Default 50 Years of Off-Roading

50 Years of Off-Roading

Reflecting on lessons learned and our outdoor future

By Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador

The bikini clad Rock Zombie girls were all over my Jeep giving it the wash job of its life as I sat perched on my roof rack marveling at 50 years of off-roading. They were raising money for landuse, so Iím always in for a good cause. What really hurt, though was realizing the combined age of any two of the girls did not equal my number of years of trails and dirt roads!

I guess you could say Iíve seen it all. Iíve lived in 16 states and been shot at in 3 countries. Iíve logged 140,000 miles on my Jeep over the last 13 years of concentrated landuse wheeling; and it ainít over yet!

With the sun shining and the suds aĎflying, I reflected on what I learned in those many years of backcountry adventures. From that, Iíd like to offer you some tips that may help you prevent a stumble or misstep in your off-roading, and help us keep our outdoor sports healthy and alive.

Those five decades have included everything from dune buggies to dirt bikes to four-by-fours. Iíve used motors to do things like hunting, fishing, backpacking, exploring, geocaching, rock hounding, four-wheeling, and just plain relaxing. From those adventures over time, I have condensed those lessons into the 5 ďMís.Ē

Thanks, Del
