Have You Heard of NORRA?

NORRA1

I had not heard of NORRA.  But with a pic like this and a great story to match, I couldn’t help but pay attention.

NORRA is the National Off Road Racing Association, and (I now know) was established in 1967.

I have just recently developed an interest in off-road racing and stumbled across news of NORRA and the Mexican 1000 as a result.

I highly recommend checking out their site Here.  Be sure not to miss the intro video with some amazing vintage deserts racing rigs and characters.

Trail Report – Middle St Vrain and Coney Flats

P8160120

I’m happy to report that Middle St Vrain and Coney Flats are as scenic and enjoyable (and busy) as ever.  We headed up with 3 trucks, 3 adults, and 4 kids, to enjoy a day of sunshine and high mountain air.

The ‘wheelin was excellent with good challenges and no breakage.  The kids also did well, with no injuries and only 2 tumbles into the creek…

Road Trip Report – Moab

For reasons too numerous to mention, Moab is still very close to the top of my list of favorite places on earth.

I recently had the opportunity to pass through on a business trip (really, I was working) and enjoy some warm weather wheelin’.  I even had the benefit of having Spinny along for entertainment and slave labor.

We enjoyed a blurry night out among the locals, followed by a near-epic day of ‘wheelin that included Klondike Bluffs, Gemini Bridges, and a section of Gold Bar Rim.

The Nismo performed admirably and I finally got to feel the benefit of all the upgrade$.  Proof that I didn’t do it for looks.

Non 4×4 highlights included dino tracks, desert/mountain goats, blooming prickly pears, and the usual canyon country scenery.  Photographic evidence follows.
