Now don't give up completely on the idea of off-roading as it is so much fun, look into joining a club as suggested. The first thing I did was look up our club, the Gear Grinders, here in Ridgecrest. I have attended every meeting since March and I have met some great people and what really impressed me was their basic motto, "no one left behind". I was told that no matter what happens they will make sure I get help in any form needed, a spot, a tug, a tow, or a ride home. Hell I even met a guy I used to ride bikes with and lost touch with and we have been wheeling a few times since, it's all good in my book.
I have gone on 2 runs with them so far, one easy and one that was a total OMG!
And with some spotting, encouragement, and yes 1 tug they made the run a total blast!
A new Jeep owner in town and I hooked up here and went on a little run and another club member that I had not met yet joined us. We had a blast until we were on the way home, the other members Jeep started overheating badly so we towed him most of the way home, no big deal. it's just what you do.
Won't you at least think about it?
