Overland expo is not far from that
Expo starts tomorrow for those that bought weekend camping passes. Lots of us from this area will be attending and a few of us are leaving early Thursday morning. Roof Top Tent Rally is next Fri through Sun. Both absolutely worth attending, especially if you’re in this area-it’s so close!

Did some axle work, prepped and painted. Used an hvlp sprayer and got a little too heavy on the coat, but I'm not trying to go for perfect so i think it'll be alright. Just help with some protection from the salt and chemicals in the winter. I used por15 degreaser and metal prep, then por15 paint that converts rust.20191012_124314.jpg20191013_162703.jpg

Welcome! A few of us are in Fredericksburg, so you're not that far out.
Oh cool. I'm a long time TW user I see you have a T4R. We had started a whole group for that area but not much happens. Where and how often does this group have meets or any other activities. I may go bac a fw pages and read through them but not 94 pages LOL. I'm hoping to find some folks that enjoy working on their vehicles and can contribute.

Welcome to OB! I’m in Stafford so not far at all. Hopefully we can get a few of the guys together soon so we can all meet!

Welcome Casper.

I’m outta Richmond, and follow this group. There is a little more activity here than in other threads.

I’ve been out with a few of them for day runs... Good people here.

Hi all! I am a neewbie here I just joined Saturday at the Overland Expo. I am in Culpeper Va, which is probably like no man's land here. I'm kinda wondering if I'm in the right place or is there a more local thread for me to be in?
Hey Casper! This is probably the most local thread .... but be sure to also check out the Rally Points, there is a monthly meetup in Roanoke, VA.

NOVA OB,
I figured I’d start with a post here since it’s the most checked area of OB for members local to NOVA.

A few of us are planning a trip beginning here in NOVA and going to the end of the Trans-Taiga in northern Quebec and back. For those who do not know, the Trans Taiga is a 666 kilometer dirt road ending in the most remote place anywhere in North America. We are planning the trip for the end of Sept/early October of 2020, during a small window between the end of black fly/mosquito season and the snow season.We figure it’s a four day trip journeying up to Northern Quebec, two to four days on the Trans Taiga itself, and then another four days to get home. While the trip is not technical (heavy rock crawling, deep mud, etc), it is extremely remote, so anyone considering going should have a reliable rig, be extremely well prepared and completely self sufficient. With that said, we are hoping for a group of 4-6 rigs, so that we can team up and make the trip as fun and as successful as possible. If you are interested, please let me know and we can discuss it further. Hit me here, PM me, or hit me on my mobile - 404-680-2318. Cheers!
