Hey, Rodzilla - I don't understand why there are "clubless" people out there! There are three great clubs in the Boise area I know of. You obviously know about some clubs since you used their boards to publish your run.

Hope you and your friends had fun using the trails responsibly!

Some 4x4 related business owners choose to remain clubless so as not to show any favoritism. Usually, they support the clubs in many other ways, i.e. donations, etc.

I personally understand why some people remain "clubless". I have participated as a non club member in three club sanctioned events as well as attended a club meeting. I was left with the impression that it was a very closed clique that was not interested in new members nor any outside involement I have however been invited to join one of the other growing and community minded clubs that seem to actually want to promote the sport and its virtues with an open mind, I highly recommend all 4 wheelers to continue to research what the clubs have to offer and align themselves with an organization they are comfortable with, If not we will be shut out of the recreational areas if for no other reason than failure to prove adequate #'s of users, and these #'s are supplied by clubs. Just my .02 worth

Due to an odd schedule I also have to remain clubless right now. I have nothing against clubs at all, and if I ever get a job that opens up my saturday's I will doubtless join one. Until then I just try to go when and where I can, ideally with a group, but I'll go solo too. After all there is nothing wrong with a good hike after breaking something :thumb:

Just hit Lost Trail today, and the trail looked good. No trash, no damage. I had a blast even though I couldn't hit all the obstacles I wanted too, Going solo does limit the fun a little. I was able to clear both waterfalls with almost no problems, I could say no problems if I would have been in 4L instead of 2L on the first one :darn: .

No action pics, just a couple after I made the second waterfall.

I like the club atmosphere and the reliability and accountability that it affords a member. I absolutely realize that it is not for everyone, but agree with Chucks mentality of searching for the best fit, and character match. I, unlike Joe, will not go solo. Never. There are waaay too many variables and I like to wheel hard, so that makes the playing field even tougher. It is the unexpected events that ALWAYS get me into trouble. I like very much that I can rely on my club members to save my bacon, and it always helps to have witnesses for bragging rights :flipoff: I cannot tell you how thankful I am for the club that I have aligned myself with. Great folks, glad that they are always there for me. Good discussion, glad that it was brought up. I probably have a couple other thoughts, but I have been long winded already.

I like club runs and I have gone on many with HDO when I was a samurai guy. I like the structure and fact that they require tow hooks, first aid kit, and a basic inspection, as well as no drinking, I know when I go with these guys I can trust my spotters and if I get hung up Muddin Mike has a Big winch on that huge bronco. to me it's a safety net, I have had conflict in the past with certain persons and at this point I dont know where I stand with any one club.

I dunno about prior conflicts with any persons in our club so head on over to our meeting tommorow night, I'll be your sponsor :thumb: Our bylaws aren't wrote in stone they are more of a guideline. If your interested in gettin toghter with us please show up. I bet if you express intrest in our club you can be a member one way or another.
