Thumbs up Hello from Virginia

Tom & Sandra from southwest Virginia says HELLO! We live in the blueridge mountains of Virginia 20 miles from Virginia Tech (GO HOKIES)
We are both retired (me 30+ yrs law enforcement and my wife 30+ Agency on Aging) and we recently purchased our first ever Casita trailer. In fact just four weeks ago we went on our first camper trip ever. Thanks for letting us come aboard and we are looking forward to meeting new friends.
Tom & Sandra

Welcome Tom & Sandra,

I'm about 90 miles East of you in Lynchburg. I just bought my FGRV, an '83 Burro, the first week in June. So far, it has only had one outing, to serve as my bedroom and the target shack for a schuetzen match I sponsored near here. In fact, one of my Pulaski friends came and shot with us. I hope to go to several shooting events now that the *@#%* heat has let up a little... it looks like a couple of trips to Winchester for the North-South Skirmish and a couple more schuetzen matches for September and October. I've got a lot of interior work to do this Winter, but can "rough it" with what I have for now. Portable propane stove and large cooler will do until the stove top can be installed and a 3-way fridge can be bought and placed in its slot.

Are you thinking of any trips for the sake of just camping with a group of FGRV'ers like maybe the Asheville, NC doings in October?

Froggie

Welcome Tom and Sandra, looks we are picking up quite a few new members from Va. I live near the bay but do most of my fall and winter camping west of Stanton and Harrisonburg. I wanted to take a trip down the Blue Ridge PW this summer but like Froggie said it was too **** hot. Hope to meet you someday.

There's a nice little state-owned campground up at the Peaks of Otter, right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Maybe we could organize a Virginia FGRV-in for us and surrounding areas. We don't have to let other states have ALL the fun! Should I start looking into what would be involved in putting something like that together?

Not a bad idea Froggie. Late April or early May would sure be a good time. I was think some where in the Shenandoah Valley area. Tom

Welcome

We've been to your area many times, both our boys are VT graduates, definitely one of the most beautiful campuses in America . As well we celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary next Monday. One of our son's has a Casita, the other boy a Scamp.

Hi, Tom! You live in my ancestral stomping grounds - BEAUTIFUL countryside around there. I hope to drag our Casita up there one day...

Hello Norm & Ginney...and you are right. Very few campuses can compare with Virginia Tech. Tom
