The USAF in her infinite wisdom, has seen fit to move me to Cannon, AFB.

Just looking for folks to wheel and wrench with in the local area, I;ll be arriving out there by next week.

I lived in Clovis for a few years. I moved about 90 miles east to Lubbock, Tx in 02. Clovis is a small town that pretty much is only there because of Cannon Air Force Base.

There is not a lot of wheeling around there (to my knowledge). Palo Duro Canyon, in Amarillo is about an hour and a half away. The Pecos Mountains and Ruidoso were the closest places for decent outdoor activities and that is a good 3-4 hour drive.

I won't talk poorly of the place, because it is what you make it. However, you will see a lot more low-riders and ricers than you will modified 4x4's. Hell, the Jeep dealer there often times does not even have a JK on the lot when I pass through Clovis.

Good luck and thanks for your service.

Thanks for the info, I'll just drive over the lowriders and scrape the ricers off the grille.

Clovis has changed quite a bit since 02. theres plenty of fellow wheelers here. you do have to travel a little for decent wheelin, but alot of 4x4's here.
