Anyone in or near Gainesville?

Hey everyone. I'm trying to find more local Jeep owners. Everyday I see Jeeps everywhere but there doesn't seem to be any kind of Jeep community here locally. I've created a facebook group to try and get local Jeep owners together.

If you are in Gainesville or close to it, please join my group here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/GainesvilleJeepers/

Thanks!

Mike

I sent the request on the group page. I too see a lot around. The only jeep "clubs" are at least an hour and a half away.

Thanks. Let me know when and I should be there. Maybe when school starts back up. A lot of people take vacations now so that could be a reason.

Yeah I'm familiar with them. Ocala isn't Gainesville.

It's close, but not close enough. I want to start a group in Gainesville so if someone needs help wrenching on something there are other people close enough to swing by and drink beer and watch

PapasJP, if you haven't already went to the FB page, check it out:

I'm sure that's where a lot of planning, announcements, etc will be

Hi David! I see you got a new Jeep. I've met you once or twice when you had the red 2 door. I bought a couple of parts from you off here.

We have had a pretty good turnout for the first couple meet-ups. About 7-ish jeeps with about 11 people both times. This last time we went to moonscape for a short night ride/exploration. Everyone close by should come out to the next one. We may eat fast and finish early so we can go "explore" again while it's still light out.
