Hey everyone! So I've heard Of motorcycle clubs but is there such a thing as a jeep club? And if there is does anyone know if there are any In Ventura county? I guess I'm just looking to make friends with and meet up with other people who have jeeps and enjoy going out on trails. Ive had my jeep for several years but I've never gone off roading but I'm dying to try it.
There are several local clubs in the Ventura County area. I myself run with Pt Mugu 4x4 Club. Our adopted trail is the LockWood Valley trail in Fraizer Park. We meet in Camarillo once a month. If you are interested in checking out the club you can come to a meeting or we have a Yahoo Groups board we use to communicate.
There is also the Channel Islands 4x4 Club, Axlesnappers, etc.
$5 day use fee to get into park or you can buy an annual pass for $50 if I recall correctly. Stock is fine, we will just stay on the milder trails.My daughter boyfriends Jeep and my Jeep are pretty much stock, 30" tires & no lift, so you will fit right in. There is a thread here that is titled "Gorman 4-30", that is Hungry Valley so it would be a good thread to watch to join a local run.
I will post tonight as I may head up earlier in the day tomorrow than planned if I do not have to work at the shop. That way we can meet up and go up together.
Either way if not, the easiest way for you to get there is 126 east to I-5 North. Exit Smokey Bear road, make a left and go under the freeway then catch the dirt road right in front of you to the gate. Gate is about 3/4 mile in, pay fees if ranger is at post and proceed straight about 1.5-2 miles and you will see 4x training course on left. It is right after the first campground on your left.
Awesome sounds good!! I did see the thread for next weekend, I'm gonna try and make that one too if I don't have to work.
Yeah let me know what time your gonna head up. I was planning on going up in the morning. Like I said this is mine and my fiancés first time so were super excited!!
Looks like an afternoon trip for me, I have to work at the shop. Hopefully it is slow and we close early.
I may end up just going on the 04-30 trip. That will give me time to put on my exhaust as well as fix my rear main seal leak.
Bummer you had to work!! I'm barely gonna be heading up in about an hour. Thanks for the directions and like I said if you make it up keep an eye out for my teal jeep, my name is Mari. And if not then hopefully we'll see each other next wkend.
Think I saw you on your way back around 3 pm near Fillmore? You have the square headlights right? I was heading up after work but took the my little $400 jalopy Nissan with the quad in the back. Sure was crowded up there yesterday but I got some ride time in. Stayed until 11 pm since I had some morning obligations here at the house. Happy Easter all!!
Hey yeah that probably was me haha. I bet my jeep looked pretty dirty huh? We had a good time up at hungry valley! although I'm glad we made if home because leaving there my check engine light came on (bummer)! I was riding through the water dips in the training area so I hope it the light just came on because something got wet. Either way it was a good trip!
Meeting this Tuesday at Round Table Pizza in Camarillo. Starts at 7 pm but show up early and mingle. Great chance to meet some local off-roaders and assist us in the fight to keep our lands open for recreation.
