    I-day and hotel reservations

    Driving from NJ the night before. Staying at the Doubletree. They offer a discount to USNA Parents; but you have to make the reservation over the phone since this is not a choice on the internet. Also made a 2 night reservation for August 7 & 8 thinking this might be PPW; can always cancel.
