Hilton -> NIST

    For those of you staying at the Hilton – last year a number of folks with rental cars coordinated to give rides to those who were not inclined to take the longish walk. Will those who will be driving and be willing to ferry folks to NIST please raise their hands?  And those who will need a ride? I there are enough of the later we can also ask the hotel to provide a shuttle but it will be more flexible, especially on the way back, to try the dynamic allocation approach. I think Rainer will be at the Hilton and can help coordinate if needed. And locals who are not staying at the Hilton, such as myself, can also provide transport as needed.
    Those of you who walked last year can serve as native guides to the walkers. I think we had directions last year from John Henry – I will try to repost those.
    Thanks,
    Larry

    Good Morning!
    We will have a car available and Francoise and I will go by car from the Hilton to NIST
    (and back). I think we can take three more passengers.
    Since the meeting starts at 13:00 we will meet at 12:20 in the lobby.
    I am looking forward to meeting you in Gaithersburg
    Cheers

    Hello,
    I would be happy to walk from the hotel to NIST and back. Is anybody
    else planning to walk as well?
    Looking forward to seeing you all.
    Best,
    Esther

    Hi,
    I wouldn’t mind walking either if the weather is ok. Should be about half an hour. Allowing for some time to find the meeting place we could meet in the lobby at 12:00.

    Hi
    I am staying at the Hilton but will be a bit late on the first day due to timings of flights. I expect to be at NIST by 2:00pm at the latest.
    Best wishes
    Helen

    On Tuesday I’ll be coming from Baltimore, but can swing by the hotel to transport up to three more attendees, if needed. If not, I will head directly to NIST.
    I’m staying at the hotel Tuesday night, so can take three with me Wednesday morning.
    Cheers,

    Esther,
    Francoise and I will probably walk if it is not raining too hard.

    Adam and I have a rental car for airport transfers, but we’re at another
    hotel, easy walking distance to NIST and cheaper than the Hilton.
    TownePlace Suites Gaithersburg
    212 Perry Parkway . Gaithersburg, Maryland 20877
    We’ll walk if the weather is good, but I am happy to give people rides
    from/to Dulles airport.
    We’re arriving at Dulles on a United flight around 4 PM today and
    departing on a 5 PM flight on Wednesday.
    Safe travels everyone and see you all soon,

    The bus will theoretically drop me off at NIST, but if I could grab a ride
    to the hotel with someone, that would be delightful!
    See you Tuesday!
    Best,
    Amy

    I live about 11 miles S of NIST, plan to drive, and would be happy to give a
    ride to anyone who needs it to/from the hotel.

    I haven’t heard enough need for rides, so I’m planning to head directly to NIST.
