    Howdy Folks. I'm a new member here, always been a fan of the military and their vehicles, and decided I should sign up when I found this site.

    I'm 20 years old out of Western North Carolina, and unfortunately don't any MVs for myself (yet). I think I'm going to have to get myself an M35 Deuce and a Half at some point. I would love to get to know some folks that live in the area, as I'd love to get a chance to drive old military vehicles. I unfortunately can only live vicariously through my grandfather, a Vietnam vet who spent most of his time fixing up the old trucks there.

    From what I can tell the site is full of military enthusiasts, as well as plenty of nice and courteous people. I look forward to browsing through the forums!

    Default WNC Members?

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking to see if there are any members of the site that live in the Western North Carolina area, around the city of Asheville that happen to own a deuce. I have seen several trucks on the road locally, and would like to get a chance to buy their owners a cup of coffee, and see if they'd mind teaching me the basics of what is needed to run and maintain one of these trucks.

    Feel free to shoot me a message!

    Thanks!

    Welcome from up here in Virginia, Mother of Presidents.

    Western North Carolina (W-NC) is a thing?

    Something new to learn every day:

    - Wonder if it's something to do with barbecue sauce.

    - is there an E-NC, or is it just W-NC and everything else is NC?

    Western North Carolina is a thing, if not just for those that live there. My understanding is that it encompasses Winston-Salem and everything west of the Piedmont region. Can't say whether its based on barbecue or not, though.
