We think we are ready-celebrating DS 18th Birthday today and in a few days we will be in Annapolis telling him goodbye. all the advice we have gotten here has been a life saver. I have a new question----We will be staying aprox 15 mins from USNA on a good day. With a report time of 0800 how soon should we leave the hotel-to arrive i guess at the football stadium to shuttle in. We know we need to be on time which means no less than 15 minutes before his report time. Is our best plan to be at the field by say 7 to allow for traffic etc? also do we carry in a small cooler of some kind with a snack for DS after induction. Everyone says they are starving but to carry it around for hours sounds miserable. suggestions!
