Soo, I saw this in the Northeast JKO regional forum and thought it was a good idea. Consider it stolen.
Here's a list of local people to your area that you can call if you get stuck, if you are in a bad situation, or are broken on the trail. I will try to keep the OP organized by region's of the state. Hopefully we can get it a Sticky for quick viewing on Tapatalk.
So if you are willing to help a fellow Jeeper in your area out, post up your contact information. Copy and paste this, click reply, then fill in your info and press post! Easy as 2 + 2!
