Moving to Wellington soon

So, as the title says, the wifey and I are moving to Wellington soon. She's leaving with two horses on Tuesday, and will be down on Thursday, assuming all goes well. I'm finishing up my associates up here in NY, so I won't be down until December or January.

Anyway, looking to meet some folks. I'll be coming down next weekend to check out colleges to continue my education, and would love to meet some of the locals

Also, we WILL need to meet someone who'd let me use their garage from time to time in exchange for beer, work done, or non-sexual favors (sorry, guys- the boss made me add the non part ). But that's after a meet-up.

So let me know- I'll have a rental car, and she'll have her JK down there next weekend. POST UP! I want to meet some folks! Thanks- Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...

I'v got a friend in Wellington... where are you gonna be down there? Apparently theres a good and a bad side of town... at least from a schooling perspective. She just moved from one to the other.

She's originally from Long Island, while not a jeeper she and her husband (and 3 girls) are really cool, if you guys need some assistance getting settled I could see if she'll help ya out.

Be good to meet another New Yorker. I'm heading down for the winter in late December, early January, but the wifey is leaving to head down there tomorrow. If you could PM me her e-mail, I'd love to learn more about the good/bad sides of town, as I'm studying to be a teacher in FL state! Thanks! Mark W.

Are the horses going to be stabled as Equis? That development is rediculous, although a little south of Wellington. My father lives in Boynton Beach.

Well.

I live in Jacksonville and you'll pass through here on the way there most likely, so I'd be glad to grab a beer with ya, but your destination is still quite a bit further South!

Wellington is pretty close to Corbett, other than that you have Ocala 3+ hours to the north and unless you like mud ur pretty much SOL . .. . However we do have a lot of wonderful top-down/doors off days here.

I spend many weekend in Boca with my GF, I live in miami though. Now I'm subbed ill try to do my best to get to any M&G's

Hey welcome to Fl!! I'm in fort lauderdale, let me know whenever you need to work on your jeep because at least once a month a group of friends get together at my warehouse to work on our jeeps, we do from oil changes to engines swaps and full long arm suspensions installs.

Gus- SOLD! I'll bring the GOOD beer. Once I find a place down there, that is. Not to mention, I'll have most of my tools down there, so I should be a solid hand, regardless of if I need to do anything to my own rig- Mark W.

i hope your ok with pink on your Jeep!

In 2009 a crack commando wheelin' unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the South Florida underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as wheelers of fortune. If you have a problem. If no one else can help. And if you can find them. Maybe you can wheel with The 50/50 Off-Road Team.
