I don’t live in Colorado, Nevada, Wyoming, etc. so I don’t get the luxury of simple access to prime offroading. I live in Northern Virginia (NOVA) just 5 minutes outside of Washington D.C. Overlanding in this area is packing enough activities and snacks to endure the 3 hour stop-and-go traffic on I-95 on your way to the trail.

Early in my life, being high school, I joined my local fire department in a very rural Virginia town. Here is where I became friends with a guy with a Land Rover Discovery, black in color, roof rack with safari lights, lifted, upgraded wheels, oversized Nittos, steel bumpers, winch, everything….. He also had a 70s Land Rover Series II with plenty of additional options and accessories. It was in this vehicle that he took me to my first Land Rover Rally. This was my first experience with wheeling and I knew at the beginning of that weekend that this was for me. Sadly, I did not have a car at this time, but I was fortunate enough to have parents with a very clean 1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic. Unfortunately for my parents they had a son who was about to get his license and had now had taste for wheeling.

This is a very open blog full of pictures, reviews, articles, etc. If there is anything you want to see in posted contact us and we will look into discussing it.

  1. I love the old cherokees and they make an excelent backbone for an off-road or overlanding rig. I have heard the unibody may need some reinforcing and the running board might benefit from a little bedlinner to keep the rust at bay, but overall a fantastic vehicle. I’ve followed you and can’t wait to hear what you plan to do next. I hear Rausch Creek isn’t too far from northern Virginia.


    1. I absolutely love the square-body Jeep Cherokees. Mine is always going to be a work in progress. You are right, the interior would most definitely benefit from a bedliner treatment. I’ve heard lots of good things about Rausch Creek off-road park. Lots of the 4×4 groups in the D.C area head there for their wheeling fix, looking to do a trip there myself this year.
