Lumpyd, I see you're from Waterford. I'm a BOD member of JT4x4. We are based out of Groton, Waterford, Norwich area and have members in Colchester and other places. We do monthly meetings, monthly trailrides and a lot of other get togethers throughout the year. Some places are public, but we also have a couple private properties right in our area that we wheel. I've never met anybody from BB Offroad yet, but they are another good club that's about 1.5 hours or so south of us.
There are clubs around if you look for them.
PS to myself. I really need to come to the regional area more often.
