kd3pc is on a distinguished road

the worst thing about the potomac, up river from the new bridge, is the sewage treatment plant...depending on which way the wind is blowing and how much overflow is just flowing past...can be pretty blunt....

on the restrictions...they are in place, including security zones, some announced in notice to mariners, some are understood...nothing around the new bridge, national airport, the annacostia station (park police helicopters, White House Comms, Fed helicopter, and path to/from Andrews for the Pres are all there plus a bunch of 3 letter initial ones), or any of the bulk piers for the power plants is a "security zone" per se. But some arm of the local LEOs or Feds will let you know pronto...some are not even announced - you find out first hand..

all the best in what you decide.
