Just thought I would pass the information along about a new club being formed in the Maryland area. From what I have been told, it is going to be very different than others.
So far I was told that the club is an "Overland" type club. Less serious rock crawling and more adventure travel and outdoor activities. The guy starting the club is a really cool guy. It is open to all vehicle types and the cost for a membership is super cheap and for military its totally free (probably because the two starting it are Vets...both infantry, Ranger, Airborne, etc). The club is looking for members who enjoy the outdoors (i.e. camping, fishing, rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, photography, etc combine with the passion for vehicle overland travel). I see there being a lot less "my tires are bigger, my suspension felx is greater, your stocker needs a lift, etc"....
For all of you that are interested in that type of stuff, I would suggest applying to be a member and help get this club on its way. I can tell you guys now that there is two big events this club is planning ("Overland for Heros" and "Hike for Hero's" - both supporting Fallen Military, Firemen, and Police Officers).
If you guys have any questions or are interested in joining up, feel free to post in here. I hope to see a few people interested. I am a big fan of what direction this club is headed.
