Serge,
I am, and am aware there are dangers, though I'm sure I'm not aware of
all of them, which is why I'm going slowly. :) I'm in Fairfax County,
so it would be good for me to attend that meeting.

I've linked to the data on the wiki (Virginia [1] and Fairfax County
[2]). Please let me know what you find, as I'm still learning the
tools to work with Shapefiles and osm.

Thanks,
-Josh
