    I just purchased the Gotham2

    I expect to get it in the mail next week. I bought it because I don't want to drive in DC at the end of the month when I go for a 3-day trip. I figure I'll pack it, break it out when I get out of Reagan Airport, and use it to tool around between GWU and Bolling AFB. I'll post a bunch of pics and a review when I get back...

    Warning: you're going through some ... less than desirable areas of DC between Bolling and the Mall. After that it's pretty sweet. Here's a suggested route.

    Feijai, see that you enabled the Bicycling map layer. How do you like it?

    HA, thanks! I've lived in some pretty rough places in my life, I'll try try and project a thug-like image.

    I hate it.

    Google doesn't seem to realize that if they've plotted a separated bike path along one side of the street, you can go both ways on the bike path. And through parks etc. they often think there exist only one-way bike paths. It's awful.
