The HoboJeepers of Patrol 1 has roots in the Mile-Hi Jeep Club dating back
to the 1960's. In fact, some of our current Hobos were just little kids playing with Hot Wheels when their parents were in Patrol 1 back then. Until the mid 80's, the patrol was active in all types of activities.
Back then, the phrase "stocker" Jeep was common. It was mainly driver skill and finesses that got you thru the tuff stuff, and it was the name of the game then.
Today, a lot has changed, our rigs are better built for the trails, and more rigs are running them. Also, today brings
dwindling public lands to actually run these trails. Get involved with your LAND USE issues in your area. Soon, we'll all be sharing dusty roads with SUV's if we don't take a stand
The term "Hobo" is very similar
to the spirit of a Hobo who "rides the rails" wherever it took him.
We instead, "ride the trails" and bounce around the
mountains in that same exploring spirit.
Recently in 1995, Patrol 1 was re-activated into the
Mile-Hi Jeep Club,
and keeping all of its original traditions. In 1999, marked a year of change and new energetic faces.
We have a limit on membership at 12 members. We
continue to enjoy all kinds of trails in the Rocky
Mountains recently, whether they be scenic or rugged and challenging. We
are an active patrol within Mile-Hi and believe in club participation, as well
as jeeping. Most of our members drive short-wheel based modified
(or planning to modify) Jeeps, and believe in the "Tread Lightly" way
of team four-wheeling with a twist.
We get together and meet at different members houses
throughout the Denver Metro area.
