I think the Pub obviously gets more traffic because a good percentage of the people here want to BS all day and aren't interested in talking about much related to 4x4s.
Personally, I would get more involved with supporting our trails, but I am kind of alone on this side of the state. The people I do wheel with aren't internet types or the public land types. I have been involved in quite a bit of maintenance of private wheeling land over here. I would really like it if the GL members that are over here wanted to be more active and meet up and wheel, or work on trails, or just M&G, but I haven't had the chance to meet any of them yet.
There is a large percentage of the people who might no want to help, but if you make it fun or worthwhile, I think many would join in.
