One of the best ways to have more fun 4 wheeling is to improve your skills. I know, you already have your driver’s license, what else is there to learn? It has been said that your education begins once you leave the classroom. 4X4 off-road Meetup groups are a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and bond with people with similar interests.
Here in Colorado, we have several 4 wheeling Meetup groups that are looking for new participants. What a great way to learn something new about driving techniques and your vehicle, while sharing your passion with like minded people.
Here is a list of 5 Meetup groups where you can engage with people who love to drive 4X4 off-road fun.
The primary focus of this group is longer (one or two days) trips with your off-road capable vehicle. Camping is also a big part of this group’s activities. As with most 4X4 Offroad groups, the journey is valued over speed to destination. This group is open to all and they have monthly Meet & Greets so you can get to know the group before committing to an overnight camping adventure.
This group of weekend warriors is looking to get off-road and get dirty. If your 4X4 off-road vehicle has a low range, these folks are waiting to get muddy with you. All levels of experience are invited along with your licensed 4X4 vehicle with a low range transfer case. They offer all kinds of trips from snow to trails to camping and meet & greets. No matter where you are in Colorado, they may have a trip close to you.
