The first family will leave Saturday, spending the night at the countryside presidential retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains, and return Sunday.
Asked whether the president is feeling cooped up in the White House, Gibbs jokingly told White House reporters that Obama is a “restless soul,” and “his idea of a crazy day is to take a long walk.”
The Maryland compound, known for its solitude and tranquility, consists of several recreational cabins connected by walking paths.
