Hello all,
I live in the great state of Virginia. I am on my second cub and dang it I can't seem to get away from it even when I tried. I have jumped around on this site for awhile and finally decided to take the plunge and join. Are there any cub members in my area? and if so Is there any honest person in that area to turn to for engine work? I am in the process of moving to my house in southern Virginia, In the Blacksburg area and I am in need of some assistance with my cub. She smokes alot and is underpowered compared to my last one.

Welcome aboard Jim! There are several Virginia members. I'm not sure who may be close to you but I'm sure they'll jump in somewhere on this thread.

Hi Jim. When I saw the Arlington I wondered that area is pretty much built up not room for many tractors. Then I saw near Blacksburg and realized there is much more open land nearby. My son used to work in Arlington and environs for the tel co. He is now nearer Fredricksburg. One of my brothers lives in Blackburg. Rich isn't into tractors though.
There is a map of where members are located but I don't remember how to access it at the moment. If I remember right you had to sign to it to be listed on the map.
