Greetings and salutations.  The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.

But I digest.  Names Dan, though on the Facebooks you will see me as Finn MacCumhaill. I'm on most of the JK forums, JKOwners, JKFreaks, JK-Forum as finnd1.  As with Mr Will, I was directed here by Brad Boyd after I started a thread on DMVJeepers about cleaning up the fire road on the reddish knob side to get to Flagpole.  My Step father has told me it is no longer passable to normal sedans and that keeps his group from being able to get up there and enjoy the views and toss radio waves around th world.

Please allow me to introduce myself.
I'm a man of wealth and taste...

I lied, not wealthy (I have a Jeep, HELLO!) and I have neither taste nor tact.

My name is Jason, I drive a 2009 (St. Louis) Blue(s) Wrangler.  I hang with the folks at MPJAI and have a blast going out on runs.

Hey everyone! My name is Paul and I'm a member of Middle Peninsula Jeep Association, Inc. (MPJAI) And of course, VA4WDA! Looking forward to chatting it up with everyone on the VA4WDA forum! I have to say, I love the idea of interacting with other 4 wheel enthusiasts from other VA clubs!

I’m Jim Link and I recently joined the VA4WDA because my family and I recently moved from the great offroading state of Arizona to Fredericksburg, Virginia.  In Arizona I was a “special project” committee member and had previously held the position of Vice President of the local club, the Cochise County Range Riders.  I was also a member of AZ State 4WD Associations and clubs, served on local land use boards, as well as worked closely with the local Coronado National Forest Rangers Office to help insure continued use of open land and trails here in Arizona.  My wife, Colleen and I were very active and generally went offroading at least twice a month.  Last year we did 18 trails plus eight additional events such as trail clean ups, trail repairs, toys for tots, BBQ’s etc..  Of those 18 trails we led 8 of those runs.  Most of the time I drive, but Colleen does put down the camera and drive too...

We currently wheel my daily driven 2011, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a 4 inch frankenlift which includes; Teraflex upper and lower control arms, Synergy track bars, drag link, and tie rod, 35” Cooper STT Pro tires, 4.88 gears, Eaton front E-locker and rebuilt (w/ modified disc pack) trac-lok rear limited slip diffs, JCR dagger front bumper, AEV rear bumper, 12,000 lbs winch, sliders, Artec cross member, and front axle truss and armor kit, a diablo sport to flash the speedometer and to monitor temps.  I am sure there are a few other mods that are slipping my mind…

Rather than attach photos yet, here is a url/link to a photo album that shows our Jeep and some of the trails we've done:

Another newbie, my name's Duncan. I'm new to the off-roading scene and am in the process of moving to Richmond, VA so decided to join up for some advice. Thanks.

Hey all, just bought my first jeep last week. 2013 Wrangler JKU. I've seen y'all on Saturday mornings since I live right by there and hope to stop by sometime. I'll be needing a lot of help/advice on what to do to my jeep. Most likely won't take it on too many trails, but plan on taking it to OBX a lot this summer to surf and surf fish. Anyone know who I can take my jeep to to get an undercoating put on to protect it? Thanks!
