Have You Heard of NORRA?


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


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.
