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.
