Locations, pick-up and drop-off points

Thanks Pharos, this is very helpful for planning. I know this is just a rough outline, but if/once confirmed, could you also add the daily pick-up/drop-off locations and their approximate times? Just to plan my logistics ahead... ;) Rehman (talk) 03:09, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

We will add this once it's confirmed. "Pick up" in this case would just be we meant in front of the hostel and take the subway together, of course :)--Pharos (talk) 19:42, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
Ah that's cool :) My concern was basically to figure out how early should I leave HI-NY to reach the WTM "start point", since it basically starts at the hostel, that's great! But just out of curiosity, as I understand, HI-NY and Jazz are located close to each other (so meeting up to take the subway should be easy), but what about those staying at all the other places? (I think I know someone who stays at Chelsea as well) Rehman (talk) 10:22, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Will we visit the Statue of Liberty?

It seems Statue of Liberty is not mentioned on the schedule. --Shujenchang (talk) 15:44, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Yes, we ended up discussing this and its relative expense and inconvenience on the mailing list.--Pharos (talk) 19:40, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Expense aside, the interior of the Statue is closed for renovations right now (which sucks!) The ferry leaves every twenty minutes if you wanted to try it on your own. [| National Park Service information page on the Statue of Liberty.] --abesottedphoenix

Wikibus

Roughly when is the bus planning on arrive to DC? I'm pondering if I should join or not... Mike (talk) 14:55, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

It will arrive about 2:20pm. However, the WikiBus is currently full, we'll let folks know if there are any more cancellations.--Pharos (talk) 19:37, 29 June 2012 (UTC)
