Let me preface this by letting you know that I am not an Officer of this club. I am a Supporting Member and an appointed member of the NEXterra Events Committee (means I give my stupid opinion when asked and lead an event once in a while). NEXterra is not a commercial enterprise, no one is making money or getting paid in any way. NEXterra (North East Xterra Club) is a Nissan Xterra based off-road club in the north eastern United States. NEXterra was formed from the merger of the New England Xterra Club and the Upstate New York Xterra Club in 2005. The merger created one of the largest Xterra clubs in the United States boasting over 450 members, including 40 dues paying “Supporting Members”, and a large, active email list. The goal of NEXterra is to help Xterra owners in the Northeast get to know each other, exchange information on where to wheel, help each other out with modifications and plan 4×4 off-roading trips. While it is primarily about taking the Nissan Xterra off-road, it welcomes stock Xterra owners to join the club as well, so that they can take advantage of the forum. NEXterra leads or has been involved with one or two off road events each month for the last ten years making it one of the most active off-road clubs in the USA. A number of events require Membership to wheel on private land, a land fee or Supporting Membership however all events (but one, ECXC) are open to all makes of 4WD vehicles. There is a core of folks that attend more of these runs than others so you might feel intimidated to join in. Let me assure you, these folks are all looking out for you, your truck and your good time. There are four “Major Club Runs” per year. The Northen eXposure Run in January. The April Fools Run in April (duh). The Xterra Only East Coast Xterra Challenge (ECXC) in July at Rausch Creek. And The Back 2 School Run (B2SR) in September. These are supplemented by a Halloween Night Run in November and a Toys for Tots Run in December. In addition there are many ”Regional Runs”, Meet & Greets, Mod Days and “Supporting Member Runs” (open to NEXterra Supporting Members only). If you own an Xterra, a Nissan or any 4WD vehicle, live in the North-East and have any thoughts of taking your truck off road you should do yourself a favor and check out NEXterra, attend a NEXterra event and maybe become a Supporting Member!.
