I own a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and live in Bakersfield, CA. I attended a Jeep Jamboree last September and am slowly starting to upgrade my Jeep with better tires, reinforced skid plates and hidden winch mount.
I hear there may be a group in Bakersfield who meets regularly. If there is anyone in the area who'd like to get together for a little off-roading, feel free to message me.
Cheers!

Howdy, Xenolith. Welcome! I'm on the East Coast now, but grew up in Visalia, not too far up hwy 99 from Bako. I'm fairly new here myself, but have found that there's a wealth of knowledge and experience to tap into as you get your feet wet. Enjoy!

Thank you! I've been through Visalia a few times. Nice little town. I agree, looks like a good wealth of resources.

Thank you Mr. Director. I'm starting to get familiar with the website. It was very overwhelming at first without knowing where to click.
Talk to you soon.

@Xenolith,
Welcome! We do get together on a fairly regular basis. We tend to meet up on the 3 Sunday of the month and are just, within the last couple of months, starting to knock the covid dust off of everything. Feel free to message me your number if you would like to be added to our text thread. I look forward to meeting you!
Troy
