Don't know if it counts or not, but even though my thing says korea, now I'm in Okinawa. As far as offroad here, not much. There is no dezert. Suzuki Samarui's pretty much are the most capable offroad vehicle because the tight trails through the jungle are even to narrow for a yota, but it's all crawlin or as somebody from work today said, "mud riding".

Hi!

My name is Fredrik and I live in sweden, i do not know if it is as far away as Korea, but it is pretty far away. I think it is a 12 hour flight, which is far to long.

I do not remember how I found the site, sometimes you just got to be lucky, I guess? But now I visit the site everyday and have learned alot from reading the forum. For example I got some good tips on parts to buy for my truck. It is a 91 Toyota 4wd truck, which soon will have a Caddy-kit on.

The off-road scene here in sweden is not that big and there are not many places to ride on. I hope I can find some place to ride when my truck is ready!

Thanks

Fredrik

Wow! I'm willing to bet you'll be the only one in Sweden with a TC Caddy kit on your truck! That's pretty damn cool.

Hi

As Mike says, I live in Johannesburg in South Africa, and yes it is a 22-23 hour journey to get to LA.

We have a lively offroad racing scene in South Africa. Our vehicles include buggies, production vehicles as well as the same type of trucks that Nissan race in the Paris- Dakar.

Yes

The jump in my bio pic is from the Victoria falls bridge gorge in Zambia. It was unbelievable.

Im in mexicali,mexico practically SOCA, but for this years San Felipe Code 200 i had 2 copilots from Hamburg, Germany Swen Storcker and Frank Burmeister. They got the ride after A marketimg firm in Hamburg (S&K marketing) that promotes Tequilla Sierra in Germany did an internet and bar contest, where the winner got a trip Hamburg-LA-Mexicali-San Felipe Los Angeles for a week and a ride in el tiburon.. Klaus got sh...t face with them in San Felipe. This was all posible because of a thread posted on this fine fine website regarding riding in a race car for a fee, which caught the eye of one of the exec's of the mkt firm.... We are allready working on next years race... The winners had never seen a baja race bug, had never seen an off road race on Tv, never been in a desert, and had never even been to America !!!

So Hamburg is not so far away, but this webpage got a couple of Germans a trip to San Felipe and hooked on off road racing for good....... THX RDC........

Michigan here.....

While not nearly far enough to win - I might have a chance at the most miles travelled to go to desert races...

I get to travel coast to coast in three days just to head south to Mexico for the 1000. Two years in a row of doing this for one race a year. I'm spitting distance to the Atlantic in Wilmington, NC and will land in San Diego, then get picked up by a team mate at the airport for the ride to Ensenada. Can't wait!

Nickstrix, PM me if you ever head over here to the coast.

OBR184 lives in Western Australia, which is still kind of remote even in our own country.
RaceDezert is a big drawcard just too pick minds on all things offroad. That is how and why i have found the site.
Allways informative!
