Started by Kathryn in Maryland - Washington DC - Northern Virginia Meet Up Bears 3 weeks ago
Hello, I started this group because I did not see one already for the Maryland-Virginia-DC region. My name is Kathryn and I live in Gaithersburg Maryland. My fiance and I are interested in meeting fellow Bears - as we live in a predominantly liberal area, it would be nice to have some community here! 

Hello Kathryn! I'm Christine, and I'm over in Beltsville, just over the border into PG county. So you know, there is a Mid-Atlantic Group that you might want to check into, but it's nice to have something focused more directly on us poor souls languishing in the outer reaches of Deep State Heck. Always surprising to know there are other Bears here with me so deep in enemy territory!

Hey Christine! Beltsville is pretty close to me! Yes it is definitely enemy territory for sure but I am standing my ground out here!  I'm going to check that group out too - thanks for telling me!

I joined Mid-Atlantic but I'm interested in a more focused area like this one. We aren't in the mountains we are in, as you say, "enemy" territory. I'm in Virginia, lived and worked along route 7 my whole life. Good to know you fellow bears.

Good to have you WildSpearmintBear! Its great finding more bears that live around me. I think sometimes through the internet we just think all the "based" folks are far from us - so its quite comforting to realize how many bears or based people actually live near us.

Hi, I'm in Northern Virginia and I was curious to find similarly minded people.

Hey icecreambear! I am in northern Virginia a ton because my fiance runs his business there. I have been very busy lately but would love to meet up with any of the bears in the area.

Hey bears!! I’m in Northern Virginia as well, in fairfax county. I agree this is grabbler central. Would love to meet like minded bears. My Instagram is dillpickles4, and is the only social media I use. Feel free to add and maybe we can start a more interactive group there. Keep crushing!!!

I'm so thankful to still have work right now, but I want to start researching and planning what it would take to live autonomously. I have two minds about it: either buy land somewhere that won't give me a headache and live off the land, or live closer to family and find a way to make money self employed like.

@wildspearmintbear  Both sound like solid options to me. I'm glad you still have work in the meantime though too!

Yeah I'm thinking about moving out towards Harper's Ferry but I'm not the biggest fan of commuting.  Back in 2008 DC area was one of the most recession proofs areas in US because of all the gauranteed government jobs.  That also resulted in it becoming more crowded, rent went up, and the suburbs kept expanding out farther from the city.  If something crazy happens this is probably one of the safer areas, yet still expensive.
