My brother and sister used to live on the island, I wanted to head out there to do some wheeling, but they have moved, and I haven't been back since.
I might be convinced to try a road-trip!

There are a couple of off-road clubs here but none Jeep-specific. Also, from what I've seen, the local guys/gals are pretty hardcore and many rigs are really beat-up old Toyotas with no beds and exo-cages... not the fate I want for my Jeep! Ideally, I'd love to start a Jeep club but I have no idea where to go wheeling where my Rubi won't be killed. The big problem is that so many of the 'classic' trails have been gated since the majority of the Island is owned by the huge logging companies like Macmillan/Bloedel and they don't want the liability of some drunk redneck rolling his truck on their land and sueing. I don't blame them on that one...
There's been some idle chatter about the BC-based clubs going in together and buying land for an off-road park but the logistics are just midboggling to say the least, not to mention the cost factor.
Personally, I'd like to go back out to Calgary and wheel Waiporous and the foothills again! I only lived there for 7 months back in 2001 but had a good time with my Cherokee while there!
I'm from victoria too. Lots of trails not to far from town. If you are looking for a Jeep club tryhttp://highsprung.com/I haven't been out with them but looks like they have some fun. We should do a Jeep only run some time. Just got my Jeep back on the road. I have been itching to go wheeling for a couple months.
If it Breaks it needed replacing anyways!
