Hey @BigChefNy.

 

Welcome to Virginia!! I'm not sure what part of VA you are located, but there is much to do hiking/camping wise.  I've been here for 18 years now.  I've hiked a lot of the State Parks (23 to be exact).  There are so many good ones (Grayson Highlands, James River, Fairy Stone); just to name a few.

There are several of us here that can offer some "local" assistance if you need.   Phil (@Philreedshikes)   has some awesome info and does a lot of hiking/camping.  I've not been able to go out with Phil yet.  Hopefully, 2021 will let me do so!

I'm in the Richmond area.  If you want a hiking/camping buddy, send me a message!!!
