Newbie from Arizona
« on: May 25, 2014, 10:00:55 pm »
Hello everyone! 

Been offroading for a few years back in Arizona but life has now taken me to Texas for a few months.  Thought why not join a local club and see if I cannot get into a few trips before leaving.

Since I know everyone will say  :worthless: I thought I would include one to avoid that.




Sadly my off roading will be limited as I am enlisted in the Air Force and unable to drive more than 2.5 hours from Sheppard AFB...

Welcome aboard! Unfortunately, most everything in Texas is privately owned so traveling to wheel is inevitable in this state.

Welcome to the driest place on earth!
Sunday the 8th there is a good group heading to Bridgeport for a memorial run.  One of their BOD members was killed in a work accident a few weeks ago.
