Need to meet other jeepers....help

Hello!!

I am about to DIE of BOREDOM in my one horse town!!
How do I find local people in my town who want to off-road and have fun without drawing the attention of weirdos. I looked online and I can only find "family oriented' jeep clubs, which I don't mind occasionally, but I like to have a beer and say the "F" word sometimes. The other club looked like a mixture of 'Deliverance' and the over 80 club. I am in Visalia, CA, and I am dying to learn. I hope I don't offend anyone if you fall into any of these categories.....hehe

Thanks,
C

most clubs say there family oriented. I belong to a club up in the bay area. I don't wheel with them very often. I found people within the club to wheel with. that's kinda how it works. beer and hard alcohol can be found in someones cooler on are runs. and the family oriented club I belong to believe that a blender is part of the recovery gear needed on the trail.( after the kids go to bed of course)

I know how you feel its always just me and my wife that go out off roading. I really need a winch and new front bumper cause if i get stuck well im really stuck. I think for me its cause i dont get along with the locals at all. Im a english guy living deep in french territory. I dont speak french and they hate anything that is english. they are really rude obnoxious people and they are still mad cause they lost the war. maybe 10% of the town i live in understand english and i been refused service at places like they just ignore me. Its unreal it really is.

Go to some club meetings, even if you don't want to join them. You'll meet like minded people. They join the over 80's clubs and the family oriented clubs just to meet folks too. Give it a shot, the most harm that will come is that you've wasted an hour or two...

Go to a few meetings for the different clubs, even if you don't plan on joining. You WILL most likely meet some like minded people.

there is a great camping club that does A LOT of off roading with some very knowledgeable members. A few jeepers belong to the club. While they claim to be family oriented, there rarely are kids, and the nights tend to have lots of drinking and cursing around the camp fire.

if your interested, they are based out of Orange County, but the trips go all over the place.
