If you haven't fished with a fly rod before then going with a guide is a good idea, especially if you've got a buddy who wants to go and you can split the cost. It is not cheap but the guide will save you the headache of trying to find a place to get in and out of the water, can give you enough ideas to make your next few trips, and will save you the frustration of going out hoping to have a good time and not having any idea what the hell you are doing.

Especially fishing these little spring creeks you may wind up having to roll cast a lot (otherwise you will spend a lot of time trying to get your precious new flies out of the tree branches behind you), and that is one of those things that is a lot easier to do when you can watch somebody who knows what he or she is doing.

Finally, when I first started fishing with flies, I made the mistake of setting out on my own seeking out beautiful pristine new england creeks and ponds with native brook trout, and I didn't catch a god damned thing. Later I made a few outings with my uncle on a little pond full of bluegill. On the still water I could actually see what my casts were doing, and I was fishing little dries like red quills, so I got to have the whole experience of presenting the fly and seeing the fish come up and take it on top. I think it is much more gratifying to bring in a few really dopey fish with hapless technique than to go out and fail to catch any trout. Also a 1/2lb bluegill on a 3wt fly rod feels about like catching a 10lb striper.

After a few of those trips I was having fun again, I made some guided trips out west and didn't make an ass of myself.

Here are my two books I like:


good luck and report back!

When I got treatment for ADHD as an adult, it was as simple as finding a psychiatrist (psychologist? The one more focused on medical treatment than talking about your childhood.) that took my insurance, talking about my issues, and then getting on Ritalin. I think you can even go to your GP for it, which I didn't know at the time. It wasn't a long term fix for me but definitely helped me get it under control to the point that I could manage it without medication and I've been off Ritalin now for almost a decade.

This book was also an enormous help to me. Highly recommended.

Best of luck to you. Getting my ADHD under control was a gigantic turning point in my life.

Billy goat trails are nice and I believe there's a book that has a lot of good suggestions for this area in particular.

My typical stomping grounds that I usually hit after work in the evenings for the sake of going outside are nice little 2 milers at Difficult Run or Scott's Run. Neither of which are too far from the village of Great Falls. Plus you get to see water most of the time and the tree cover's nice. These are by no means challenging hikes, but the views are nice and the trails have many options/ routes.

I've also been looking to find a few new spots around the area. Do you have any particular hikes you could recommend to an avid trailblazer?

Meneed - what do you want to do in Cybersecurity? What is your current work experience? What high-level things are you good at? What's your personality like?

There are MANY different roles and career paths in "Cybersecurity". I'd suggest talking to people in the field, find out what they actually do, and figure out what sort of work you gravitate toward the most. Some disciplines are highly technical - others are less so. Figure out where you want to go before you start.

I recommend picking up a copy of this book - I've shared this with interns and some past IT colleagues who were looking to get into infosec. Easily digestible, broad but not deep, gives you a good intro and frame of reference for stepping into deeper water.

For those interested, there's a great book describing why this area is home to so much.

Internet Alley: High Technology in Tysons Corner, 1945--2005

Don't be fooled by the title, a lot in there pertains to Ashburn as well.

Sorry to hear about your hit and run. Dashcam or any witnesses?

If you don't already have a dashcam, one of the relatively inexpensive and popular models SpyTec A119 is currently $71.96 on Amazon w/ Prime. You sacrifice a cigarette lighter port for peace of mind and possible evidence for police/insurance!

Even having a dashcam makes you a safer driver, because you subconsciously know that your driving is being recorded so you're less likely to speed or make aggressive lane changes.

u/KingYesKing · 7 pointsr/nova

I got the Rexing V1, it's pretty awesome.

u/Qlanger · 2 pointsr/nova

The A119 is a great buy that runs at 1440p resolution. Just buy a 64gb or at least a 32gb card and it will autowrite over the old video as needed.

I biffed at least one fact, as /u/jw12321 pointed out. It wasn't Jeffords' seat -- Jeffords didn't retire until 2007. I should have remembered that since I remember getting his book "My Declaration of Independence" signed and that was his book about leaving the Republican party in 2001. For regional points, I went to the book signing at the Barnes & Noble in DuPont Circle with a friend who was staffing for Leahy.

The Senate seat that McMullen was gunning for was Leahy's. Which my memory didn't even bother thinking of because that's fucking ludicrous given Leahy's popularity and incumbency. It made more sense to me that he'd run for an empty senate seat.

