New to the Area

Greetings, Virginians.

I recently relocated from western Washington state to Maryland (just north of DC) and am looking to familiarize myself with the area. I've been active in the Xterra/offroad/overland community for about 5 years now and I want to continue that trend now that I'm back east. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you on the trails and in camp.

Welcome! I'm down further in the state but smack dab in the center of GW and Jefferson Nat'l Forests.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. I joined VAXC on the book of faces and a couple of the regional overland groups. I'm hoping to join in on some trips soon.

If you didn't grow up in the snowy states, be prepared for snow - which means salt and slick roads. I spray the undercarriage once or twice a winter and once early spring if we get snows and road salt is put down. Hopefully you know how your truck handles on ice. I've taken my X skating a few times.

One last recommendation- I assume you're going to Quantico, so put on steel bumpers, get a lift, and enjoy intimidating the Prius, Fiats, and other prickmobiles driving I95 and 495 like its their private driveway. Many times I got behind (and couldn't pass) some millennial d*****bag in the left lane going 40 because he's texting and that was more important than driving safely on one of the busiest and most congested road systems in the country. I wanted to put those cars off of the road like I was doing convoy security in Iraq again.

It'll be later this year before I have the time to do much. Life's pretty busy at the moment but give me a shout and we'll get out and explore some. Are you more into challenging trails or just being outside?

Be ready for slick, tight trails. Just a touch of rain in this red clay and even your M/Ts are slicks if you aren't spinning them hard enough to clean them.

Always test mud holes you're unfamiliar with. They may be 3" of dirty water or 3' of the nastiest gumbo mud you can think of. Never take either for granted either, some "good ol boy" may have chucked it full of fire wood chunks trying to unstick his pickup.

Welcome to the area! I'm in Catonsville, MD. PA has some good off-road/camping spots I've been to. Rausch Creek is a popular one and pretty much a standard it seems for people in the area. Not a bad drive from MD. Unfortunately, we don't have the sweet vast Mountains and trails in our backyard like our western brethren do.
