I live in Midland, TX but go to the Guadalupe National Forest west of Carlsbad quite often. There are plenty of Jeepers from Carlsbad that wheel this area. There is even a 4 x 4 club in Carlsbad called Cavern City 4 x 4. I have never wheeled with these guys, but have seen them on trails before. My wife and I have been going to this area for over 5 years and have meet enough people that we have several contacts that we will plan weekends and holidays to camp and jeep together. Our next trip is Thanksgiving 2010.
