    I just picked up a 96 with 260k, gonna put some miles on it so I know I can trust it on a drive down there. After that, I'll be down there fishing as much as possible.

    Ive got a 96 as well. 213K. Since I dont know anyone else with a 96, just out of curiosity, do you have a 12v outlet in your trunk? I dont. I assume the 96 came without. My 98 had one.

    I don't believe so. I'll double check. My old Forester had one, but I actually never used it. Just recently bought a small Duracell power converter from Target so I can run from either the cigarette lighter or connect to the battery.

    Anyone know of some spots to do some off-roading that's kind of local?

    Anyone ever been to Portsmouth Island NC? I'm thinking of planning a fishing/camping trip out there later this summer.

    The thread isn't too old. LOL Checking in from Chantilly, VA. There seems to be a lot of folks from surrounding areas of NOVA. It would be fun to a run to Peters Mill. I went a few years back with my F150 (sadly deaceased now).

    They graded out Peters Mill a few years ago...it's like driving on a dirt road now for the most part. :-(

    If folks haven't been to the Flagpole Knob/Union Springs area outside of Harrisonburg and are in NOVA, that spot is worth checking out. It is about 3 hours from the Fairfax County Courthouse according to google. While it is by no means extreme, it will give you an idea how capable your 4R is. I did it in my 08 FJ with stock highway tires and no lift (although to be honest it was a ton less stressful once a lift and real tires went on, lol).

    Green ridge is open unless it's a storm or storm damage. Sections can get closed, but for the majority its open.

    Just throwing this out there, I recently came across a Facebook group in RVA for Toyota trucks and 4Runners. There are frequent trips by members to various locations:

    Just throwing a little more out there for the VA folks. This past weekend we went to Flagpole Knob in GWNF. What a freakin' blast!
    I am still totally amazed at what these trucks can do with little to no modification.
