|konqrrr||I've been wanting to start a club myself...... Somehow out of all the friends i grew up with I'm the only one that loves to work on my 4x4 and run trails.... Had the idea to start one after reading Imped's build threads. His group of buddies wheel all the time and help each other out on builds. Damn am i envious of IndyOhv! Cool people,great builds and fun times.|

Anywho I love them, fees and stuff isnt a big deal, I have Leave no man Behind I like and are helpful. I digress, ANYONE know any good clubs? Not too big but decent?

|wanderlust||Don't get me wrong, I donate time and money to keep trails open and support clubs. Just not the member type.|

Thanks for adding me to the Facebook Group.
As far as actual clubs go, I was a member of a local Jeep club back in Iowa for about 6 years. Our dues were inexpensive; $35/year, and mostly paid for our group offroading insurance/liability. The camraderie is great, and we had a good time.
That said, there was DRAMA. So much so that the club split into two groups due to personality clashes and childish drama.
I'm all about wheeling and camraderie. If I can get that in an official 'club' great. If I can get it through this Forum or a Facebook group, great.
I just want to wheel

Having listened carefully between the lines of your conversations, online and in person...I would not have you as a member of any club I was in, but would feel fairly safe with you as a down hill neighbor...
As far as joining a club, there is strength in numbers and that does make a difference in the political arena. Unfortunately, trail closure issues almost always follow political or budget (read..political) trends and therefore clubs present value as a unified group of citizenry able and willing to stand for their stewardship and thus continued usage of the land.

|jeepchix||I LOVE CLUBS, Only been apart of one in North Idaho (north Idaho Trail Blazers) and I want to know if anyone had a good experience in one? Recommend any? I tried a few ppl on here thats only because I want to wheel badly that I'll do it with strangers ;] lol|

I've been a part of several enthusiast auto groups/forums for various Mercedes, bmws, and my range rover..... Without a doubt, the jeep community is truly different. I can't believe the quality of people and friendships I've made already.
The group on the Colorado forum (here) is amazing.
So for the best group post I forgot to quote: x3

|Colo-TJ||The good thing about being a part of an organized club is that they,at least most, help to defend the trail use. if it were not for the efforts of some of these clubs we would only have limited access to the trails we love to wheel. it is worth it to join a club that is active in this role even if you don't participate in the events that they hold. I respect what the majority of the 4x4 clubs do for us.|

If your religious don't take that the wrong way I don't mean any harm, your beliefs an morals are your business, the religious thing is just not me.

Nice to meet you guys im topher, the young one who gets all the crap
Honestly just look on here every few days we always have trail ride going on. There a pretty big group of us, we do both wild and nice trails just depends on the weekend.
As for clubs I have heard a lot of Colorado springs Christian 4 wheelers (I think that's the name) but other than that I don't know of any other clubs really

Colorado 4x4 Groups??
Hey everyone! Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section, but I am relatively new to the Colorado area and was hoping to meet some new wheeling friends. There are soooo many trails to go on out here in Northern Colorado, and even ones I don't know, so I was hoping to meet others who share the same interest and would like to go wheeling sometime in the summer. I believe most trails are closed in winter though. I created a Facebook Group page in hopes of meeting some locals. Please join and maybe we can all schedule group trail rides, cookouts and whatnot. Thanks and I hope to hear from you!
