OK, I went and took Saturday off work.

Now I get to decide if I want to:

-Go to the last-ever goodbye by-the-bag-clearance sale at the BIG used books warehouse
-Go to the big protest in DC
-Go to the littler protest in Annapolis or Baltimore
-See if the timing works to go to the book sale AND the Annapolis protest

Is anyone planning to go to the DC march?

I am super-hesitant go without being part of a group, having done giant events in DC before and having some idea of what it's like, and I'm not currently hooked up with any local groups of the sort that would send people. The ones in the other cities will probably be smaller and calmer, since most local people will probably make the short trip to DC. On the other hand if I did have a group to hold my hand it would probably be worth going to DC...

My mom is going to the DC event with friends. I can give you contact details if you want -- petralemaitre at gmail.

I'm going to my local protest for health reasons, i. e. I get to go straight home afterward and not face massive travel times.

(My mom is not a fanperson but she is wonderful and has gotten used to compensating for other people's health issues, what with having a disabled daughter & all.)

Yeah. She's driving down from New England with friends, staying with their friends nearby overnight, and then getting there on local transit.
