Our lives have been non-stop since the first of February, the start of our “season.” I don’t expect it to slow down any now that we are in the off-season, but it will definitely change.
Today, I am incredibly grateful for all that I have been given in this life. The people, the action, the attitudes, the lifestyle, the combination of all of it. I love my life. Over the weekend, we had 80 entries in our final event of the season. We ended our Dirt Riot series with a fantastic weekend in Bridgeport, Texas. Two weeks ago, we ended our WE Rock season with a competition among all the best rockcrawlers of the nation in Cortez, Colorado. We threw Off-Road Expo in Pomona, California in the middle of those. It has been a whirlwind, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
The people are the best, every where we go, I think “These are my favorite.” And then we go to the next place and I think, “no, these are my favorite.” And then we get them all together and I know, “Yep, these are my FAVORITE!” These folks are incredible, there are some who step in no matter what needs done; others you can take a minute to catch up and feel like you’ve not been apart at all. There are dogs that know us, there are kids that high-five us; when the teams get to the podium they are always good to thank us. I wish they understood that it is us who are grateful; us who should be thanking them. Without this great family of racers, wives, kids and dogs; without them, we’ve got nothing. Everyday we strive to do our best so that they can enjoy their race experience. We are so thankful for all of them.