Goes to show how colossally stupid McMullen was. He horribly misjudged Vermont and Vermonters and blew over $220k of his own money on that race. And more googling turns up that he kept trying to run for office in and for Vermont... winning an uncontested GOP primary to go against Leahy again (lost; 24.7% to Leahy's 70.5%) and running for AG (lost; 33.3% to the incumbent's 57.9%).

Vermont doesn't like carpetbaggers.

Be aware you will need to buy the SD card for this

I own this and its great, I did have to order another sticky pad because the one they gave you didnt hold well during the hot summers

u/Dthdlr · 34 pointsr/nova

Well the part itself is about $15.00 but you have to be sure it’s a direct compatible replacement (I think this one is but I’d have to see all of the numbers on yours better).

But what you really paid for was:

  1. Someone who knew how to diagnose the problem properly;

  2. Someone who had the part on hand RIGHT NOW

  3. Someone willing to come out and do this on a Saturday.

    It seems a bit high, but it’s been years since I had to have the capacitor replaced on my system. Thought it was high then too as it does seem a lot for the inexpensive part.

    But then if you paid for a hotel room while you waited for the part etc etc etc.

I use this:

Tucked away behind my rear view mirror and automatically turns on when electronics turn on in my car. I have it plugged into USB though I might plug it into a fuse. I never think about it until I want to grab a video off of it.

/r/dashcam has good suggestions.

Page 62 of Falls Church: A Virginia Village Revisited

"A section of the town south of the thoroughfare then known as the Falls Church and Fairfax Courthouse Road was by a Virginia Act of Assembly returned to the jurisdiction of Fairfax County. This amendment, passed in 1887, directed the transfer of the boundary of the section of land then called "the colored settlement" to outside the corporate limits of the town.23 Since 26 percent of the black males voted Republican the boundary change gerrymandered the territory in favor of the remaining Town voters who were mainly Democrats.24"

Ref 23 is the law
Ref 24 is "Stepping Stones on the Trail Through Falls Church", Maurice Terman 1995

The telco/colo footprint in NoVa is the legacy of MAE-East and the dot com boom.

It's arguable that the federal government and contractors also drove some percentage of that growth, but it's self sustaining now. AWS East isn't dependent on federal subsidies.

get a guidebook to the area, probably this one, though i haven't looked at it personally. But if it's anything like every other guidebook, it'll have some photos of each bouldering area, with lines drawn onto it showing each route and difficulty.

u/Dobard · 2 pointsr/nova

This book was written by a lady who lives in Loudoun. Might be up your alley.

I currently have an A119. I would recommend the a118, a119, and a119s, the main difference between them being resolution. If you end up with of those and get the gps unit, do yourself a favor and power the main unit not the gps unit. Mine had issues when I powered it through the gps, and it corrupted my videos because it kept boot looping. Moved the cable to the camera itself, and no more bootloop.

Also be sure to pick up a "high endurance" micro sd, they really are better than a regular micro sd for this purpose.

Edit: Camera sample footage. The audio was lost from corruption, but I've fixed that problem now.

Invest in these fam

I use this a lot in the last 4 years with room mates at uni. Sleep like a baby through basketball ceiling neighbors and next door neighbor rough sex. No problems.

Trust me, I know about irritating neighbor noise, I use to think headphones or earbuds were adequate to block noise. They are not, ear plugs is the way.

Order two, one for the front, one for the back. Seriously. I was rear ended near Arlington Cemetery and the guy drove off. Got his plates off of the tape and subsequently made his life hell.

>you can't refuse a sobriety test which may involve you speaking without being arrested.

AFAIK, in most states as long as it's an otherwise uneventful traffic stop (i.e., not a crash) you can refuse a roadside Preliminary Breath Test (little handheld box) and field sobriety tests (ABCs, walk-and-turn, etc.). All those do is give the police evidence and/or probable cause to arrest you. In Virginia, if you refuse a test at the station (breath - Intoxilyzer - big typewriter-looking thing with tube; blood draw, etc.) without a valid reason (i.e., medical) you will be charged with Unreasonable Refusal, one of several drunk driving charges.

Regarding searches and questions, unless your speech will give something away (i.e., your drunken state), these are lines you should use:

-I don't consent to any searches.
-I assert my Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and to not answer that question.

ALWAYS be polite. Police have many ways they can make life very stupid for you if you piss them off. You can fight the charges later.
