It’s always good to get together with friends to have some fun, but even better if you do so to benefit those in need. On April 23rd the Christian Off-Road Association got together and held our 3rd annual Flex 4 Food. Our first one 3 years ago was a learning experience. Last year was an improvement, and this year was just plain awesome. The idea of Flex 4 Food is to have people come out with their rigs, run them up an RTI ramp, as well as a log jam and rock pile. We’ve had people come out .... more>
|So often today, travel has become a utilitarian task, often perceived as a necessary evil used only as a means to connect vacationers to their chosen destinations, complete with high cost, long lines, and countless complaints along the way.

|Calvary 4-Wheelers met after church Sunday, June 5 for a quick afternoon trip to Miller Rock, near Lyons, CO. We had done most of this trail a couple years ago when the all-church camp out was held nearby at Glacier View Camp. There was one particular branch of the trail where we had turned around at a particularly hard obstacle that I wanted a second chance at. It turned out to be just myself in my Cherokee and my brother, Richard in his Pinz. We met in Lyons and headed up the canyon to the little community of Raymond and the trail head. more>|
Spring is here, and with the warm weather it’s time to get out of the house and hit the trails. Memorial Day weekend we headed out to the state park at Mt. Magazine to do some trail exploration. Mt.
