New to the area

I'm going to be moving to Williamsburg from IL soon and I want to find a Jeep club or group out there. Is anyone in the area know of any? Someone gave me a link to this website(http://www.mpjai.com/vbulletin/index.php) and it says im forbidden lol

Also since I've never hit the trails out there, I'd like to see what Virginia has to offer soon

I'll be getting out there Oct 22 so maybe a week or so after that I'd want to meet up with some fellow jeepers to get to know the area.

in hampton roads theres nothing legal unless you know someone with private land, obx is fun to drive on the beach, if you go to corolla theres some trails and all but the closes rocks will be up in the mountains atleast 3 hours away. shoe creek is the closest, if you run 75-80 mph the whole way it takes right at 2.5 hours but we generally make it 3.5, then theres the gwnf about 4-4.5 hours, also crozet theres a few other good spots up there but it wont be an everyday trip kind of deal around here
