In keeping with trying to bring to the forefront all of the available off roading groups around the state, I bring to you today Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive located in Bangor, Maine. The Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive club was suggested by Mike Reynolds and Greg Miller. If you know of a group we haven’t featured yet, please let us know and we will add it to our list. Please provide the URL with your suggestion. If the site does not have a current website, give us some background information on it and the address and we will get it posted.
The club is often referred to as PV4WD and is a group of Jeep owners. This non-profit group is simply a group of friends who enjoy the sport of offroading. They are very active in the fight to keep the sport legal and work to educate the public and to preserve the environment as much as possible. They are also very active in charity work, such as food drives.
Those who want to join will have to pay the annual member dues, which is $15 for a single screen name and $20 for two screen names. Usually this is when a couple want to be part of the club. The membership lasts for an entire year. There are stickers and decals that you can buy to add to your vehicle, and it is encouraged that those who join live in Penobscot County, as that is where most of the events take place, though there are members from other areas. All makes, models, and years of Jeeps are welcome.
You can register for the club right on the site, see how they ride, see members’ rigs, and even find youtube videos. There are club requirements listed; while this is an easy going club, there are still rules to follow and Jeeps need to be equipped a certain way. There is also a forum where members can connect to each other and a gallery.
