i live in NOVA(fairfax to be exact) but spent alot of my pre marriage days in the valley. my buddy lives up at bryce ski resort, and we know alot of people at jmu. my local club does alot of runs in gwnf also.

i cut my teeth on true 4wd trails there. when i built my first true jeep(2004 swb rubicon) i was down there almost every weekend. after they shut down salt shed and gated(sometimes) dictum ridge i stopped going as much.

i really built the xj to wheel at rausch creek thou. i love the rocks, the more technical the better!
