Charlottesville jeepers unite!!!
 
Alrighty boys and girls I am officially creating a jeepers club in Charlottesville Virginia. My idea is to bring all those, wether you be guy girl new or veteran together to share your passion for jeeping. My club is intended to give people the opportunity to get together talk about trails, help out on mechanical or electrical things with each other, enjoy events together ie things like camp jeep and possibly give back to the community. If you're interested or no someone that would be let me know. I was thinking of meeting this weekend to get everyone together.

I'm in :)

Pullsout 01-03-2011 12:05 AM

Sweet figured we could all meet Sunday afternoon at the timberwood grill round 1

Got_Mud? 01-03-2011 05:57 AM

I'll have to re-confirm on Saturday, but yeah, that sounds good. No one else has chimed in yet?

Pullsout 01-03-2011 09:23 AM

I got a buddy round here that would be in and he's got a few other friends plus I was going to drive around Cville and see if I could put some flyers on any jeeps I see

Sorry I didn't get this sooner. I'd like to have/start a club for c'ville too but I just haven't had the time. I'm not able to meet up at the grill on Sunday but I'd be happy to stay in touch to get something in the making on a roll. My idea for a club is first of all it should be free. I think all of the clubs out there charge a membership fee to pay for a website. We could come up with a way to recruit others to join other than fliers, you might invite a serial killer! A website would be great if it didn't cost much though.
I'll give it a think, your input is welcome as we could create this club together. Hopefully I can sneak away with my iPod and give some new ideas!

I didnt mean to sound like I was starting the club! I am willing to help.

Pullsout 01-09-2011 11:12 AM

Lol it's cool Phil yeah I'm on the same page as you I'm not charging to be a member I just want people to get together to help each other out the only reason I would charge something would be for like t shirts or bumper stickers. Basically you get out of the club what you put into it. If you want to private message me about thin or exchange numbers we could figure this out over the phone

Got_Mud? 01-09-2011 11:29 AM

I own a bunch of websites and pay server space anyways - I can do a page for next to nothing - like $11 a year to register the name. I can host it on my servers. Just an offer... Sorry I couldn't make it today - work got in the way. :)

Pullsout 01-09-2011 12:08 PM

I can afford 11$ a year we need to figure out when we can all get together

Got_Mud? 01-09-2011 04:37 PM

Come up with a name and I can register it and host it. Hell, I'll even kick in the $11 :) Notta biggie... and if anyone else wants to build it, I'll give ya FTP access... I'm easy... PM me or email at dan@danlopresto.com

Phil05LJ 01-09-2011 06:31 PM

Hey guys, a web site for $11 a year! That's awesome! I really think that in this day and age it is necessary to be on the web. It would be 10 times more effective to have that on fliers to pass out. Plus it makes the club sound established. I wonder if the web site could have a forum page on it? If not it's no big deal, it would be neat to be able to use one for sharing pics and other discussions such as this forum presents.
Be thinking of a name, all I can come up with so far is Central VA Jeepers. I'm no good with naming things. I'll PM you all my number, it would be good to meet up sometime to discuss everything, it would have to be on a weekend though.

Got_Mud? 01-09-2011 06:38 PM

I've been doing this awhile now - better than 15 years... believe me when it comes to website names, short and easy to remember is *paramount*.

cvillejeep.com (org, whatever)
vajeep.com
centralvajeep.com
valleyjeep.com
etc....

I'll let the more creative types chime in with more :)

Phil05LJ 01-09-2011 06:48 PM

A guy I work and wheel with ( nicely built YJ) will definitely join and he knows a guy who owns a shop in Ruckersville called Mad Mattz Jeeps on rt. 33. I'll bet he would join, I think we could help each other out a lot! It would be great to have someone very knowledgeable and the club could be good for his business. He's got a badass TJ, YouTube has a video of him rolling it over backwards in Moab.

Got_Mud? 01-09-2011 06:56 PM

You guys come up with a name and I'll be happy to register it.

