The below message was sent by Don Ristine 212th 65-67. b He talks about prices in and around our hotel. I want to add a caution. Make sure you find a parking garage that accepts the height of your vehicle. I am traveling with Ray Rogers 981st 71-72. He has a truck that stands 6 foot 6 inches. There are not very many garages that accept that height. There is a few so as Don says check around. Another caution most of the garages I checked on only allowed one entry and one exit for the entire visit. If you plan to go out and sight see in your vehicle find one with unlimited entries and exits. Don wrote about goggling parking lots. I found a website titled Parking Panda. Shop around, there are others out there.
I saw a e-mail (Can't find now) asking about parking in D.C. There is a parking lot right around the corner from the Renaissance Hotel. Reservations are needed. There are asking $20.00 a day, the hotel is asking $50.00 a day. Go in Google as ask for parking in the Washington DC area. They have lots of locations and prices.
I was thinking of flying, but prices are going up, and now I plan to drive. Its cheaper. This is a regular website that has a whole selection of parking lots near and far.

Reunion Update 2015
This is from Charlie Hahn 212th 66-67 Reunion Coordinator.
We've got about 12 rooms left.
Thanks to David Johns 981st 70-71 I looked into reserving parking space for Ray Rogers' 981st 71-72 truck since Larry Majeski 212th 65-66 and I will be riding with him and sharing a room too. At any rate you might want to check into parking fees in and around our hotel. There is a wide variance in fees.
