We just got back from the King of the Hammers, and once again, we were amazed at how many spectators were there. The place was packed! Folks were hanging off of every bush and rock in the Johnson Valley trying to get a better glimpse of the carnage unfolding before them.
The attendance at non-race events has been just as big. The Los Angeles County Fairgrounds was packed for Off Road Expo, and Camp RZR-Glamis was such a success that Polaris held another such event in Huntsville, Tennessee, for the East Coast enthusiasts.
The bottom line is that there are lots of people having lots of fun watching and participating in all things off-road. We are, and we hope that you are too.
What type of off-roading do you do? Go to our website at www.fourwheeler.com and to our Dirt Sports + Off-Road Facebook page and either post a picture of you in your ride at your favorite spot, or tell us all about it.
We’d like to know more spots for off-roading. And we’re pretty sure that others like you would like to know more spots to go as well. Yeah, we know that some of you don’t want to share your spot, because that might mean that more folks will be in your way when you want to go there. But, this is a sport that is more the merrier.
We also want to hear about what your ride is like. What is it and why have you built it the way that you have? This month, we’re beginning a build on Associate Editor Shaun Ochsner’s F-150. He’s building a truck that will be at home off-road and on, and one that can make it to the various photo locations at major off-road races and still be valeted at a nice restaurant.
We don’t really have a “readers’ rigs” section right now, but we’ve been thinking we should. We like to see killer trucks and buggies, and know that others do too. We have even used these shots to decide that we want to do a full feature on them.
So get busy and keep those cell phone cameras clicking.
Until then, have fun, be safe, and we’ll see you next month.
