First, here is the general TSA link

Then, Northwest, Continental and ASA fly into Alexandria. You must look at your flight options and then investigate the policies of the particular airline you are flying.

Make your arrangements as a group, and come in together. This is a 'primitive' area, so I would not rent a low slung sports car or anything like that . Get something with some ground clearance.

Peruse some of the other threads on the board--you'll see arrangements being made. Make inquiries with those nice fellers.

Mark you checked luggage clearly, and include labeling inside with your name, and a cell phone number where you can be reached. Include in this note the explanation that items in the luggage are used in living history presentations that include black powder weapons firing, and as such, may have powder residue on them. Give additional lead time at check in to make sure your luggage makes it on the same plane you do. So says my cousin, the Rev War reenactor and TSA trainer---and thus far, both myself and my luggage have made it every time.
