VA Meet & Greet

Calling all Virginia FSJeepers! Lets get together and have a meet and greet. Im fairly new to this site but Ive been around for about a year and I have noticed a lack of activity in the state of Virginia. Judging by the recent posts I notice there is no shortage of VA members here on IFSJA. The numbers are here we just need to get together and share the passion of FSJs. This is a poll to see who all would be interested in a VA meet and greet. If this poll gets a good response I will follow it up with a poll to determine the best time of year in 2012 to plan the event. Thanks for reading and I really hope this gets a warm response. I hope to Meet you all Very soon!

I'm not a VA fsj'er but I would attend assuming it was held closer to Lynchburg than DC.

I would like to get the interest up first. After I know that some people are behind this then we can pick a meeting place and date/time. The poll has been up for a few days and so far its just me and a guy from NC. Not a good look for VA

I think Richmond would be the most logical place to hold a meet and greet in VA. When to have the event is the real question. I think sometime in the spring would be good because its only 6 months away but that is plenty of time to wrangle up some members and nail down a hard date. What do you guys think? is the spring of 2012 a reasonable time frame to start with?

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!
http://www.montebellova.com/

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.

I am a member of a local 4x4 club in Lynchburg, the club runs shoe creek every other month or so. Im interested in organizing some wheeling trips and trail rides but I think a meet and greet would be more appropriate for the first FSJ get together in VA. If you are interested in getting in on an upcoming wheeling trip with myself and a few local buddies shoot me a PM and ill keep you posted. I would love to see more FSJs out on the trail!!

9 people interested so far. Whats do you guys think about the spring of 2012? someone needs to throw a good month out there, or does it need to go to poll. Im leaning towards April but I would like more input before trying to narrow it down that much.

All for Apriil as well. Daylight savings time, days are longer and warmer...

Thanks also for the shoe creek invite. Yeah I guess a meet and greet is probably not the best for first timers but the location is still good I think, and if we had a couple that did want to wheel we could...


Baby steps though...let's set a date first.

well my GW may not be on the road (and i may end up driving my FJ cruiser), but i vote for somewhere in central VA, crabtree falls or crozet...

Crabtree is closest to everyone by virtue of being right smack dab in the middle of the state.

Picking location by virtue of least mean distance worked for Jefferson placing the UVA, why wouldnt it work for our IFSJA, VA meet and greet?

Also why wait till spring? we have the best weather of the year right now.

I understand your reasoning on the location of the meet and greet. As for the timing, waiting till spring will give everyone time to plan ahead. Im open to meet at shoe creek or crozet. its up to yall

Count me in, I'm pretty flexible with times and locations. I would love to meet somewhere that has some wheeling.

I cannot do it right now as I have three boys and our calendar is already full with Boy Scout and sports activities til Thanksgiving.
So I see Crabtree Falls/Shoe Creek and Montebello is only three miles from Crabtree. What I can do is contact both Crabtree and Montebello once we have a date set and see about getting a group rate.

I like Montebello over Crabtree in that there is much more room as far as camping and trailering if that is an option for some jeepers. Also Montebello has gas

I like where this is heading! Im in for a wheeling/camping/m&g. The more aspects of the FSJ hobby we can bring together the more appealing it will be to all who plan on attending. Is everyone happy with april? If so, now we need a weekend! Any weekends not work in april? keep the ideas coming guys, looks like we are making some good progress on this. Thanks for all the input

I'm interested. April sounds good. May even be able to convince the wife to let me take the boys for a "man" weekend. I'm just south of the VA border in currituck so wherever it is I'll be driving a bit. Nothing like the anxiety and excitement of a road trip

April 2012 is the time slot for the meet and greet. Im going to nail that down now because it seems like april works for the majority. April holds a few holidays depending on your religious preference so there are only a couple weekends to play with. Im assuming that Saturday works best for most and because of holidays in the first part of the month the last 2 weekends are looking the best. So how does everyone feel about 4/21 or 4/28?
