Hopefully I don't come off as a weirdo, looking to make new Jeep friends...

    Hey everyone, I'm hoping I don't come off as a weirdo or a sad sack... I'm now in my mid 40s and as life goes on it seems all of my friends have kind of gone their own way as far as hobbies or just how they spend their free time. So I'm left here with my crazy passion for Jeeps & off roading with no one to talk to (droning on and on about all the killer mods I've made to my JLUR and future off road excursions I'm planning) :lipssealed: Anyone down here in the South Bay area (Morgan Hill) that is interested in doing some off roading (maybe Hollister Hills) or just making new Jeep (obsessed) friends? Sincerely, a Sad Sack & Jeep obsessed :LOL:

    True, never too many Jeep friends! :like: I do pass through Sac every now and then on my way to Grass Valley or Tahoe. Have you been on any cool trails out in your neck of the woods? I went to Winter Fun Fest in Grass Valley a couple of months ago, that was a pretty good time!

    Too late, you are now pegged as a total wierdo. :P

    FYI, there is a SF bay area facebook group, they are said to be very active. I am kinda boycotting FB, so I don't really know, but I do plan to deal with the Devil and get access to FB soon.

    Also, yea, friends move on, and you need to make new friends. That's how it goes.

    Anyway, I am up here in CoCo County, looking to get out before I go mad.

    I don't know anything about actual off road trails around here, just went for a trip down Marsh Creek Rd, Morgan Territory Rd, and Vasco Rd. Morgan Territory becomes a one lane road, but some guy up there was driving his Porsche 911. Fun trip, only a little mud by the side of the one lane road, did get me tired out though.

    Gotta check out Hollister Hills, what is down that way?

    Peace

    Check out the NorCal forum under the Staging Area here. We’re not super super active, but runs get posted there from time to time. There’s on coming up next weekend that I won’t be able to make.

    That said, I’m definitely down for Hollister Hills! I’d been waiting for the rains to end.

    Thanks for the info. :like: All we really have down here is Hollister Hills. It's where I learned how to off road as a kid and it's a pretty cool place to do some good off roading (mild to pretty difficult trails.) I've done the Rubicon in my Dad's CJ7 back in 94 and that was the best time I've ever had off road.:rock: I want to plan a trip there in my JLUR sometime next summer!

    Whoa, i didnt see this before now. But HELLO! i feel your pain. I am close to the 40 year mark as well. Kids and family run my life so no real jeeping friends yet. Im out in tracy but always down to do more trails. If you look below a few people are planning on doing a sourgrass run up hwy 4 pretty soon.

    I've done hollister a few times even during the rainy season. For the most part, as long as you wait a few days after it has rained the mud dries out for the most part and the mud can be avoided.

    You drive a Jeep... you're already amongst friends by default. ;)
