Membership is open to anyone eighteen (18) years or older who wishes to participate, regardless of whether or not their off-highway vehicle is running, or whether you even have a rig right now. We have members who participate only by riding along with friends to help out on the trail. If you or someone you know is interested in obtaining more information about the Off-Camber Crawlers, Inc. Four Wheel Drive Club please feel free to join our mailing list or email the board.
Founded in Jan 1997, The Off-Camber Crawlers, Inc. (OCC) is a group of professional individuals, mostly from Washington, DC and its surrounding areas, who are interested in off-road driving and enjoying the great outdoors with friends.
We meet once a month at 6:30pm typically on the second Sunday of the month. Check our calendar for the next meeting or trail ride. We meet at Kilroy's in Springfield.
Regular Monthly meetings are held at Kilroy's in Springfield, VA (5250 Port Royal Rd, Springfield, VA 22151). The meetings are on the enclosed deck in the rear of the restaurant. Most folks drive around and park behind the shopping center and enter the deck from the back of the building. The meetings are typically held on the second Sunday of the month at 6:30pm, but we do move them around for holidays or venue conflicts, so be sure to check the calendar.
Peter, Adam, Ron, Roscoe, and I left Warrenton just over eight hours into the New Year. After arriving at Sheetz in Harrisonburg we found out that the trip leader, Morgan, had a brake failure and couldn’t make the run. Doug and I knew the trails in this area well, so we decided to split the group in two and head into the forest at different points and hopefully meat up at one of the Knobs. Randy was not feeling well and decided to head home. The rest of the group was divided up so we had a similar amount of members to non members, and winches in each group. Doug’s group headed out first towards Switzer Lake. Then my group headed out to Union Springs.
The OCC Email Forum/List is truly the central vein of OCC. A substantial portion of the OCC community is our mailing list. This is where we meet and greet everyone. Questions are posted, answers are given. Trips are setup, meetings times coordinated. Technical questions are posted by newcomers and the old-timers provide years of experience.
Everyone is welcome, so please feel free to post any questions or responses on our list. This is an email list for the Off-Camber Crawlers off road club, you will be a guest for 6 months. Please use that time to decide if this club is right for you. At the end of the 6 months we hope you will have joined or declared your intention to join. If your 6 months pass and you have not made an attempt to join you will be removed from the list.
Last Saturday (21 Feb, 2015) , Travis Shepphard and I along with our amazing wives attempted to summit Spruce Knob in the middle of a pretty good snow storm. Our plan was to spend the night at the summit and hang out.
