Any of you wonderful land rover fans live in the Charlottesville area? Just relocated here for work and trying to find some new friends since I don't have any...

I believe there are a handful of Rover guys down that way but if you are up for a little ride, there is a large contingent in NoVa. Personally I am in Haymarket which is about 1-1/2ish hours north of you

I'm here. I work at Northrop Grumman right on 29 but live in Scottsville. I work with 3 rover guys and lots more around.

Chuck, that's cool you're a little closer...you may have a more "captive" audience with us VA guys if you're still planning to sell some cool trucks!

I was just down in the Charlottesville area for work the other day, I'll keep you posted if I get down that way again. Took the back roads there from Fredericksburg, it was a damn scenic ride.

I am in Crozet just west of the city. Best Pizza in the universe, and our own brewery. Where did you land in Cville?

Sweet, it looks like I have some Rover neighbors... To answer all questions, I'm just outside of downtown off Avon street. And don't worry, I have a couple super cool imports on the way in now do stay tuned!

I've been very fortunate to live in the NoVA area and get to know the wonderful owners up here.

If it's not too far out of the way, hopefully one day you can make it up to Alexandria for a Happy Hour!

Where at on Avon? We drop our daughter off at Lake Reynovia every morning for daycare and take that into town to drop my wife off at UVA.

There's a guy in your neighborhood with a black ST 90. I wish our realtor had showed us Mill Creek South, we would have chosen that area too.

Mike McCaig has a black 90 and works not too far from there I think? He lives in Buckingham.

If it was Pastel Green it's my co-worker. He drove his today. There are at least 10-15 Series trucks in the area that I can immediately think of, handful of D90's and 1 or 2 110's.

Chuck - welcome to the Commonweath. I'm just below Scottsville and I do have a black ST 90 that makes it up that way now and then but I think there is another one in C'ville. Sounds like we may have to get a pub meet going...

It was green so probably the same one. As for a pub meet, I like my fluids and have heard there are some great spots here so I am in.
