see, with attitude like that, makes every M&G a flop, no matter whether its SWest Side or MidWest Side of the state! excuses excuses...East siders will drive over an hour for a M&G...and there usually is no less than 20 people that show!

I'm missing the Eastside comraderie!!!

First, everybody on the east side drives an hour to a M&G? Of course they do, it takes an hour to go anywhere on the eastside.

Second, M&G on a wed night? I have a job that puts me in bed early and up early.

Third, the \/\/est side has gone to shit. The fellowship and inpromptu trailrides that use to occur every week have been replaced by life outside of the 4x4 community. Jobs have changed, marrige, children, moving and a butt load of other things have taken their toll on what once was a strong west side.

I would love to make the trip down to kzoo to meet some folks, but I just moved last week and see no free weekends for the next 6-7 weeks.

I hope you make "the new west side" a success. It was never looked on favorably by the "eastside" for whatever reason. We are made out to be second class citizens by the east elite so many don't bother to post anymore.

No offense, Dewey, but a lot of times, the east siders are more open to new people.

{Standing on my soapbox}
Eastsiders are always open to new people, we (its still in my blood) are just looking for a good time and good fellowship, with no borders, or no status...
which in turn has created a psuedo family.

after moving away from the east side, I have heard a repeated perception of the East side..and it seems as if the laid back Westsiders (not just referring to Jeepers) HATE Metro Detroit area/absolutely dread it. I see it daily with my own coworkers.
The perception I have heard over and over is best described by a quote I hear over and over "The state of Oakland" referring to Oakland county, as snobs, (or the "east elite") that we (well, they) are spoiled and demand special attention. While some of this may be true in politics and other areas...it is definatley false when it comes to jeepers....then again, Eastsiders may do things different...comraderie and helping a fellow jeeper is a priority over there. They are also able to include families/jobs/lives in the mix.
When I need someone to look at my jeep, or give advice, or problem solve, I seem to have nowhere to turn but back to my fellow comrads on the east side. I've tried to get help over here...but I guess a helpful hand or even an ear are not priority around these parts.
I understand families and careers get in the way...its sure gotten in the way of my wheelin', and it happens...

So this is one of my last attempts to build a comraderie/Jeep family on the SOUTHWest side.
if not, I guess Westside just can't do it like the Eastside can! {said snobby in a sarcastic sense> with an 'elite' undertone}
