I'm available for transportation toward Virginia on Monday. If the weather's good, I'm heading for Front Royal and the Skyline Drive, which will take me through most of Virginia north of Fredericksburg.
I'm in Fredericksburg now, heading north on U.S. 301 on Friday afternoon. Will that help anyone?

For persons looking for rides to/from the Getaway try the Getaway specific Yahoo Group http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/FSGWgetaway/ (you will have to join this Group)
...or if you only do FaceBook there is a FaceBook Group:

Ok, train travel is looking better and better for me. Can someone in the DC area get me from the train station to the Getaway? Is there any particular station that works better than another? The 6:15 AM train from Boston is looking like my best bet, which would arrive at Union Station at 2:00 PM. Any help before I book my tickets would be appreciated.

If one takes Amtrack to the downtown DC station, it is an easy ride on Metro to the Silver Spring station, where there are various local folkies who might help. Stay in touch as we analyze the situation and make some calls.

It DOES depend on time of arrival,,,etc.

Glad you and Jen are coming to Getaway this year, Art.    Last year we had at least 6 people from NC (3 different cars) at Getaway, and I hitched a ride back with Dani and Abby (then took Amtrak from Raleigh to Greensboro for under $11). I'm hoping there will be someone driving back this year who has room for another rider, but if not, the train (or maybe Craigslist rideshare) is an option.   

BTW and FWIW, my Southwest airfare of $320 is for two one-way tickets, one from Portland to Baltimore/DC and one from Raleigh/Durham to Portland.    Two one-way tickets are as cheap as one round-trip ticket.
I really love Southwest's policy of not charging fees for changing flights.   If you need to cancel one flight, what you paid for the ticket can be applied to any other ticket within one year.      So if I have the chance to get a free stand-by ticket to the Baltimore/DC area via a friend (which is a possibility), I can apply my $153 to some other flight that I take before June 13 next year.

Heads up, folks! Southwest Airlines is having a huge airfare sale, with fares as low as $99 one-way and up to about $155, depending on distance.

I just booked round trip from Portland, Oregon, to Baltimore/DC and back for less than $320. It's really hard to beat that -- and Southwest does not charge a fee for changing your itinerary (to different flights) or for the first two checked bags.

Now I just have to find a ride from the Getaway to North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Greensboro or somewhere within an hour or so of there).   Really looking forward to staying up till ungodly hours and being totally wiped out after marathon music sessions!

Still juggling the options of coming to Getaway this year or in 2013, since it seems unlikely I'll be able to afford the airfare for both.    I'm not racking up the frequent flyer miles the way I used to anymore, so after I use what I already have for a ticket, it may take 3 years to earn another one.   Reality bites sometimes.

Anyway, I hope to be there either this fall or in 2013.

Amos, the Getaway is a priority, isn't it? Me, I dumped a year-round job so I could get back to the Getaway! Well, maybe that was only part of the reasons for my job change, but it was a pretty big one. I have already cleared it with the boss at the new/old job. Life is getting better by the second.

Kendall has started a thread looking for house concert leads for two members of the Maine trio Meteora; Kat Logan and Jim Loney.
http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=144646&messages=2 They will be attending the Getaway this year and are looking for house concerts on the way down (and maybe on the way home?)

I'd recommend Kat and Jim even if they weren't friends; good music, wide variety of genres, both vocal harmony and fine instrumentals presented by charming people.

This show is set for the last weekend in Sep/ first weekend of October time frame, as is the Getaway. I will consider flying from Dallas to BWI again, but it's tough when you only get maybe 30 hours of Getaway, plus logistics of bringing 2 sets clothes, etc. We'll see.

Ernie Johnson, who has not lived up to the promise, started this one:

CHO: Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'm going to the Getaway.
Out where the lonesome seagull cries, on the edge of the Chesapeake Bay
All the folks stay up all night,
Making music 'til the rooster cries,
Lord willing and the creek don't rise,
I'm going to the Getaway.


I've gone to work most every day
The whole dang year it seems
Trying to forget the singing sounds
That show up in my dreams
I've been through bitter winter months
And hellish summer days
And now by God, I've had enough,
I'm going to the Getaway

CHO

I long to see a country road
That leads up the shore
With folkies wandering 'cross fields,
Two hundred souls or more.
I hunger for the songs they sing
And the funny things they say,
So mister, stamp my ticket quick,
I'm going to the Getaway!

CHO

I want to hear old Bobert shout
The blues when they're done right.
And watch Big Mick put the Irish out
When he gets a little tight
I want to hear sweet Liz LaPrelle
Hold the whole place in her sway.
By God I'm done with the working life,
I am going to the Getaway.

CHO

When I get there I'll drink all night,
And sing a thousand tunes
And if I watch the windows right,
Catch sight of Ernie's moon!
I'll listen to the cowboy songs
While the ladies dance and play.
Be still my heart, I'm off to start
And I'm going to the Getaway!

As someone said earlier, the Getaway is cheaper if you belong to the The Folklore Society of Greater Washington...enough cheaper that the difference more than makes up for the membership. I guess that we are members every other year, more or less...gotta do that one of these days. Having members in New Mexico, California and (I assume) the UK puts a new meaning on "greater", doesn't it?
