Go to the Washington DC Travel & Adventure Show

This show has 250 vendors with information on domestic and international travel. We can pick up lots of literature and ideas, then have lunch on-site and get to know each other. I went two years ago and it was fun. Cost is $15, payable at the door, but watch the newspapers for discounts. The show runs for two days; I am organizing this for Saturday. If anyone wants to organize a Sunday group, let me know.

We can walk around separately or form small groups with interest in certain destinations.
Then we'll meet for lunch at 12:30. I'l give more info on that after I see what kind of interest there is.
