FYI: Supershuttle from BWI to Alexandria VA is $35 according to the
supershuttle operator.  Cheaper for more than one person.  We might be
able to get group discounts as well...

There are also limos for about $60/car (4 people).

I've updated the GroupMind site, so that if folks want to coordinate limo
rides, room sharing, etc., it shouldn't be too hard:
