Hello everyone! Obviously I live in Northeast Ohio and I'm interested in joining a tortoise club somewhat close. I live about an hour east of Cleveland and am willing to travel an hour for meetings or gatherings. Just would like to meet people with one of my passions in life. The weather will be warming up here in about 8 weeks and I'm eager to get in my outdoor enclosures and wake my sleeping beauties. Hoping to get advice and talk face-to-face with others who share the same passion for torts. Thanks for looking at my post hope to hear from you.

That's cool, been reading through old forums and it sounds like there's a few users in our area. I'm a little east a Chardon, Ohio right in the snow belt. I would love to get something started just not sure how. Maybe we could get something started in our area. Thanks for the reply.​

Both are relatively close sorry I haven't gotten back. Been out doing snow removal. Odd hours for me. My life revolves around the weather at this time of the year. Although I've decided that this is my last year in the business can't handle these odd hours anymore. It's starting to kick my butt. Still looking forward to meeting other tort owners. Maybe we could pick a place in Chardon and meet sometime and try and organize a tort club. ( I'll make my wife come too even though she doesn't share my passion for torts)

My husband used to snowplow. This winter needs to end!

I'm not sure how many other members are in our area....

I guess this world is going to make me get more involved with social media. Lol I've been fighting it for years. The tortoise forum is the closest thing I use as far as it goes. I'll try checking out those links. Thanks

Looks like they're in Lorain county. Kind of a hike for me. Looks like I'm going to have to get involved with social media lol. The tortoise forum is the closest thing I use. Guess I'm a bit of a dinosaur. Lake, Geuaga, Cuyahoga, or Ashtabula county's would be great for me. And yes I'm so ready for the weather to break. Wanting to take torts out of hibernation and work on outdoor enclosures.
