Hi Nick and Chazz,
I'll be hiking at Harper's Ferry, WVA on Saturday morning - not sure when the hike will be over and when I'll get into DC. In the event I arrive at the museum in between your 3-4pm checks (or after), would it be possible to contact either of you by cell (text if necessary). This will avoid searching for you fruitlessly. Thanks, JB.
