Be aware that new social groups are popping up constantly, chartered clubs are a bit more stable, inherent to the fact that they operate under a corporation status. LA4x4 has been around for 20+ years, AWOL I believe about 8-10, Northshore was in operation for I think 8 and NOLA (the newest) about 3. NOLA may be new but the club has come a long way in the short to time it has been in operation and has some very dedicated people involved.
While there is a difference in how they operate and what they focus on, the one thing that you will find in common is a love for Jeeps.
