Suggestion:
Go to mapquest and put in your school address and then the address of the Treasury Department --
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20220.

See how many miles you are away from the ducks. Then figure out how many days it would take you to drive to see the ducks.

I am in Corona, CA and I am
39 hours, 50 minutes away or 2632.17 miles. If I left right now -- 4/16 at 5:58pm, I could be there by 10am Monday morning!!

I just saw on ABC news that they are
starting to put up chicken-type wire around the duck area so that the ducklings can't slip through the barrier. Looks like we are getting close!!! <4/26/2005>

This Washington Post article isn't about our duck, but another duck, in 2003, who walked her babies in DC.
