Checked around and there is only one local club here. Two others are now defunct. I missed their meeting this month so I'll check them out in March. Their website says "family-friendly" so we'll see

Haha, oh come on it's only a 24 hour drive! What's 24 hours between people that off handedly know each other (barely) through an internet forum?

Ripper I'm super impressed with how much you know/do at 18 years old. Yer gonna go far kid! I'm 8 years your senior, but know only maybe 1/16th about mechanics/Jeeps that you know!

Then again at 18 I had my own General Contracting company and was bidding projects that valued in the millions...In fact I landed a fire station job here on my 19th b-day that was 2.3 million dollars haha. Boy have time's changed! Now I'm on workers comp and barely make enough money to pay the bills. Sigh.

Anyways, props Ripper, keep up the good work bro!

Cheers

thanks man i appreciate it, i do all i can to keep learning and trying to do things myself. someday i'd love to open my own shop and build rigs for people, but in my area there's just not enough people interested and no good wheeling spots anyway. so as of now im studying engineering

and that contracting deal sounded pretty sweet, sorry to hear it didn't continue

I'm glad this thread took off again. It seems like the WDYDTYYJT thread is more like the water cooler.

So I guess you are discriminating against me huh? Just because you don't drink, doesn't make it wrong.

I don't blame you for drinking, Ben. If I had a face like yours, I would drink too.

I meant drinking while wheeling. Our club has a zero tolerance on open containers in the vehicle while driving.

just a quick side note I'm 22 with a decently built rig. do you know how weird it is when I get to enforce rules and regs of a club to guys that are twice my age? with rigs that cost 8x what mine does? I'm part of my TRC and running for MAL for my group and its a weird feeling man. also that first time on a trail when you get in a bad bind and everyone looks to you to figure it out and you're like uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh........... yeeeaaaaaaa........ well... hmmmmmmmmm... its a WEIRD feeling

Ben knows I'm just joking. I'm all for drinking around the campfire.

Considering open container is against the law, even on the trail. The people I wheel with, feel the same way, including me. Also some of them are cops.

By the way, the more I drink, the better I look. You, on the other hand, are stuck with that face.

Yeah it's a curse!! I have to stay away from small children because I scare them, not because of the court order. :haha: And I wheel with my share of police officers as well but I'm the first one to say something on the trail though.

The gas price posts a few pages back brought back a fond memory. I was 15, turning 16 in a few months. I got my first vehicle, a '91 YJ with the 4.0L and a 5-speed. The reason we got it before I could get my drivers license was so I had time to learn to drive a stick. I had done it before in my granddad's old S10 when I was 13 (probably not a lot of that going on these days, but he lives in a very small town). Turned 16, Dad took me to get my license. Passed the test with flying colors. And about a week later, the first time I filled it up on my own. $14 later it was on F. Gas was under $0.90 a gallon, and it was a 15 gallon tank. Ahhhhh, those were the days. The freedom of being 16, in a Jeep with the top and doors off, and cheap gas. Fast forward about 16 years and it takes about $50-60 to fill up my TJ.

I remember when gas broke two bucks a gallon. I drove past the gas station one night, needing gas but feeling too tired to stop and thinking "yeah I can make it home. I'll just fill in the morning."

Next morning came and I stopped at the gas station. Gas had gone up something like $.08 overnight and was now at $2.03. I remember panicking and thinking "Sh*t well I guess I won't be driving anymore. How the hell could people afford that?" It cost me like $35 to fill the TJ up. Fast forward to now and I would do a lot of things to be able to fill the Jeep up from red to Full for only $35!

Cheers
