I did a bit of searching and I found that they have buses going to all of the major cities and that (for $135 - ouch!) I could get on a bus in Chicago at 9:30pm on Friday the 29th that would arrive in D.C. at 9am Saturday morning and would pick me up at 6pm that day and bring me back to Chicago Sunday morning!
So, if I can swing it, I may have to find someone to write a guest blog for me on Saturday the 30th, but I'll have a great blog post when I get back with photos and stories to tell!
What do you think? Are you coming with me?
