Long island jeepers?

Hey everyone. Myself and a few others on the forum are interested in getting together on a Sunday afternoon/early evening to stare at/talk about our jeeps. All levels of experience welcomed. In fact a veteran or two would be more than welcomed, as I don't know my ass from my elbow yet when it comes to jeeps. Let me know if you're down.

Hey Greenman (Always Sunny In Philly reference?). I picked up an 07 Wrangler last August, so I'm fairly new at this. Can't seem to find any local trails, except the south shore beaches. Know of any trails besides Smith's Point or Hither Hills?
I'm in the Port Jeff area. Let me know if/when you guys plan to meet up some Sunday.
Thanks!!!

Yes it is! I'm new to everything as well, but it's good to know that you'd be down to get together with some other jeepers to talk shop. As far as trails go, I know they are few and far between here on LI. Some other members have told me about a possible trail, but I'm going to keep it off the forum so I don't inadvertently blow the whistle on it. I know there's a local offroad club based on the island called Long Island Offroad Club, that I'm considering joining. They have access to some land in connecticut and they also take trips up to Rausch Creek offroad park in Penn. I'll let u know when we decide on a date to all meet up

Hey there, I'm a new jeep owner but not new to mechanics. I just picked up an 89 YJ a few weeks ago and have begun working on it. Once its roadworthy I'd like to get out to some local meets and what not. I'm in the mid-eastern Nassau county area.

New Jeep Owner

Just picked up my first jeep from the dealer today. Would love to learn more about off road opportunities on or near the island (beyond the beaches).

nothing legal on long island period unless you own land or have permission for a land owner.

Picked up 97 TJ about a month ago. New to the Jeep thing myself, trying to find a shop or person who deals with Jeeps, my friend who does my mechanic work is more of an import car guy who doesn't know the intricacies of the Wrangler. Would love to meet up with a bunch of guys to talk Jeeps. It's an interesting thing, been getting waves from random guys driving Jeeps. I've come to find out that it's almost like a boating thing, just a friendly group of guys. I like it! Such a change from my import days when everybody was out to prove something and everything was a grudge. Long live the Jeep!!!

How does everyone feel about getting together the Sunday after mother's day? I think it's the 15th.

I hear that man. I have a civic hatch also and im always skeptical of other imports llooking at my car thinking theyre trying to steal it. Everyones got a grudge and wants to race you, no sense of community. With these jeeps everyone is all smiles and waves and more than willing to help you out.

Ok everyone, this coming Sunday at 2pm. Parking lot across from Napper Tandy's in smithtown. First LI jeep meet. Who's with me? I chose smithtown because it's right in the middle of the island but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has a better idea for a meeting place. All levels of experience welcome; come down and meet some fellow jeepers! Who knows, maybe after a couple of meetings we can organize a trip up to Rausch.

Thanks for the info McQuade. It sounds like a badass day, especially rolling up caravan style! If it wasn't on a Sunday I'd be down for sure, but it's a bit of a hike for us poor saps who have work early Monday mornings. But I'll go ahead and extend my invitation to you for our little LI meet, if you're gonna be in the area.

Meet and greet is cancelled due to not many folks being able to make it. But there are several people who happened to have plans already, otherwise they would have come down. So I will be touching base with everyone in a week or two to reschedule.

Calling all jeeps. Calling all jeeps. Let's get a meet and greet going for this week. There's a small local bar called the Tap and Barrel, in the shopping center on the corner of route 111 and 347 in smithtown. The owner, Tony, is a jeep guy himself who tells me he's been building them since he was a kid. Come down and support local business owner, drink some great beer, and hang out with other jeep owners. I'll be there, look for the black JK with Jolly Roger decals on the sides. Cheers!

-Mike

Hey guys I just moved up to NYC area and will be in Far Rockaway once I'm settled in. I know these meet & greets are hard to coordinate but if you're still trying to get it going or have gotten a regular date set let me know and I'd love to meet everyone.
