That's quite a story! I checked Mapquest and it seems you walked close to 7 miles. Soyou earned those sore thighs. It was quite a day, wasn't it? We had a lot of trouble getting off the Mall though.

Welcome home.


7 miles? And that's not counting the miles we walked BEFORE the little trek to the airport. Thanks for checking.
Also heard today that the airports were overloaded the day AFTER just like the MEtro was--so we were lucky to get out when we did. Despite all the hassles, think you and I are lucky we were there, and have stories to tell.

You WALKED to the airport? Wow. That is dedication! And very inspiring! I am seriously impressed!


Thanks. I think possibly Daniel might be more amazed than anyone else. And maybe this is how family legends are born.


Good grief, only Californian could think 7 miles was an impossibly long walk!

As a native Washingtonian, I am impressed by your flexibility and your stamina. The city was a zoo earlier this week, and I'm glad you made it out on time! BTW, you will be interested (frustrated?) to learn that it was 50 degrees here today.


50 degrees in Washington ?? It was colder today in California! Then again, the icy weather made the whole experience more adventurous. You are lucky to live there now--I was tempted to stick around and apply for a job working for Obama.

Duchess --While we are car-oriented out here, a 7 mile walk would be called a HIKE--and it would be on a trail, carrying water, and definitely NOT wearing Uggs. LOL.
