I haven't specifically looked at prices in the DC/Baltimore area, but for car rentals I've usually found the best rates through Travelocity or through Southwest's web site (you can book cars even if you're not flying SW). And I typically wind up either with Alamo or Dollar.

Thanks, folks. Have revised plans and will be looking into Rent-a-wreck. I have used them before out East. Just did a quick check on Orbitz, (Thanks Fortunato for the addy!) for motels. Looks as though the least expensive is about 13.6 miles away so that should be okay.

For anyone else wanting to research such things, the camp addy is 5100 Chalk Point Road, West River, MD 20778.

Thanks a bunch,

There are second-tier rental places in some areas, with names like "Rent-a-Heap" and "Rent-a-Wreck", that provide perfectly serviceable cars for less money. They're not national chains though.

Jeez, just did a bit of checking...the motel and flights look affordable, but the rental car is almost as much as the flights! Gonna have to call some family and see if they have a spare car and also check on train rates.

Only 6 months to go....

Kat--you HAVE to be a definite--and Alba too!

I like my privacy also, but this is so chock full of wonderful people and music that you won't want to take the time to have some private!

While I hope not, with the Getaway the same weekend as NOMAD, it may well be possible that you and your spouse could have a room to yourselves. If not--Motel 6's tend to be cheap and clean.

Or if you can get down to Boston you can travel with me, whatever 'Ve haff vays off makink you go, JA!'
Apart from which there are at least 6 folks coming from Maine that I know of, so there is no excuse for not coming.
I am definitely going back up to Maine afterwards too, wouldn't want to miss my annual visit to the Press Room in Portsmouth.

So Marion, how the heck do you book time off that far in advance? Are you overprepared for life again? Tsk tsk.

But look, hey, everybody, this date and venue change is AWESOME!!! Cause it removes two of the main obstacles that have kept me away since my only Getaway visit in 2002.

1. The date doesn't conflict with Ontario Council of Folk Festivals conference. Which I have once again sworn to attend (which will be a first). Gotta act locally.

2. You moved to somewhere with HEAT! You can't imagine how happy that makes this sissy Canadian outdoorsy guy. I like the outdoors outside and the indoors warm.

But could you please:
3. remove that Commando in Chief guy? I don't like going that near him. Oh well. I heard his Mouthpiece in Chief quit today and hopefully Rove is next...maybe even Rummy and Cheney...

Damn I think I'm going to make it! The Canadian dollar is way up too...might even offset the price of gas ^^^^^^^

This is sounding more as if we will need to look into motel rooms, for both our comforts. I need my sleep and privacy.:-)

If I remember correctly, there are electrical outlets in all bedrooms. I certainly remember them in the retreat center, and the other houses are new enough that building codes would certainly require them.

Each house and the retreat center, by the way, has a common room (perfect for music making, although we'll designate some quiet-at-night common rooms). There's also the "nature center" and the dining hall, though the dining hall isn't available during meal times or set-up and clean-up periods before and after food.

Kat's O2 concentrator shouldn't be any noisier or more disruptive than a snorer (remembering my Mom's system). Given all the folks who are admitting to sleeping in the nude in this thread alone, perhaps we just need to set up a naturist's cabin? At least "clothing optional" during the wee wee hours of the morning?

Are there electrical outlets in the rooms? I don't think I will need extra O2 at sea level but may need some at night. I don't have to have electricty for it, but it would probably be less expensive for me and my insurance company to rent a concentrator for at night than use up bottles. We also might look into a nearby motel or rent-an-RV if it isn't too expensive. Anyway had any experience with that? Cost-wise, etc.? Bunks and sharing a room is a bit iffy for us; Rog is another *nudie* and I get up to pee!:-)

I actually got Rog to look at flights online the other night. Getting him away from work is like pulling hens' teeth, but he was put on notice several months ago and this is still looking good for us. (The carrot is we go up north afterwards to see his sister in PA, our dau. and grandtwins in CT, and the rest of his family in NH, as well as Night Owl on the Cape!)
