On the morning of Sept 21 we will drive to Mount Vernon to camp until the morning of the 24th. The W3R has asked us to delay our "official" march into Virginia until the morning of the 23rd so that more people can attend the border crossing ceremony at the Francis Scott Key Bridge.
The ceremony will happen about 8:00 AM as we cross and enter Virginia.

We will then walk down the GW Trail to Mount Vernon. Although this is not the actual route we are giving ourselves a treat after marching through cities and urban areas since Princeton. We will be camped at Mount Vernon on Sept 21, 22.
