Exclamation 16th VA4WDA Annual at Lovingston VA Sept 19,20

Hey folks! Thought I would pass along this opportunity to wheel on the private property of Oak Ridge Estates, near Lovingston, VA. This is the site where numerous Camp Jeeps and Jeep Jamborees have been held also. This will be our 3rd time attending the Annual, and my 5th time wheelin' at Oak Ridge. Awesome trails, people, and food. Totally doable in a stock Jeep as there are bypasses. It's in Shipman, just South of Lovingston off 29N. It's $100.00 for vehicle and driver and a can of chili. You can purchase extra meal tickets for $5 each. Trust me, if you can make it you won't regret it. I would suggest that you get the Registration in as soon as you can, as even though registration closes Sept 1, it always ends before that, as they only take 250 vehicles. Tent camping is available as part of the charge, at the Main Site, but as it stands right now, no motor homes, campers or pop ups. There will be alternative sites available.

Sweet!

I'm going to try to get registered. I don't belong to the club or know anyone in it. Are they pretty friendly to "outsiders"?

Do you know how many spots are left?

I'm pretty excited since there was no camp jeep this year. What's the latest on camping info?

The Virginia 4 Wheel Drive Association is a group that's comprised of many groups in Virginia, with the Annual hosted by one of the those groups, Tidewater Four Wheelers. Everyone that we've met the 3 times that we have attended has been cool. I think you'll have a great time.

As of today 110 have registered, with 140 spots left.

No change regarding the camping yet. It's being worked on, but may not be able to be changed. You could try to contact Lake Nelson Campground, it's the closest campground that allows campers. I'm told that the lady that runs it is gracious, but hard to get hold of, call late at night.

Let me know when you send in your registration and I'll PM you the confirmation link, that way you'll know that you made it.

Be well,
Richard

It's filling fast. I wouldn't wait. You might email Jesse Shnell (think I spelled it correctly) and see if you can register with the ability to get a refund if you can't get time off. There will end up being a list of "alternates" who can fill vacancies.

The Annual is an awesome event.. waaaaay friendly.

You should have fun no matter what line you get in. The important thing is to get in the same line both days. If you jump around, you run the risk of doing the same trails 2 days in a row.

I'm currently building a little green CJ5 that will make it's debut at the Annual Run. I hope it works well so I'm not "that guy" out on the trail!!

The trails are designed so that a "stocker" can make it thru. Might have to take a couple bypasses but no big deal. Any Jeep will work.. and you'll have a great time.. guarantee it.

Sweet man, Ive got my check and registration all ready to go, i do want to make it so I can get one foot in the door as far as joining the tidewater fourwheelers goes. I think its something like 3 overnight trips and you can become a member, not sure though... I should have fun though, my jeep is definitely not stock...but im definitely not locked with gears and 35s either! lol. My brother lives in charlottesville, so im hoping I can crash with him and go wheeling fri and sat.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there.
I hope it rains a little before. It's very dry here now.
It will be dusty if no rain.

From C'ville to Oak Ridge is about 40 miles +/-

Tidewater 4Wheelers is a great club. They host the Annual and several other big events here in VA. Good bunch of folks to wheel with. Matter of fact, they just helped out Starr Motors in Suffolk with their big truck show and offroad obstacle course on Saturday. About a half dozen of us from Middle Penn Jeep Assoc went down and ran the obstacle course. Couple of the muddy hill climbs were tough.. full throttle required to get up.

If you're ever up in Newport News on a Saturday, swing by the Dunkin' Donuts on Denbigh/Jefferson Ave at 10am.. our club does our weekly "Coffee Run".. basically we just meet up, drink some coffee, shoot the breeze..etc.

Sounds cool man...I was at the Starr Motors event, it was an awesome set up they had. They did a great job getting the trail together....some of the guys who work at the dealership had mentioned to me prior to the event that the trails would be "impassible", they werent lying were they!? lol. But, yea I think the off road day turned out pretty good. If im ever in Newport News Ill definitely swing by...
