    USAF Moving to Meade

    Greetings!
    I recently found out I am PCS'ing to Ft Meade, MD in a few months. Any advice on the base, the area or Jeeping in the area? Thanks for the help!

    Nice base, small but there is a lot to see and do in the area between Washington D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis. Not much Jeeping in the area that I know of, but if you head over to the Eastern Shore, up into PA or Western MD there should be some.

    There is some wheeling down in VA also, not too far to travel if your looking for a weekend run. When im in the states i try to set up a run atleast every couple months to George Washington Nat'l Forest. Or atleast run up to Rausch Creek.

    My best advice for you.... find a place to live as close to Meade as possible. DC area traffic is horrible.
    Lots of places to wheel within a 3 hr drive, not many are very hardcore though.

    I appreciate all the advice! As far as living accomodations, we are planning to stay on base. Safer and no traffic going to work!

    I'm just a stones throw from you in College Park. My advice, stay away from PG County.

    Let me know if you guys need anything though. I was born and raised here

    There are multiple clubs in the NOVA (Northern VA) area that you can get into. www.beltway4wd.com and www.novajeepers.com are a couple in addition to the MJ club. There are more than that but these are the closest clubs near Ft. Meade that I know of.

    I'm in NOVA so hit me up when you get here and we'll have a Meet and Greet for ya.
    NOTE: I DO NOT ENDORSE MOUNTAIN VALLEY CUSTOMS (MVC) FOR ANY 4x4 MODIFICATIONS - PM ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS WHY!

    (To those who wonder, I am NOT the club founder, this has been my screen name for over 10 yrs on all other forums and ironically this site is called "Military Jeepers"......contact miljeep for forum related questions)