Phil05LJ 01-09-2011 09:02 PM

Once we agree on a name, I'll join and register the club with VA 4wd association and United 4wd to establish the club as a "Tread Lightly" group. I am all about staying on the trail and not tearing up the surrounding terrain.
I have a lot of notes written down tonight. I think this thing just might work.

countrybumpkin 01-09-2011 10:25 PM

Hey guys sorry I didnt find this sooner as I work nights I live in louisa but work in charlottesville I am fairly new to the jeep world as i just got my 2005 tj rme less than a week ago. I would deffinately be in for something like this I work thru the weekends for now but we are coming up on a rotation so I will let you know when im off and can meet up.

Pullsout 01-10-2011 03:27 PM

I love all the enthusiasm from everybody we need to set up a time and place to meet and maybe then come up with a name if no everyone we can get a few people together do some brain storming on name and anything else we can come up with to get this group off the ground! If anyone wants to text me pm me and I'll give ya the number.

Welcome to the Jeep world countrybumpkin and congrats on your purchase! You can learn a lot on this forum and once our club is established, you'll gain a lot of knowledge from other owners from maintenance, modifications, trail riding assistance... I foresee planned trail rides that stock jeeps can handle to more challenging trails, camping trips and wrenching parties...
I think we will have something great, no matter how big or small it is. After all, it's a Jeep thing, we gotta stick together!

Phil05LJ 01-10-2011 06:52 PM

I'd text you Pullsout but I cheaped out on the cell plan so I could have extra cash for the Jeep! I'm free most Saturdays and I have a good list of ideas, too many to type. It would be best to meet and hash them out with as many folks as possible. I know it is very difficult for anyone who works weekends or has family duties to attend a meeting but I don't want anyone to feel left out. I would happily accept emails or phone calls from anyone who wishes to be heard. Your thoughts/ideas would certainly be heard and considered. Just pm me and I'll give you my contact info.

Phil05LJ 01-10-2011 07:11 PM

One more thing... If you think of a name for the club, google it to make sure it's not taken. Also keep in mind what Got Mud said, keep it simple. Now, grab your favorite beverage and start thinking!

Phil05LJ 01-10-2011 07:24 PM

Dammit! I did it to you again Pullsout! My reply to countrybumpkin sounds like it's my club, sorry dude, I get pumped up with jeep talk and get carried away!

Pullsout 01-10-2011 09:05 PM

Lol it's alright man how many people would be able to meet up not this Saturday im saying the following Saturday so people can check schedules and let me know time wise when during the day they could meet. Plus I work every other Saturday and this one coming up I gotta be at work so anyone interested in meeting not this Saturday but the following let me know

Pullsout 01-10-2011 09:11 PM

Oh a name I was thinking of to call the club "Dirty Minds"

Phil05LJ 01-10-2011 09:12 PM

I'm in for next Saturday.

Phil05LJ 01-10-2011 09:59 PM

"dirty minds"? Not sure that one gives the right idea bud! I was thinking more along the lines of a name that would invite anyone in VA with a Jeep that wants to take interest in being a member of a family friendly group that gets together. The web page could influence the folks that want to get muddy or just ride a trail. All are welcome but rules must be in place to sustain order on the trails.

Pullsout 01-11-2011 12:37 AM

You don't like dirty minds guess topless riders is outa the question :) what we all think of mud stompers?

LOL... Funny stuff... Sorry I got on this thread a little late but I would love to join and help. I too was working to get a club together but didn't have the time... I would be happy to help in any way, just let me know. I also have a friend of mine from the Corps that just got into the Jeep world. I am fairly certain that he would be interested in helping/joining as well.

Phil05LJ 01-11-2011 07:39 PM

Good deal Bad Co. Thanks! Mud stompers?! Are we talking about little toy trucks made by Mattel or Jeeps? LOL! Off subject, check out bantamjeepfestival.com if you haven't already. I just found out about it. I'm gonna sign up tomorrow. Looks like that will be my first summer vacation in a long time. It's in august, all Jeeps and you can camp on site. Their going for a world record for most Jeeps in a parade. I want to be a part of that, that's about the only record I could ever be a part of, unless there is a record for eating 6 1/2 pounds of cheese in 2 days, cause I would win.:D

Pullsout 01-11-2011 09:23 PM

Bad company you think you and your buddy would be able to meet up on that Saturday I was talking bout you too mud and country
