Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive F.A.Q.

What's up, you say? This is what's up!

Q: How much is it to join PV4WD for 1 Year?

A: The annual membership for PV4WD.Com is $40 for a single user, $10 for the Passenger if they would like their own Forum Board log in, $20 for Prospects. The membership is for 1 calendar year, from January to December. 

Q: I don't live in Penobscot County.  Can I still join the club?

A: PV4WD.Com is a Jeep club based in Central Maine.  We do have members from outside this area and all across North America, however most events will happen within an hour's drive of the greater Bangor/Brewer area.

 ** updated - 10.03.2015 ** we now have members all over the US and Canada, if you would like to join us please feel free to create a profile

Q: I don't drive a Jeep.  Can I still join the club?

A: We are a Jeep club.  This includes all makes, years and models of Jeeps.  Many of the trails we frequent are designed specifically to work with a Jeep's compact footprint.  Larger vehicles may be cool, but they just won't fit where we ride and don't typically have the reduced impact on the environment that PV4WD wishes to support!

Q: Where does all the money raised from club dues and stickers go to?

A: The Club has a checking account at a local bank specifically used only for PV4WD-relevant expenditures/income.  All income from the club is deposited directly into this account. Your dues and payment for stickers go to cover not only the cost of operating the website and allowing bandwidth but also paying for the bulk purchase of the stickers themselves.  Other outlets for the club's finances are being discussed constantly and as things arise, supporting members will vote on any spending.

The administrators of this club and site reserve the right to modify these guidelines at any time and without notice.  While any major chances will most likely be announced publicly, be sure to check the FAQ thread if any questions arise.  If the FAQ does not answer a question you have, please email an administrator at  admin@pv4wd.com.  Thanks!
