There used to be a good 20 or so of us in Utah, but I am afraid it's just me now.

Not much around me for offroading aside from level B/C dirt/mud roads.

It irritates everyone and too many people know who my trucks belong to do that recreationally.

I go on 7 to 10 day off-road trips a couple times each year with groups ranging from 3 to 7 vehicles. Various people on these trips are from all over the country. I am from California and three others are also from CA. I have travelled with four from Texas, four from New Mexico, one from Colorado, one from Idaho, one from Washington, one from Oregon, one from Ohio, one from Georgia, one from New York and one from PA.
Most of our trips are in the West (Colorado to Pacific Coast and Mexico border to the Canada border). I don't know if that sways the statistic but the location of the people I travel with don't agree with your map.

I think the intent is of active TRS members that go offroading.

I tend to agree, there are a lot of people on here are from out east around Ohio/Penn area. And then out on the west coast.

OK, I missed that. If I list only 4X4 Rangers that go on these off-road trips, it would be me and one other in CA, one in Georgia and one in New York. If I list only the ones that are still active in TRS, I can only list me. Two have gone to Toyotas and one to a F-150. That is primarily due to Rangers no longer being available after 2011.
