LINDA BROOKS' HOUSE, 3600 T St., NW, Wash DC 20007

Host phone for last-minute calls: 2o23332826.

(This may not be quickest/shortest route but is easiest & most foolproof.) From I-495 (Capital Beltway), take the MD-190/River Rd exit #39, towards Washington. Keep right at the forks in the exit ramp. Stay on River Rd to end and turn slight right onto Wisconsin Ave NW. Go 2 miles, then stay straight to get onto 37^th St. NW. (Wisconsin bears left where there’s a gas station straight ahead; go to the right of the gas station.) Then left at 3^rd stop sign onto T St NW. It’s the last townhouse on right at end of block, white with brown shutters.

Note weekday parking is very strictly enforced. 2-hour parking ends 8:30pm, so don't park there before 6:30. They even write down license plate numbers, and will issue a citation if your car's in the neighborhood for 2 hours and 1 minute, even if you move it to a different place.

SONIA WHITE'S HOUSE, 3812 Denfeld Ave, Kensington, MD 20895

Note Sonia has a large and enthusiastic canine housemate who sometimes dances with us....

Host phone for last-minute calls: 3O15O379O6

From I-495 (CAPITAL BELTWAY) take the exit 33 N, Connecticut Ave (185). Stay on 185 for 2.7 mi, through Kensington and where 185 forks left at the intersection with 193. A few blocks past this fork, turn R onto Denfeld and find #3812 on right.

Alternate route from Beltway: North on Georgia Ave/97, fork left on Viers Mill/586, left on Univ Blvd/193, right just before Connecticut onto Newport Mill, then in a few blocks where Newport Mill bends go straight onto Denfeld to Sonia’s on left. (If you miss Newport Mill, just turn right onto Conn, right onto Denfeld, and house is on right.)

From I-270, take Montrose Rd. east which becomes Randolph Rd. Then right on Viers Mill, right on Connecticut Ave/185, and left on Denfeld to Sonia’s on right.

Or you might prefer other routes from the north side of town near the Beltway, such as Seminary Rd which turns into Capital View, or Univ Blvd/193 from farther away.

METRO: The closest stops are Wheaton and Grosvenor/Strathmore—Sonia’s between the two arms of the red line. Most folks would think it's a little too far to walk, but it would be easy for someone to pop over and get you. Let Sonia know ahead of time, including your ETA, then call her and we’ll dispatch someone to come get you. Getting a ride back to Metro afterwards is easy, or maybe even closer to home.

LYNN BAUMEISTER'S HOUSE, 6902 Sycamore Ave, Takoma Park, MD 20912 (just a few blocks from Loretta's place)

Cat in residence.

Host phone for last-minute calls: 3o12701875.

FROM NE BELTWAY: South on New Hampshire Ave (MD-650). 3.4 mi to right (west) on East-West Hwy. (See signs for MD-410; local road name in that direction is Ethan Allen). 0.7 mi to left at 1st light onto Sycamore (at Takoma Park-Silver Spring Co-Op health food store). Last house on right. (Yes, when coming from the north/west via Beltway, the NH Ave route is usually better traffic-wise than GA Ave or 193 & Carroll.) Alternative to avoid Takoma Park traffic: after turning onto E-W/410, take first left onto Elm, then 3rd right onto Sycamore; first house on left.

FROM TAKOMA PARK METRO STATION: East toward Takoma Park on Cedar, which becomes Carroll after 1st block--this is the main drag through town. Go 0.7 mi, staying straight onto Ethan Allen where Carroll branches off (after the fire station, where MD-410 comes in). Next right at the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Co-Op health food store onto Sycamore. 0.3 mi to last house on right.

DEB WEINREICH'S HOUSE, 6212 Twenty Year Chase, Columbia, MD 21045

Only 19 minutes from the DC Beltway

Cat in residence.

Phones in case you have trouble finding it: H41o9530030, C41o3753789

FROM 495 IN EITHER DIRECTION: Take 95 North to Route 175. When you exit, stay in the left lane of the ramp to go west toward Columbia. There are two traffic lights which come up quickly after the exit; proceed straight through those. Get into the 3rd lane from the right as you approach the next light, which is at the major intersection with Route 108--you want to go straight instead of splitting off to Columbia Gateway Drive with the two right hand lanes. Then take the first exit AFTER that split, towards Snowden River Parkway (North). Turn right from that ramp onto Snowden River Parkway. Then take the first right onto Dried Earth (Blvd or Rd?). Go one block and take the first left onto April Brook Way. Then take the 4th right onto Twenty Year Chase. 4th house on right, #6212.

FROM POINTS NORTH OF COLUMBIA: Take 95 South, then Route 100 West toward Ellicott City. Take the exit for Snowden River Parkway. There's a weird traffic circle at the exit; go 3/4 of the way around (which is like a left turn) onto Snowden River Pkwy. Continue south on Snowden River Pkwy through about 3 traffic lights. After going through the light at Tamar Drive, take the 2nd left onto April Brook Circle. Then 4th left onto Twenty Year Chase. 4th house on right, #6212.

FROM WEST/NORTH/I-70: Take I-70 to Route 29 South. Get in left lane to exit soon onto Route 100 East toward Columbia. Take normal right-lane exit for Snowden River Parkway South. Continue south on Snowden River Pkwy through about 3 traffic lights. After going through the light at Tamar Drive, take the 2nd left onto April Brook Circle. Then 4th left onto Twenty Year Chase. 4th house on right, #6212.
