What's up, y'all? It's getting near the end of May at the time I'm writing this, and I'm about to head up to Yankee Lake's big Memorial Day weekend event. That's always a legit time. Since the last time I wrote we've been a few places, like Louisiana Mud Truck Madness, Illinois South Fork Dirt Riders, OhioTugfest. That's not all, just keep reading! We also hit Tennessee for an ECORS high-speed off-road endurance race. We've done some mud and diesel events at Big Lick and had the Dirty Mo Season Opener and the Big Dixie Boggers event, which is like a legit manmade rock/trail riding type of setup with some rowdy high-powered rock buggies. Heck, my bro Andy and I also did another side project: We covered the Burn Neon Music Festival, a really a legit time. It's always great getting outside the box when we can. Diversification can be a beautiful thing.
The Yukon Gear & Axle Throttle King Series is going off. Always cool seeing trucks being pushed to their limits and checking out the new ones everywhere we go. If you got a rig, make sure to ask me about how to get in on the Yukon Gear & Axle Racer Incentive/Sponsorship Program either on Facebook or at your local event.
We still have the same big goals trying to get this stuff on TV. I am going to start restructuring my online store and bang out a bunch of new 4x4Cross shirt designs I've had building up. It's way long past due for both of those things.
By the way, if you follow me on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or here in the mag you know I am all about pushin' the limits and going hard when and where others won't, so I'll leave you with this: Don't let the negatives weigh you down. When you screw up on something, don't let it snowball into a train wreck of bad crap for no reason. Learn from your mistakes, stand up, shake it off, and move the #*@% on. Dwelling on the negatives can be hard to avoid sometimes—trust me, I know—but it brings nothing but more negativity with it, so put that stuff behind you.
Anyway, make sure to hit up the YouTube page to see the vids of the insane action, hot chicks, and parties we've had our hand in.
