    Coming to Chantilly

    I am coming to Chantilly on business for a couple of weeks. I will be doing some sightseeing on the weekends. Is this a friendly area? Is there anything unusual I need to be aware of, other than stay out of DC with a gun?

    While here, watch for lunches and dinners in the area and join the folks putting any of them together.

    Virginia is very gun-friendly and very lenient... the most lenient state in the South for that matter. You should be fine. Hope you enjoy your stay and spend a lot of money while here.

    One little tricky part of Virginia, near the Potomac River that even most residents don't know about. See this page:

    Let me know when you'll be here, and I'll arrange a dinner during that time.

    Hey Tess. If and when you do this, could you consider the area around Fair Lakes/Centreville as well so that you can pickup some folks who may otherwise not come to a dinner in Chantilly? Or the area around the Expo Center, perhaps?

    Think about extending your stay a day, if that's an option. The Nations Gun Show is 11-13 February at the Dulles Expo Center. One of the largest in the US, and worth going to once, anyway.
