Count me in. I live in SW VA but only three hours to Richmond. Another option would be Nelson County just south of Charlottesville. My family and i camp there often. There is a tiny town on top of a mountain called Montebello. They have a campground there that is top notch!
From this campground there is a trail called Shoe Creek. Great trail for FSJ in my opinion....just a thought.
Yes spring time is best at this point.
