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.
OWe 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.
OCC's main goal is to promote and participate in safe, responsible off-highway vehicle (OHV) driving and to participate in and have a positive impact on the community. If there is a member or guest of OCC that needs information or help we are always there to lend a hand or point you in the right direction. Newcomers are always welcome and never made to feel that their questions are insignificant.

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.

IMPORTANT THIS MONTH ONLY - The October 2017 meeting is rescheduled to be on Sat, Oct 7. It will be in Pennsylvania at the Ale House where the group has dinner that evening, during the 20th Anniversary Run.
Our regular Monthly meetings are open for everyone and are normally held at Kilroy's in Springfield, VA (5250 Port Royal Rd, Springfield, VA 22151). They typically occur on the second Sunday of the month at 6:30pm, but be sure to check the calendar because we do move them around for holidays or venue conflicts. The meetings are usually on the enclosed deck in the rear of the restaurant, but sometimes we are inside. Most folks drive around and park behind the shopping center and enter the deck from the back of the building. This is a great way to get to know us, so feel free to drop in or contact us if you have any questions.

We all met at Sheetz in Harrisonburg, fueled up, got food, free coffee, and had a driver’s meeting. After the Harvins finished re-tightening lug nuts, we hit the road about 9:30 AM. After passing through the Harrisonburg square and down Rt 33 through the George Washington Forest the group turned onto Dunkle Hollow trail.

The meet up was scheduled for 10am with a hoped for roll out after a drivers meeting by 10:30. Fortunately everyone showed up at least 30 minutes early.
A loose vehicle check / discussion and story time ensued for a good 45 minutes. We had six vehicles and twelve people.

And a host of Shenandoah Valley Jeep Club members we met on the mountain.
We all met up at the Sheetz in Harrisonburg in the morning.
Set andrew's and held CB radio to Channel 4 and headed out.
I decided to go out 33 and up Dunkel Hollow.
There were hunting camps everywhere and hunters all along the road.
The trail was recently graded and graveled for the first section of the road. After that it got back to normal (rough). We came up on a pair of stopped vehicles and got out to see what was wrong. The Grand cherokee had knocked off a metal valve stem on a tree branch. The did not seem to have a spare tire so they were using duct tape and ear plugs to stop the leak.
!!!! OCC to the rescue!! I had a set of the Colby Valve emergency replacement valve stems in my jeep! I got one and told them how to install it. They were very happy to have a solution and thanked me for the Colby. They then pulled their vehicles off the trail and proceeded to make repairs. (Stupid Alan forgot to get an email address to find out how well the thing worked).
We got to the ridge line and stopped to work out our route. We headed to nearby Flagpole Knob and got some pictures and I got some drone pics and video (it was really windy so we did not stay long.
We met up with a large group from Shenandoah Valley 4 Wheelers and all of us went to Meadow knob for lunch.
I awarded the prize: The winner of the Couples Valentines day gifts were Bryan & Crystal!
After much chatting, eating and Teah begging EVERYBODY for food we off with the Shenandoah group following us.
The trail was fun. nice rocks, and good mudholes. We stopped for pictures at the Stone House. Then we chatted as we drove our way down the mountain.
At Hone Quarry Alan stopped so he could find a Geocache and Bryan could air up.
We then all hit pavement and made our ways home.
We had a really beautiful warm day for wheeling. Met up with good friends, helped out other wheelers and came out with no damage..
Overall a great reboot to the Valentine's day OCC ride!
