    I have had enough interest shown in the posts, that i am going to put together a club. Right now i am in need of a name, and also some of the following places and event listings: Wheeling spots ( public and private ), 4X4 events, truck/ car shows, and any thing else you can think of. i think teh people who get in on this will have a lot of fun together. i know the december meet went over very well, and i hope to see some of the people that were there get in on the club. Please PM me with club name ideas, and i will compile a list of the appropriate ones, and post it as a pole.

    What about

    North East Full Size

    I think we should stay away from K5, as some people here don't have K5's....the last "k5" event we went to in PA, at Paragon, we left the K5 at home, and drove the Duramax..that's at least full size..

    If I can soapbox for a moment, I would recommend not using K5 or full-size in the name. I think by making it brand or size specific (even by name), you're needlessly limiting yourself. Even if it is all K5s right now, what if some poor guy in your area with a Yota needs to group to wheel with? There's no reason to cut him out.

    North East Offroad sounds good. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif It's not brand specific either, which is good. My club has some friends somewhere in western Mass that wheel some insane trails, but I can't remember where they are. I think they're all part of a Zuki club?? You might wanna try to look them up. The trails are supposedly well known to the area so maybe someone on here already knows of them.

    I know in the summer time they have hill climbs out in Munson, Ma. i think they're like once a month or so, i also might have another guy that's got a jeep that might be interested in the club, we've got some trails around my area.....not sure how legal they are but they are really fun......you need a nice turning suspension to get through some of the parts....we could also have meets in the summer up at Hamton Beach in NH and then at night go to the street night in Epping, and either race or just look on.........just some thoughts /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    any objection to "Northeast Offroaders"? i like the name, and i also did a search, and found no other clubs by that name. who's up for it? i am thinking about having decals made up, and maybe t-shirts. ill sell these at cost, and for now that will be optional. i want the club to be free or as cheap as possible for members. all i care about is having any cost(if there is any) covered. My goal is to have a club that is full of friends, new and old, and also represent any rights and or privelages we have as off highway drivers. I am NOT a political activist, and do not want to be known as one. i will stand up for my rights however. I also want to find wheeling spots, and have club events, such as trail ride days, car shows and cruises. maybe group discounts on parts and event entry fees.
    ANY ONE WITH ME????
