Bucket List. Everyone has one, the things you want to do before you kick the bucket. (If you don’t have one, please get started now!!) Years ago, I changed the name of mine to be a Life List, I’m not so worried about getting things done before I die, but more inclined to want to experience things to enhance my life. That’s what new experiences are to me, an enhancement, the creation of a memory.
My husband, Rich, checked a big one off his Bucket list this past weekend. He raced at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Now, he didn’t actually race behind the wheel, that’s not what we do, but he did hold a race in the Big House and he got the run of the place. He drove the grounds all week and spent time on the track, running down Turn One in a John Deere, running across the track to retrieve a tire, flagged from the flag stand. He did it all, but most importantly, held a successful event at the biggest off-road motorsports track in the nation.
For 45 years, Crandon has been making history, and now we are a part of that history. As a team, we got to be part of the Super Challenge Offroad weekend, Dirt Riot, MORR, the sand drags and mud bog were all held on the same weekend. So happy to have been invited, it was a great week. I know for Rich is was a highlight in his career as an offroad promoter, and I know it won’t be the last. He works so hard for so many, and has no idea how many appreciate his efforts. I am so proud of him.
