    We'll have to meet up some time and I'll take you to some of the local wheeling spots. Big Boys is just a few miles north of Harrisonburg. When do classes start there?

    Va. Beach is a long way from Harrisonburg. Big Boys is alot of fun, but I don't think I would drive that far.

    I like driving it. I have an 05 Mazda 6s and between the 2, I would rather drive the Blazer around. Just drove about 200 miles for the hell of it. I havent been wheelin in over 5 years so it is worth it to me. I might go do something else this weekend but not sure. I really want to just hit up a trail, find a good camping spot on a river or something and relax for a couple days but I dont know where to go.

    What would be fun would be to come up on Friday evening or Saturday morning and camp out in the George Washington National Forest and do some wheeling then head over to big boys on Sunday. If you look at a map of Harrisonburg find Rt 33 west. Follow that road till you get up in the mountains. There are all kinds of trails of off Rt 33. Couple of lakes up there. The river is probaly real low since we haven't had much rain. Lots of out of the way camping spots. Let me know if you need anymore directions I can hook you up.

    If you do a search in the lounge for new member intro under my member name there are some pictures of me there on page three and four. Looks like you had fun. You ought to come up in the fall when the leaves change and we'll go wheeling up in the mountains.

    Not much special about it yet. Just got 4" Superlift, 35" Pro Comp MTs, FastTrac top, stock 10 bolts for a couple months. All my money has been spent on motor. Got a healthy little 350 under the hood with Edelbrock heads, intake, cam, and headers. Also installed all new U-joints, radiator, electric fans, tranny cooler recently. Getting some custom bumpers built right now and will be reenlisting in a month. With my bonus I plan on getting a lot done including 14ff rear, a built 700r4 since mine is dying, and interior at least.

    Moving from VA in December and heading to Florida. Need to get it all done before then.

    It takes a couple months to get. This is the black denim one with 3 windows. They will put the windows in the corner if you dont tell them not to.
