Hello, I am new to slugging. Please forgive the newbie. I'm trying to figure this all out. I live in Fredericksburg. The closest Commuter lot is Route 17 for me. However my destination is to 2900 S Quincy, Shirlington Tower, I don't know how this works besides what I have read. Any help would greatly appreciated. I plan to drive at first and probably switch to riding every now and then. Again any info on the best route or procedures for this would be extremely helpful.

The area that you are going to in Shirlington  is not really a Slug point destination. If you drive then you probably want to pickup for the Pentagon and then back track to your final destination.
If/when you decide to ride then you probably have to figure out if you can get a bus to go there.

I drive in from Woodbridge. My route is to drop people off along 14, then I continued to Capitol Heights. I reverse on the way home, Capitol Heights, the Commerce building, to Horner or Hechinger in Woodbridge.

Keith is right. If you could take a group to Pentagon, and backtrack the way home, you might put a few more miles on, but you'll save about 30 minutes a day. I save at least 15 minutes, but it's less miles for me and better gas.

If not, keep working on a group, and see if y'all can pull a rotation on driving. Any, if someone takes a day off, then plan on grabbing a Pentagon rider or 2.
