Howdy David! Good to see another OCer in the Burg. We occasionally schedule lunches or dinners and notify folks here of OC meals so that we can get as many of us together as possible. Some of us know each other relatively well now so other times we'll just call each other up and have meals with friends. I'll set up something for us here in the next week or so, so watch here for an opportunity to join up and meet some of the rest of us.
In case you haven't seen, we do have a Lynchburg area OC report thread that gets updated as we think about it. See here for the most recent discussions:
I've been here about 4.5 years and OC nearly every day and really have had no issues with it. I hope to see you at one of our meals if you can make it. Let us know if you have times that absolutely won't work for you and we'll try to work around that.
