  I am hoping that I can get a little help with some travel plans without 
getting too much junk mail.

My wife and I are planning to take a little vacation starting next week. Our 
plan is to fly our C182 up the East coast to New England. With the weather 
the way it has been going for the past month, I was thinking that it might be 
a good idea to get a head start. You know, sort of like leaving for a contest 
a day or two early to make sure that you are there for your 20 minutes of 
flying (three flights at 7 minutes each-some of the most expensive flying I 
have ever done). Anyway, we are thinking of going to DC for couple days. We 
would arrive in the DC area on Friday and depart on Sunday. The problem is 
this. Which is the best airport to fly into so that we can get downtown 
without renting a car that will sit in the hotel parking lot at $15.00 per 
night plus the rental fee of $50 per day? I looked into Manassas where it 
appears we can take the train into DC on Friday, but there is no train back 
to Manassas airport on Sunday.

Any of you who reside in the DC area who a solution to this most difficult 
problem can write back directly to me at imacro at and save the list 
from such boring issues.

By the way, I like the Hunk idea, but I would hate to give the chance to fly 
at Nationals. Still, sailing with all of your wives while you 80 or so 
competitors fight for one of 15 trophies doesn't sound like bad odds.
