    My daughter will be making the trip alone from Hawaii and will be arriving on the 30th. I am not sure how Plebe's families normally handle this as she can not check into a hotel (not 21). Any idea where she can stay overnight? Thanks in advance.

    There is something in the packet in regards to staying in Bancroft Hall...I remember reading it after going through it a few times. Maybe on the back of the Permit to Report, or on the travel request form.

    hopefulmom....our 2010 girl left several days early ( I think she left on friday before I'Day if I recall correctly ) from San Diego to Maryland. She wisely thought she should give herself a few days mental transistion and weather-transistion. ( to adjust to a more humid climate from our more arid one). I contacted the USNA Maryland Parent's Club and a family not only volunteered to host my girl...they picked her up from the airport, took her sightseeing, took her to church with them ( my girl's request ) and on her early I-day report time got her there in plenty of time. The dear mom then called me to tell me how good my girl looked throughout her Induction time. They had a girl USNA 08, so they were more than happy to be a long-distance mom to another mid-girl.

    So this is another, more personal option. Let me know via private message if you can't find the USNA Maryland Parent's Club information.
