I'm gonna brag...

Our jeep club, www.jackedupjeepclub.com, was started up (officially) in June of 2008. Since then, I've had the opportunity to watch it grow like a champ.

Jester (jake) was just a guy that lived around the corner from me who drove a blinged up TJ (LOL). I met this insane human being the DAY I got back from Jeep Beach 2008. I literally still had beach sand in my hair the first time I met him. He told me he was thinking about starting up a jeep club, gave me a web address and asked me to check it out.

Our first meeting was, I think, 4 or 5 Jeeps. We took up a portion of a tiny section of the restaurant we all met at. We had no clue what we were doing, but we knew we all liked Jeeps.

A year (and some change) later....

We just got back from a meeting at the same restaurant and it was kick ass. We took up the entire section we only partially filled before. Probably had around 30 people there with 10 or so Jeeps representing. Not one, but 2 new guys showed up and one of them basically told us he had 5000 acres we could ride on!!!

It's been amazing to be a part of a Jeep club's development from scratch. We are unusual too. We have no officers. No bickering. All our trail rides are planned on the forum. We are still learning how to do things like organize a garage sale lol, show n shine, etc., but it's just damn neat to see something develop from NOTHING into a genuine club that is representing in our tiny sliver of the jeeping world.

That's all I got.

(and yes, I am legally drunk).

Very cool and a great reason to feel proud. Imagine in another year or two, how much more it will have grown. Maybe your son and his buddies will be running things after you are eventually incapacitated and drooling on yourself.

Nice meeting you too John. We'll be back there in 2 weeks and check out the jackedupforum. Good chance we'll all be at Somewheres for the UFC fight this weekend.



LOL edit: or maybe not

I joined the forum as a virtual member but haven't had much free time to hang out and see your progress. Great to hear it's doing so well.

That's awesome about those 5000 acres. Would be neat if you could create obstacles and trails on there too.

I'll be getting the information regarding the 5000 acres and will definetly share the wealth. The owner said the only rules he has isno 4wheelers (due to the usual lack of respect for staying on the designated trails) and no littering or shooting beer cans.

As far as the Club things goes its funny that Dave posted this last night. As I left the resturant last night I told my buddy that was with me that it is a great feeling to know that just over a year ago this Club didn't exist and now we are a group of friends that have a hell of time hanging together. No BS political problems and whining. Just Jeeps.
