Hey guys, I was browsing the forums and saw what a huge response the A.Neters from Chicagoland thread got so I figured why not try one for the Washington D.C. area. So where are you checking in from?

Checking in from Alexandria,VA

I wish UA flew mainline to MYR, that way you wouldn't be stuck in a smelly Saturn for 12 hours.

Falls Church is pretty nice. I just stayed with my buddy for a long weekend in Reston, VA. It's about 5 miles east of IAD.

Woodbridge, VA (right next to Alexandria, VA) right now. Moved back here from Hagerstown, MD about two months ago. I have to say, I didn't know there were so many a.netters in this area.

Let's see - Washington DC area.

Relative to DC in the regional sense, I have no business in this thread.

Relative to DC in the global sense, Chesapeake, VA - about 200 miles away.

My dad is from southside Chicago and a HUGE White Sox fan. So I followed the team ever since he was working at the Pentagon in the early 90s.
