In terms of meeting people in your hometown, I would go with something other than a lair. To be honest it's too much of a freak show. The normal people tap out after a couple of meetings.
Savannah is on my list already, read about it in a Bill Bryson book ;-)
I decided to fly from Boston to Washington, D.C., and then drive on from there. That gives me more time and flexibility to visit and stay in places I might like.
None of the lair guys I contacted showed up anyway, so that took care of its own.
In another thread I read about meetup.com; unfortunately there are no groups in my area.
