I second Irwin's advice - get hotel rooms as soon as you possibly can. There has been a crunch recently, including the Dulles airport hotels. Do not stay in Washington, DC, unless you know what you are doing. Also, the Metro (subway) doesn't stop at Reston Town Center (the NANOG venue) or anywhere nearby. On the bright side, Reston Town Center is very nice and has lots of places to eat and shop. It is also convenient to the offices of a half dozen carriers on Sunrise Valley Drive, like AOL, Nextel, Sprint, France Telecom, Verizon, Aleron, and many others. Its a good choice. - Dan
