have you checked out DeJA?
yes, it is the Delaware
Jeep Ass'n, but they are great people and don't really care if you are from DE or not. i'm from PA (also Montco) and i am Assistant Trail Boss. the club is really nice to newbies regardless of experience - in fact, we are always promoting the sport, and even hold a 'Jeep 101' every April. there are lots of really knowledgeable members - ask a technical question and i guarantee you will get a helpful answer, with none of the mocking or condescension that goes on in other forums.

we have club runs every month - and these are REAL club runs that people actually attend. i've been wheeling for years and my biggest frustration is with clubs that talk about a trip for weeks and have people drop out one-by-one until nothing happens.
we just had a club run this past saturday (a small group because it's winter). you can read about it here: Deja January 15th Raush Creek Ride

. yes, every one of these events will actually happen.
if you have any reticence about being a PA resident in a DE club, just mention my name.
