Maryland / Gettysburg / Washington D.C. Trip 2022

We are in the process of planning out all the details of our Baltimore, Gettysburg, Washington D.C. Trip. When we get to D.C., we will be renting a beautiful home that is either 6000 or 8000 square feet. Everyone will need to bring their own flashlight for the most epic games of Flashlight Tag hosted by Billy.
(all lights in the house will be turned off for pitch black game play!)

NOTE: This itinerary is subject to change as we finalize all the details.
