Just moved to the Columbus, Mississippi area and am severely dissapointed. I come from the Seattle area, where there is unlimited offroading and many many clubs. This is a beautiful area here with plenty of opportunity for wheeling. I figured with all of the rednecks and trucks around here, that there would be lots of people into doing a little offroading......NOT! Just try and find anything about offroading in Mississippi, let alone a club. It's driving me nuts! Is there anyone out there who knows anyplace or anyone who likes to actually use their offroad rigs for what they were made for in Mississippi? Or is everyone just into making pretty, jacked up trucks that they are afraid to scratch?????? HELP
Try writing to some of the national magazines. I remember years ago Dirt Wheels (an ATV magazine) published truck and ATV clubs in each state. Perhaps one of the truck magazines do the same thing? I don't know, I don't subscribe to them. But I'd try writing to the editors anyway.
I'm just saying this because where I'm from we had two such things, we had a chapter of Jeepsters in town and a truck club 15 minutes away that I had never even heard of.
Just to set the record straight, I seem to have offended some people with the "redneck" comment. I did not mean to do that at all. I have friends from Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia that all refer to themselves as rednecks and are proud to do it. Please don't take me wrong, I love it in the south, but am just a little bit frustrated.
