Hi Terrapin Base! I'm about to be a short-term transfer to your base from out here in Sunrider. My name is Jenna and I'll be working on my masters in International Development at American University for this next year. I'm in an international dual-degree program, so my second year will be in Kyoto, Japan.

As long as all the paperwork goes through as planned, I'll be living in Silver Springs, just outside of DC. I don't think I'm going to have a car, however, so I'm not sure how many events I'll actually be able to make it to. We'll see. For the sake of space in my trunk, I don't think I'll be able to bring all of my costumes out, but I'll at least have a Padme, Leia, and a Pilot.

I'm hitting the road and working my way across the country starting next week, so I should be pulling into DC sometime about two weeks from now. I look forward to meeting you guys there!

We look forward to trooping with you. In Silver Spring you'll be close to the Metro so maybe you can make it to some events.

Welcome to the Base!

Kellie is right in that you will be close to the Washington Metro system (WMATA is the official acronym for it), so you'll be able to get to a fair number of troops within the DC area on it. My advice if you want to go that route is to get a SmarTrip card (you can get them at any of the stations). They're usable on just about all the local Transit systems, except for MARC, and the stuff out in Baltimore (all run by MTA/MDOT).

Feel free to let any of us know if you have questions.

Welcome! I look forward to trooping with you. I work just on the edge of Silver Spring and there's lots of metro there.

I just arrived at my new house in Silver Spring and I'm still in the process of unpacking, but it looks like all of my costumes made it out here in one piece. I decided not to bring Juhani, Queen Talia, or my Battle Handmaiden, but that still leaves me with four to use this year. I look forward to meeting you all!
