According to Bill Shapely via Facebook.. "John Calvin from dusty times magazine passed away last night... The off road community lost a great man he will be missed...RIP John..." Stories and pictures would be appreciated... An icon of the finish line and desert racing... From the Dusty Times (History) website: It was 28 years ago that Jean Calvin decided to put her journalistic talents to work in the off road field, in which she had been immersed for many years. Jean was an ice skater with Sonja Heine, had a degree in English History and was always a competitive person, racing sports cars for many years then turning to off road for some real challenges. Off road racing was very different 25 or more years ago. Cars had 3 to 4 inches of travel and it was certainly an adventure to take off into the desert for a 400 mile run, and with the equipment available you were out there racing for a long time, even if nothing went wrong. But, we digress. Jean founded Dusty Times to give the off road races and rallying the attention they deserved, and to this day Dusty Times is still giving the off road community their money's worth. We publish every month. We report on over 20 different off road racing groups and we cover rallying all over the world. Our journalistic staff is second to none and we are proud of our status in the off road community and of our heritage as well. Jean passed away in 1997 after a long and varied career in the off road world. Her husband, John, picked up the reins of Dusty Times and is now the editor and the paper continues to hold the top spot in the off road world. We intend to stay the best for all our readers.
