I'm in Lorton, been pretty busy the last couple of months and home improvement is eating up my weekends, but I'm technically a Region Rep on here for MD...I will likely try to plan some meet ups in the summer. Retiring from the Coast Guard and going to do the Trans American Trail (TAT) for two months starting the end of next month...once I am back and settled into the new job, I hope to be more active. Unfortunately for local meet ups and stuff, this forum hasn't been too active. It would be nice to change it but it will take some work. There is an ongoing meetup in MD (see a post or two above yours) and there are a couple of other groups that are pretty active. You can look for MORE (Maryland Off-road Enthusiasts) on Facebook as well as Overland Bound East on Facebook too. Peter's Mill Run is a pretty cool and fun trail that is about 2 hours from us. You need to purchase a pass at a local gas station and they are probably just about ready to reopen for the season. There is a place called the watershed in Frederick, MD that I hear a lot of guys in MORE talk about, but I have never been. I actually grew up in Hagerstown, MD right next door to Frederick and never heard of it until recently, but there are groups there every weekend. Lots of other places within 3-4 hrs from us. Welcome to the fourm and hope to see you with a badge number soon!
