    Study says BLM land visitors prefer quiet recreation

    My comment on the above website: Interesting. There were more than 353,000 UTV's sold in NA in 2013, representing more than 5 billion in sales - that is UTV original sale alone, folks. Not arguing the value of non-motorized recreation - which I enjoy ... but I'm hoping the source data for this...

    Is legitimate Live Coverage of a Point to Point race possible...I think so...time to find out

    Dave, I love the way you guys manage to integrate technology with low level creativity. I've been thinking for a while how to use a vehicle-to-vehicle 'swarm' to be able to pass off data up and down a race course. The nerf? That is elegance in engineering right there.

    New Kit Class for Desert Racing

    First, thanks for all your effort to make this class work. I'm going to be dumping my buggy program in favor of a truck or jeepspeed - the decision has been made.
