I currently live in DC and am moving to NC on August 13th. I am planning to purchase a new car at some point in the next two months. Ideally, it would be before the move because that means a safer and roomier ride down. But I can't figure out if we might have to pay a bunch of fees twice - and can't get a straight answer from dealers. [mi] [more inside]
Mr. Pterodactyl and I have realized we enjoy trying and learning new things together. We especially like it if we can take a short lesson or a few short lessons first. What are some (not outrageously expensive) things we could try? [more inside]

Do you have any secret spots within an hour or so of Baltimore that you want to share with the entirety of the internets? Unlike previous AskMes, I don't want to go swimming, or deal with a billion tourists. I just want to go read a good book near the water for a day (ideally on a quiet beach, or in a park near a beach).
I have a ten-year-old boy staying with me for the next month in a Maryland suburb of DC. I would love to hear any and all suggestions for activities in the DC area (especially if anyone knows about any kind of baseball day camp or one day programs, anything baseball related). We have been having fun exploring the area but new ideas would be awesome. Thank you.
Looking for a rustic wedding venue in the DC/Virginia/MD (and potentially WV) region where the soon-to-be Mrs. Oneironaut and I can take over for the whole weekend, roast whole lambs, have a county fair atmosphere, and have the music and dancing go all night. We want to be able to control the space, have a house and potentially a few cabins available, and be within 30 minutes of a town with hotels. Any leads appreciated! And, this question is similar to this one, but we're anticipating more like 150 people, and don't need to be within an hour of the airport.
What are the best "hidden gems" for hiking around DC/Maryland? [more inside]
I live in DC and have just had a great weekend away, camping down near Virginia Beach. Now I want to plan another couple of camping weekends this summer but I'm not keen on the cost of renting a car to do so. Does anyone know of any campgrounds in DC/Virginia/Maryland that are accessible from DC via public transport?

Where can I procure Yuengling in cans at room temperature in Arlington, VA? (Failing that, in DC, along I-81 between Arlington and Abingdon, or along the DC to WV route of I-270 to I-70 to I-68 in Maryland?) [more inside]
We've a gallon of Rebel Yell, a tupperware of pesto pasta, and 200 pages to go. But where to? Where in the DC area can we get away from people on Memorial Day weekend for cheap? [more inside]
I'm looking for extremely primitive beach camping sites (preferably on the Chesapeake) in the DC/MD/VA area. I'm talking about places with no running water, no bathrooms, nothing but nature for miles around. Assateague Island's backcountry camping sites are a perfect example of what I'm looking for. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I just passed MA and am considering a move to DC. I'm looking for advice on which bar exam to potentially sit for in February 2009. [more inside]

Can you recommend a safe DC-area city/neighborhood for a military couple who want to start a family?
My husband is a Marine we will be moving to the DC Area in November. He will be working near the Washington Navy Yard, and his commute is a concern for us. We are planning on starting a family, so living in a safe neighborhood is a priority. We would like to live in a "nicer" neighborhood, preferably quiet and family-friendly. We would like to spend about $1,600/month on rent, but would be willing to spend as much as $1,850 to get what we want. [more inside]
Looking for a moderately difficult circuit hike within a 2 hours drive from DC for a weekend backpacking trip. [more inside]
My employment agreement specifies a mutual notice-giving of 30 days between myself and an employer should either of us wish me to move on, but Virginia is an at-will state. How enforceable is the agreement from either direction? I fear that my employer is putting me at a disadvantage with respect to my moving on (It's hard to find potential future employers who will accept 30 days' delay on the start date) that it might end up they won't be held accountable to if they should decide to give me the air. How do I find out if this agreement is at all enforceable? [more inside]
