Behind the shop the land lord is filling in a riven, so he can pave paradise and put up a parking lot. But in the minds of little boys with really cool toys, the piles of dirt are the dunes of Little Sahara, Moab’s Elephant Hill, or a Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR) short-course.

For those keeping up with the program, Mark is in the Pollux Orange FJ Cruiser and LT brought out the big dog, his OD, 76 FJ40 running on Propane.

The guys were patient with me and helped me get up and down the hills… Who knew these things had a second gear for running up the hills. Thanks guys for all the fun in the dirt, I’ll have my mom call your mom and see when we can play next.
