NOVA has their own board. Now it's time for Montgomery, Prince Georges, Frederick, Charles, Calvert and even St. Mary's to come together and have their own board. It can be called Suburban Maryland or just the DC Suburbs. Who's with me???!

You are going off the deep end there. You might as well call it a diving board.

What is a "board"?

It's there now, in a way.
First there is the Washington DC board, which discussions center around the District and PG and Montgomery County.
Then there is the Northern Virginia board, which covers Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William County.

Basically it is covered. We have to watch how many different threads we have open due to overall space and threads running everywhere.

Why does Northern Virginia try to seperate itself from the rest of the DC area in the first place? It seems like it doesn't want anything to do with DC at times or is it just me?

Northern Virginia is it's own little world today.
Yes, they always wanted to be away from DC, due to the river, due to being a district 2/3rd wrapped by Maryland, and many old blue bloods being Virginian's.

Today, most of Virginia does not even claim N.Virginia due to the DC influence and liberal mindset, so I guess they have seperated themselves into their own expensive world

Keep in mind that Virginia is a Commonwealth whereas MD and DC are a state and district, respectively. VA is not MD though it is very much accessible to DC; my sister lives in Arlington and they are tight with their proximity to the district.
From my point of view VA hasn't separated itself as much as we have distanced ourselves from it. You can go over there all you want and avail yourself of the amenities they have to offer.

Probably around the same time Western MD gets it's own board

AlCo and Garrett are practically a separate state!
