Before we were to head back home, we had a tour scheduled of the White House at 11:00 that morning. With waking early, getting packed up and having breakfast at the hotel, we had enough time to use our Senate Gallery passes that the folks at Senator Rand Paul’s officer were so gracious to give us. Between the metro, walking and all of the security checks that were necessary, we were able to sit in the Senate Gallery for 20 or 30 minutes before we had to leave to make it to the White House. While we were there, although I dislike him alot, it was neat to see Senator Reid giving a floor speech. As we left the Capital and headed towards the White House, the bottom fell out of it. There became a point just a few minutes in that it was pointless to run, because we were all completely soaked, head to toe. We walked probably a couple of miles or so to make it to the White House, only to be turned away because the tours were cancelled. The 10 hour ride home was done in wet clothes, but by the time we made it home we were nearly completely dry.
Miles walked: 31
Trip cost: $16.00 Metro $19.30 Meals $36.67 Fuel ($110.00 total) $143.67 Hotel ($431.03 total) $215.65 for 5 days
