@BigChefNy welcome to our online community! I spent a few years in/around the Williamsburg and NoVa areas, which is where I fell in love with backpacking! We've got some active community members where you now are, plus REI stores in both Richmond and VA Beach, not to mention a few around NoVa. Let us know if you discover any great outdoor places to play and don't hesitate to reach out with questions as well!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
