Uhm, I know approximately less than jack shit about where anything is in DC so someone who actually knows it will have to do all the planning. I just wanted to know if anyone was interested but I can't do any of the legwork.
Any takers? Anyone? If not, I understand. We can scrap it.
OK. I can do it. Does anyone else want to go on a delightful excursion to our nation's capitol?

I've no idea. I suggested spring because the weather wouldn't suck, plus the cherry blossoms might be in bloom (going during the Cherry Blossom Festival is a bad idea, though, the entire Mall is a zoo!), but really it's been downright balmy here for a while so... yeah. You'll have to bring it up with Rookie.
(PS: I live in Maryland, a Metro-ride away from Washington, and I never went to DC on a field trip either. So don't feel left out.)
People go to DC on field trips? I'm used to going to schools that have to have referendums to raise taxes so they don't have to cut cafeteria lunches (there was Fermilab one time. Oh, and the Rialto about a dozen different times. It really loses its effect the sixth time or so.)

People go to other states on field trips a lot. When I was thirteen in the eighth grade, they took us to New York City. We went up the Twin Towers--this was in April of 2001. I was too freaked out to look out the windows, though.

I've been on a school trip to another country before. If I had taken the right subjects I could have gone to Belgium, Germany, France, Canada and Nepal with my lernbocks. As it is, I only got to go to Belgium and London.
London is less impressive when you realise that I live close enough to smell the East-End.
Upon closer inspection, it has become clear that I have nothing left to say in my signature, so I did this instead.
