I've seen many people discuss jeep clubs and doing runs together, but I'm reluctant to join one. I'm just curious, what are some of the appeals to trail riding in a large group? Are the members generally nice? Also, I'm only 16, would I be welcome with then?

Hello and welcome to the forum. For me the appeal of a jeep/offroad club is that all there sharing a hobby..benefits to the person; new friends, technical help with your jeep, people to others in need..for instance one of my club members was out driving around and found an fj stuck in the mud, he did a facebook post for help and two club members just happend to be close had a winch pulled out the fj. Benefits to the community, Our club helps out the community by holding fundraisers by hosting show and shines. Trail riding even for an older wheeler like me does not wheel alone even though I have a winch due to one may get hurt and need a friend. Group trail rides are fun because its just fun watching jeeps negociate obstacles no matter what the obstacle is. Somebody always has more experience that somebody else and we all learn from each other. A club should welcome you with open arms...if they don't find or start another club. I hope you find this helpful and find a club.

Except for the age part anyway. There are 2 clubs in the area where I live, and they both require the member to be 18. Now, then you can get around that by having your one of your parents join and you latch onto their membership. The best thing to do is to check with a local club and see what their rules are.
