    Default Chris in Littleton driving a stock H3



    I live in Denver with my wife and 2 kids. I ended up buying an old used Hummer H3 last fall, mostly because it was (surprisingly) the cheapest thing with 4-wheel drive available at any of the nearby dealerships, and I needed something that was a little safer to drive in the snow than I'd had so far.

    I figured if I was gonna own a Hummer, I should take it off road from time to time, and from there I've really taken to enjoying off-roading as a hobby and my kids really love it as well!

    I came across this organization by way of someone posting a link in a comment on the r/ColoradoOffroad/ subreddit. I look forward to meeting everyone, and being able to go out on trails with people who at least know what they're doing more than I do.

    Attached is a photo of my vehicle after having come home from Yankee Hill, where I got stuck in a snowdrift and was fortunately (very politely and courteously) taught a lesson about recovery by some helpful gentlemen in a pair of side-by-sides.

    Gentlemen in side by sides? On Yankee Hill?! You've met a unicorn!

    Welcome. Its cool to see diverse rigs in the group, fun to see how they handle the same trails differently.

    People like to hate, but two groups of guys in side by sides helped me dig my G-Wagen out of a snow bank when I got it buried bad. There are friendly folk all over on these trails. They weren't even playing loud music

    Welcome to the club, and cool to see a H3 on the trails
