into DC. For those that would like to try to park in DC, there is a map towards the bottom with local area parking garages.


I would suggest all OAS volunteers and attendees buy the $14 SmarTrip card with a one day metro rail pass (at least for the first day). This pass will let you ride all day long for one price and also includes the metrobus as well. I would also suggest that you get your fare card online at the following link here:https://smartrip.wmata.com/storefront and have it sent to you ahead of time. When I went to the Glenn Beck rally, it took over an hour of waiting in line just to get to the fare machine and there were so many people that we all couldn't fit on the train and you had to wait for two or three trains just to get one where you could fit and many were late getting to the event. So buying ahead of time will keep you from having to stand in any line and will save us from having a massive pile up at the metro stations.


Because the rallying points are spread over a large area, having an all day pass will make it easier for people to take the metro from one target point to another, instead of having to walk from the Lincoln Memorial to the US Capitol, which is a LONG WALK! (Please scroll down for maps showing closest metro center to each target point)

To verify info please call the Maryland state leader Grayghost @ 240-347-2258

Are you on the fence about attending Operation American Spring because of the high cost of lodging ?
I own property where you can camp Thursday thru Sunday for $20 each
It is off Interstate 95 exit 29B Rt 212 Calverton exit
Just stay on State Highway 212 for 6 miles until you get to
8531 Riggs Road 20783
When you see the HUGE cement culverts you have arrived.
Here is a map of your route:

Free street parking in front.
Sorry but NO GUNS can be brought on to my property.

On Friday morning you can catch the bus to DC right in front of my property.
The bus will take you to Ft Totten subway, about a 15 minute ride.
Here is your bus schedule:

You will get on the subway headed to Ft Totten in the direction of
Shady Grove, you will get off 5 stops later at Judiciary Square. Take the stairs, escalator, or elevator up to the Mall.
Here is your metro map:

When you get back to Ft Totten take the R1 bus to Calverton.
Tell the driver you want the Riggs Rd and Ruatan St stop.

Saturday and Sunday you will find parking downtown at the Mall.

Friday if you are not PARKED AT A METER BY 6:30 am FORGET IT !
Also bare in mind a lot of meters are 2 hour limit so be prepared to play musical chairs with fellow attendees cars.
If you see one, you are on the meter person’s clock.

Please pass this info along.

"I don't get it, why is everyone talking about campgrounds and places to stay.  If we are going to do as the Egyptians and Ukraines we need to occupy the city, shut it down with a massive amount of people.  This isn't a holiday it is an occupation until our demands are met."

This! If OAS is serious about restoring the constitutional order, we have to be serious about occupying the Mall until our objectives are achieved. This means staying on site, instead of leaving every evening to stay in campgrounds and hotel rooms. Otherwise OAS is just a weekend demonstration and should be branded as such.

Comment by Art Skillman on April 15, 2014 at 12:30pm

As we approach May 16, 2014 we have to be properly armed. This is what we have to be armed with:

*Recording devices, photo cameras, video cameras, etc.

*A thorough knowledge of the issues, not just talking points, in depth issues.

*Hand outs, including pocket constitutions.

*Questions to ask the secret service if approached. Turn the conversation to them. Put them on the defensive.

*I was questioned one day by a secret service agent. I peacefully provoked the questioning by flipping off the White House in a public location for an extended period of time. My tactic worked as I was approached and asked the following questions...Do you hate the President? Do you want him dead? Would you try to climb the fence? Do you have any weapons or sprays? Did you like President Bush? Do you like congress? The last question opened the flood gates...Why did you do what you did? This is your opportunity to turn the conversation on to him.

*Above all...be polite and respectful of the secret service.

*Ask him to do the right thing for the future of their children and throw away their uniform and join us. Ask them what are you are going to tell your children when they ask you, "Why did you protect your job to throw us under the bus?"

*I have been spit at, threatened with violence and cursed out. Don't fall for any provocations. 

*Remember...we are better than them...let's act like it.

Guess I better start to organize my personal logistics to this showdown


Comment by Bob Borell on April 14, 2014 at 7:04pm

I don't get it, why is everyone talking about campgrounds and places to stay.  If we are going to do as the Egyptians and Ukraines we need to occupy the city, shut it down with a massive amount of people.  This isn't a holiday it is an occupation until our demands are met.  I plan on sleeping on the ground wherever I am posted.  And there should be 3 rally points, the white house, congress and the national mall.  Spreading out out may thin out  the local forces but density is to our favor.  The more people in one place the louder our voices will be.  Just my 2 cents.  Also remember to bring your Bibles, His Word is our weapon.

Comment by James P. Mallett on April 2, 2014 at 11:48pm
I'm driving from southwest Indiana. I Can carry four more people. I drive a crew cab pickup. If there were enough people, I could take my motor home. It doesn't get gas mileage for crap! I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to retrieve my freedom! If I get mine back, I'll pass it down to my children. I'm planning to go by the VFW and American Legion to see if anyone there wants to come along. The best way to get the word out is to contact other Veterans Organizations. Spread the word among those , like us, that took the OATH and MEANT it,

I still have room in my Dodge Pickup travelling from Las Vegas.  Also, I haven't seen any activity in Nevada on the state site.  I have been distributing fliers in the Las Vegas area and I know there are a lot of patriots around here.  If you are reading this please log in and start communicating.  We need to get some serious interest going here.  It is very disheartening to see such lack of enthusiasm.  This is a CRITICAL event for the future of our nation.

Comment by Robert B on March 31, 2014 at 12:38pm
I have a friend close to DC. Fort Washington. He is from Trinidad and willing to put some patriots. About 6 people. It's a split foyer and the lower level flooded earlier this year so there is no carpet, so you will need mats and or air mattresses. He is a good man and very trustworthy and expects the same. You can email him directly at sandoking101@hotmail.com or contact me at rbeezel569@gmail.com
