That would have been quite a positive sight to see in those days. Farming for good health & plowing snow in the wintertime.

I wonder how much a man got paid to plow snow in those days.

Hey Doc, I need to slow down on this and not get carried away. So much Jeeps to see. I am also doing research on TJ's too as well.

Came across this. I am not doing any rock crawling or anything like that.

That makes sense for the mountains of Pennsylvania.

Well its good to be informed and to keep looking, that Jeep is just one of many. you may find one that works for less. even a 100k one that is well cared for, little to no off road use, and stock.

H Doc Good Morning, been reading your Jeep club trips in the desert.

I did not know Jeep clubs existed. That would be cool when I get married and have a family of my own to take my wife & the kids Jeeping. That would be a good family friendly event to go to.

This one is for Pennsylvania.

I wish more Jeep owners would join a real Jeep club. Real I mean, they are a nonprofit that supports coalition to keep our trails open, supports charities. So many people just get a Jeep and go offroad alone or with a friend. Thats fine and fun. But the clubs donate alot of money to hire lawyers to fight the lawyers that have deep pockets to CLOSE all trails in the end, like the Blue ribbon coalition etc, tead lightly etc..

Pluss these local clubs they know the trails and adopt them as well. You get to run with people that know Jeeps. Get to go places alone that would be a bad idea.

.

Supporting local needs of the charities. The WWP, food banks ect. Bigger clubs like Parker's here donates 10's of thousands every year.

I would bet there are many clubs in your area DJ. Most all have rules that are basic. Like at first you need recovery and the needed safty gear.

Well any of them that is a NON-profit. To me at least they are not out to make a buck. Things like the "Jeepers Jamboree" are ALL about the money. They have runs in about every state. BUT its all about making money on other peoples trails, they do not maintain or give rats a$$ about.

So each state has clubs, some national, some are NP's, some are just clubs. Most good 4x4 clubs will state what the support. Trust me not all are the same too. Some are hardcore wheelers that tend to not like "noobs". Some are very family friendly. I choose the latter, as there is going to be people that like hardcore anyway.

Like the B4W(Bullhead city 4W). Is very fun "new Jeeper friendly" group, though not a large club and only gets its funds through the mebers dues of 45$ a year and the "chicken" or "Duck". It a plastic hollow duck that is plucked. If anyone gets stuck or need a winch, takes a wrong turn(leaders). You pay the duck.

Our P4W Parker4 wheelers. I s not a large group but had BIG events. The money raised at these Jamboree's goes to pay for the event and the rest goes to charities, mostly local needs. From food banks to Help a kid go to collage, Saint Francis . suppport a base ball team etc.. They have now for 3 year ran the WWP Hard core poker run. Since to play you have to pay on this you buy hands, each card is earmed by completeing a run. No Limit. Some guys but 5 or more hands. You have 6 hours to get all the runs done. at the end of the day highest hand wins half the pot the rest goes to WWP. Pluss we get 5 WWP's guys that get Room and board get to go out on the days run with 5 of the best built buggies we can get round up. Great fun for the boys that gave alot to US.
