Yeah, I'm sure it's less than convienent for someone. However mapquest says it's only 28 miles from DC. That's why I offered to pay.

So anyone in the DC area, I've got $75 for ya for your time, if you can help me out.

cool, thanks
there's a dude with a busted head in sterling. He's unwilling to ship.

I need some junk out of that busted head to put into my head. DHL will ship the whole thing for like $35 or so.

That 19 miles looks like a killer.

get his address. I'll call dan and see if he can grab it this week. i gotta meet up with him this weekend and help him tune a bit.



here's how close I used to be: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...2135&z=12&om=1


if Dan flakes out, i know someone in Ashburn (just west) that cna probably get too.


but ben you fail to realize, 17miles equal 17 hours of a drive.

Well I live next to a UPS store and I might be able to figure out how to get the **** if dan can't.. but shipping DHL isnt really easy since the nearest one is like in chantilly or something. So you'd most likely need to accept UPS.

you're also the smart guy who lives in DC and works in VA.



I was surprised yesterday, i went out at lunch (to meet brad actually) at 12 and I was like the only car on the road. I like this area. my commute is cut in half and I get paid more to boot.

for an extra buck or so, DHL will pick up from you
my DHL facility is about 30 minutes from me, so I've been exploiting that.
