Completed this while enjoying the cherry blossoms. There were a LOT of people on the mall today.

Cartridge needs some work. Had to turn my Oregon on and off several times at each site due to crashes. Will send my notes to the author. Very worthwhile excursion. Saw many of our nation's most revered monuments. Great lesson in history.

You can count on about 6+ miles and (with lunch) about 6 hours of walking to complete.

Oh, one more thing. Once you complete it, you don't get a completion code.

[update] Had to drop it down to a 1. Have tried numerous times to get help from author, but no response.
