I think I am in good shape for OLPC DC. I have a 10x10 foot pop-open canopy
and two folding chairs to go with the table provided by TPFF. I'll have
battery packs and solar panels to power three XOs as well as some of the
other accessories. And I am bringing the two Xantrex batteries, but folks
will have to bring their own laptop car power adapters if they want to tap
my power packs.

I'm driving from Wheaton, MD with all my stuff.

Post event meeting sounds great. I'm not sure what I will be up to after the
event itself tho.
