Welcome! I noticed earlier that you were from MD and haven't had a chance to introduce myself yet. I think you will find plenty going on in the MD/DE/NJ/PA aread. Check out the Maryland section http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/maryland-members/
especially the first four threads. We are in the process of setting up our own local Powerstroke.org chapter. We have a great group of guys that love to have fun both at the dragstrip and in the shop.
We are actually having a get together tonight at Atco Raceway in NJ. It's a bit of a haul but we have some Jersey members and a several trucks that seem to having something to prove! Check out the threads that I linked and keep an eye on the Maryland section. There seems to be something going on at least twice a month.
