I have been out searching for more Jeep Off Roading clubs around the United States. As I find them, I will continue to post them here so if you live in the area of one of the clubs and don’t already belong, you can be informed of what is around you. Often times Jeep Off-Road clubs have their own special events, (like ones I have posted about in the past) where anyone can partake in and with summer coming and looking to plan a little vacation time, connecting with another club is a great way to connect with other likeminded people if you care to venture in their direction. In my search to bring various Jeep Clubs to the forefront I came across the Mile-Hi Jeep Club of Colorado. The following is information from their website and their contact information if you are interested in attending their upcoming event – 2010 All-4-Fun in Silverton, Colorado being held July 31, 2010 thru August 7, 2010.
About the Mile-Hi Jeep Club of Colorado
“On August of 1956, Kurland Motors sent out an informational letter to Jeep owners. With the help of the grapevine, a surprising 500 Jeepers packed the Kurland Motors Showroom. The consensus that night was to form the first four-wheel drive club in the state of Colorado and the Mile Hi Jeep Club was born. Our official registered logo is a red, white, and blue representation of a Jeep climbing 14,264 foot Mt. Evans, with Mt. Elbert in the background.”
(With such a great camaraderie in its history, it is no doubt that this Jeep off roading club knows what being a Jeeper is all about.)
“The purpose of the Mile Hi Jeep Club of Colorado is to unite adventure loving people in worthwhile 4-wheel drive activities; to educate its members in the proper manner of all road driving; to protect and preserve the natural beauty and terrain; to participate on a volunteer basis in search and rescue and other humanitarian missions as the community needs; to share good fellowship while operating our vehicles in a manner as to preserve and protect our land for all generations; and to extend the courtesy of the open road to all.”
What a great mission statement! Way to go Mile Hi! Coming soon is the Mile Hi Jeep Club’s 44th annual All-4-Fun Week in Silverton, Colorado (July 31, 2010 thru August 7, 2010). From what I read, there is still time to register for this event if you are interested, but spots are filling up fast so jump on this quick if you are going to be out that way!
