It was just too congested and expensive. Traffic is a nightmare. 5 years ago I was in that area. I was driving on 495 around DC. I was in bumper to bumper stop and go traffic on 10 lane highway. Think LA kind of traffic.

There is zero boondocking land. All the land is privately owned.

I would forget about snowboarding and a trailer. I would keep my nose to the grindstone and work hard and try to survive until I got transfered to Colorado or some place else.
I think you are looking in the wrong area, it is closer to California MD (weird name for a city I know). A lot more room and not as built up from what I see. Close enough to visit DC though!

If you buy a Nash or Arctic Fox, buy it in WA.
Yeah, that is what I am hearing. Lots of ice/slush. Still a chance to have a beer and play with gravity!

Thanks to all for the tips. One more question: How far out would you recommend starting to seriously look at buying? Depending on what is available on the lots, we may have to put in an order, no idea what the lead time will be. Is there a better time of year to shop for new campers (I.E. when the next model year starts to hit the lot)?
