About me: Of course I started out with a father who liked to hunt and fish so I got a good start. Later, my assigned vehicle in the Army was a 1959 M38 Jeep. When I got back from the military in '88 I purchased a 1974 CJ5 from my father and my off-roading began in earnest. Oh how I wish I knew about airing down back then I traveled the mountains around Boulder Montana-A LOT. I did not join the clubs until 2009 though. My first run with a 4x4 club was a snow run. I had been driving in the snow for much of my life so I was certainly not concerned with a little of the white stuff now. Well, I was about to start learning what real wheeling is. We were not driving "in" a foot or so of snow...we were traveling ON top of about 4 foot of it. I thought I knew all about wheeling up until that moment. I have been learning ever since.
I am currently the President of the Frontier 4x4 Club out of Helena Montana. I am a member of the Continental Four Wheel Drive Association out of Butte Montana and a Member of the Beaverhead Backcountry Pioneers 4x4 club from Dillon Montana. I am a past VP of the Montana 4x4 Association and am currently a delegate to them.
