Virginia 4x4 Trail Reports

Big Dogs Main Jambo
For three weekends a year, BIG DOG Productions opens up 3,500 acres of private land near Winchester, Virginia, to licensed 4-wheel drive vehicles. The sixth annual Main Jambo saw the biggest participant turn out for a BIG DOGS event, with over 170 registered vehicles. Challenging trails were available for all levels of wheelers, from mild to highly challenging. A Maryland based company, BIG DOG Productions negotiates with private land owners to provide increased four-wheeling opportunities.
East Coast 4Runner Jamboree 2001
The East Coast 4Runner Jamboree (EC4RJ) evolved from a discussion on the 4x4Wire Toyota SUV TrailTalk board. The idea born, planning began in earnest with several locations tossed around until the George Washington National Forest - Dry River District outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia was identified as the most suitable. The 4Runner contingent really turned out en masse, with vehicles ranging from a completely stock 2001 to highly modified 1st generation 4Runners, all ready for a weekend of wheeling and camaraderie.
George Washington National Forest
The George Washington National Forest (GWNF) was the destination for several people from the 4x4Wire TrailTalk Forums on the weekend of March 2nd and 3rd, 2001. In all, 16 vehicles participated, with people from New York, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina to run Second Mountain, Gauley Ridge, and Old Long Run Road trails.
West Virginia Charity Event
The West Virginia Off Road Charity Event was a fund raiser for the Fayette Toy Fund and drew vehicles from several states, including Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, Kentucky, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Vehicles ranged from mildly lifted to well built, and the trails reflected such. The Fayette Toy Fund has been helping underprivileged kids acquire toys since 1981.
