    Also, I am pretty certain on the 4MRT in Shirlington (along S. Arlington Mill Dr), one of those stations (and it might be the one closest to Walter Reed) is a pull-up bar or can be used as one.

    Goslings are out! Beware the parents.

    Spotted goslings this morning along the MVT. Only one family grouping, but I would guess more are out there. Time to watch for the over protective parents who like to attack trail users.

    Are the rules "picture" or "photograph"? If the former, I think interpretations like yours should work, especially if someone can vouch for your presence. But I am just watching this game.
