    Default Joining a 4x4 club

    Hi all, I am contemplating joining a 4x4 club.

    First off all I am a single guy and doing some of the trails alone causes some damage and it is not always a good idea going out on a trail alone, hence my reasons for looking for a club to join.

    My reasons are:
    1. Safety
    2. Meeting people (hopefully someone of the fairer with the same hobbies, haha)
    3. Using my "bakkie"
    4. Not going to trails on my own and sometimes needing the help of a "spoter".

    I am looking for an active club with I guess something happening every second month. And preferably close to my own age of 35.

    Allot of the clubs I found online looks fairly inactive, this is based on photos and events listed on the websites.

    I am very new to the hobby and only done some of the obstacles at moegatle including the chicken route up the mountain, haha.

    I drive a stock ford ranger 3.2 4x4.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated and looking forward to the beginning of a fun hobby. Go 2017!

    Manny might even tell a few death wobble stories as well. None is true naturally.

    A good crowd that goes on trips frequently.

    If he has Raptor stuff on his Turbo-popper I doubt they'll let him join...

    Talking Re: Joining a 4x4 club

    Well seems like 4x4 Action group is the only club mentioned which made my choice allot easier, thanks for all the input guys, just submitted my online membership, have a nice day and looking for an awesome year.

    note, move raptor insignia application date to >= approval date, it does give 5HP extra from what I heard. " title="Evil" border="">

    Ek wil graag aansluit by 'n aktiewe 4x4 club in die Weskaap. Is besig om te trek van Mpumalanga na Shelly Point by die Weskus. Wil graag die jaar gaan toer in Namibia, Botswana, ens. Ek en my vrou is so 56 en afgetree. Ry 4x4 Hilux met Escape. Enige voorstelle.

    dankie
