Welcome to the forum! There is a good bunch of guys in your area with a ton of knowledge so you might attend one of their prayer meetings on the third Thursday of each month.

Cheers and good luck with the hunt!

Try out the search function (it sucks) type in NoVa Happy Hour and that should get you there. Also check out ROAV (Rover Owners Assoc. of Virginia) It is a first class club full of great people.

Hi, another DC newbie here, checking it to say hello.

I could just cut and paste Tonka2's email: I'm also starting to do my homework for an eventual first-time Land Rover purchase. Thanks for the community.

Tonka2: Where are you? (I'm Arlington). Maybe we can sync up at one of the local events...

Hey prospective DC guys. I live in Logan Circle and picked up an 83 110 back in August. PM me if ya wanna come by, see the truck, get a feel for what ownership (especially of the older trucks) is like.

I'm doing some projects next weekend too.

The Happy Hour event is a great place to come to and see all the different configurations of Defenders. I think the only ones we don't have there are a 110 pickup... (yet)

You can chat with owners, crawl over them and get a good "feel" for what you want to buy to stop the itch. CYA there.

Shawn you just missed one heck of an initiation event with a motor install at a forum members place over the weekend . But, as Craig said, get out to the next Happy Hour and it'll be a good chance to meet the crew and check out the various Rovers.
