Mar 2011

According to the ROAV website, MAR will be held September 29th through October 2nd at the same location as last year, Willow Hill Farm in Buckingham County, VA.

I heard this location sucked. Can anyone comment on that?

Who is going?

I read a couple weeks ago that they plan on expanding the trails there. I have an un-modified rover and found that there was little for me to do last year and the heavily modified guys where disapointed as well. I have talked to some friends up here in NY and NJ and they are hesitant to go.

Most likely I will attend because I have a business trip in Quantico the few days prior...

We go for the comeradery and the camping with people of like interests. But it would be nice if there was better wheeling. Wish they could get a band that you didn't need to be in the next county so it didn't hurt your ears. Can't even talk to the person rightnext to you. There were only two places with any pucker factor.

Crap, I know I am out for MAR already.

------ Follow up post added July 5th, 2011 01:52 PM ------

And to be clear, I don't care where it's at, I'd still go. I go to MAR more for the camping and Rover people versus wheeling.

Not going for the first time in 9 years. Its a great place to hang out with friends and drink beer, but lacking for the family. No trails primitive camping long drive. Hope the weather is great.

I,m going and agree the trails were weak but never thought of MAR as a wheeling event anyway. As long as they get a couple of hundred trucks it doesn't matter where it is I can wheel anytime.

I was very disappointed with the trail options last year and I will only go back if there is no good alternative. I really enjoy being able to hangout with people and look at all the different trucks, but you don't take your lifted locked trail truck to park it in a field. Does anyone know if ROAV got access to anymore property? What was there on the farm isn't really suited to making anymore trails.

I had every intention to go to MAR this year. But no one I know, besides Randy W, is going. Everyone else has made other plans due to the lack of trails. Dr. Aaron's group from the South is out; and a chunk of the Philly group from the North is out. Even a few locals claim they're not going.

Not sure what I'm doing, yet. I have the week off so I'm going some place, just not sure where. As of now it looks like I may be meeting a group in central PA. But I'm not planning on making the Cove happen since John Tackley is no longer in ROAV. If someone else wants to head it up, I'll go to the Cove over anything else.

I'll go if you go. Maybe Sarah would go if Tami was there.

Can't this year. College fraternity 100 year reunion and homecoming is that same weekend. I really wanted to bring down both Rovers and the entire clan this year too. I'll be at Rauch Creek though.

Have went for several years now but last years trails were not worth the long drive from NJ at all... I think the farthest I will ever drive to wheel now is maybe the Cove.. Or Rauch which is not far for us.
