Florence, SC area Jeepers

A friend and I have put together what we call Carolina Trails Offroad. This has been in place for a few months, and we have an interest in getting other jeepers in the local area of Florence, SC involved. This is kind of a "feeler" post to see what kind of interest there is out there. Before this, we've been doing invite only to a certain few people.

The idea is nothing fancy or terribly organized. On a once a month occasion, maybe get together somewhere in town and eat, tell lies, and network with each other. When someone is going wheeling, they will have a pool of local jeepers to pull from so they do not have to go alone. At certain times we may have a group trip to places like Uwharrie, maybe taking the jeeps on the beach in NC and surf fishing, that kind of thing.

Anyone that might be interested, just reply to this post. I can also be contacted via PM.

What's not done? You working on a jeep? Myself and another fella that I met on the forums get together and help out with wrenching. That's the other purpose of networking. If you need help, just let me know. Please shoot me a PM with your info. I'll set something up soon for a meet and greet in town.

What is the best day for you? I've heard Tuesday tossed out. I live over by Francis Marion University myself. I was thinking about maybe getting together in the afternoon and doing a beer/introduction session. Wednesdays don't work for me because of Church.

We will be having a meet and greet on Tuesday, August 18th at the La Bamba Mexican restaurant behind the Florence convention center at 6:30 PM. Anyone in the area that is interested is perfectly welcome to attend. There are a good bit showing interest offline, so it should be a good time. Very informal, we are going to simply eat, drink, and have a good time.

Thanks,

Bryan D.

I'll be there. My jeep is slowly getting done. I will be doing the wiring to the motor this week. Tinkering with the drive shaft now. Then it's off to the muffler shop. Can't wait till it is done. That's my wife opinion also, so I can clean out the yard. I have parts everywhere in my back yard. LOL
Thanks,
Doug

No problem at all. Probably looking at Sept. 22nd for the next meeting, but that is tentative at this point. I'll firm things up and post it. Can't wait to see Doug's V8 swap!
