Race chatter broadcast over the radio as dust clouds, whipped up by a fierce wind, rolled across Means Dry Lakebed and through a sea of motorhomes, race trailers, and circus-style tents. In the distance, two thin ribbons of dust swirled off the Southern California desert floor like wing-tip vortices from an F-18 on the hard deck. It was Robby Gordon, hot on the tail of Shannon Campbell and running flat-out...

I first caught wind that 2010 would mark the Hump-N-Bump"s 30th anniversary from a post on the Off-Road Adventures Facebook page (check out the fan posts and contests at: facebook. com/ORAmagazine). The timing was perfect, and after four days wandering through fifteen miles of off-road gear at the SEMA show, we decided the Bump would be a great way to round off a week...

Several hundred vendors show up for the trade show on Thursday and Friday where you could buy everything from drivelines to fuel cells. 4 Wheel Parts brought their semi trailer stuffed with gear, and the crowd kept their sales guys busy for most of the day.

The 4 Wheel Parts Canfield Truck and Jeep Fest last July was a premier event and we hope you enjoyed the coverage in the November issue.

  When it comes to emissions, it has been said that as California goes, so goes the nation. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets national vehicle pollution standards.

Our quest to reach Venezuela’s Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world, continues. In Part II we had to turn our Jeep YJ and Toyota FJ80 back due to mud, flat tires and being too wide for the track. We’d left the rigs at an airstrip in the frontier town of La Paragua and chartered a Cessna 206 to fly us to a remote grass strip in the middle of nowhere...

The pilot set his plane down atop Auyan-tepui in 1937, he was looking to find gold, not to have his name immortalized forever by a waterfall. Angel, a former WW1 fighter pilot turned Barnstormer, with Charles Lindbergh’s Flying Circus, turned hard-drinking adventurer, had found gold 13 years before atop a tepui somewhere in the jungles of southeastern Venezuela. The problem was, he could never find the mountain again, though he spent the rest of his life trying...

When we left off last month, Photojournalist Chris Collard had floated off at midnight with several shady characters in a curiara (dugout canoe) in search of crocodiles, while I tried out sleeping in a hammock under the roof of a churuata (wall-less sleeping hut) to the sound of scurrying scorpions. To know what the heck we’re doing here, you really gotta read last month’s Part I. Meanwhile, here in Part II, our trip to Angel Falls, the world’s highest waterfall, continues...

Australia has countless miles of dirt roads, some close to civilization and, of course, tons of them in the remotest of wilderness. The government has been talking about paving them all over the years. We hope this never happens as it would take a lot of the adventure away from Down Under...

We had left the vast, remote lands of the west and centre behind us; upon reaching the east coast, we would travel through the most populated areas of Australia. More than two thirds of the country's twenty million people live along the eastern shoreline. It's a huge country, though, and we still had plenty of wilderness to explore...

Cresting the hill at the entrance to the 15,000 acre Paragon Adventure Park in Hazelton, PA, you peer over the lush-green valley ahead and it becomes apparent why the Mid-Atlantic Early Broncos club has held its "East Coast Bronco Roundup" here for four years running, including their 7th annual event in June 2005. One look over the parking area is proof of this event's popularity as dozens of 1966-1977 Broncos make their way to the staging area. Rigs range from modified to super modified, some requiring a trailer to arrive for this event...

AS THE WINTER MONTHS SEEM TO STRETCH ETERNALLY WITH GRAY SKIES AND RAIN, we automotive writers find ourselves spending too much time in front of our computer, and not enough time out on the trail. We call it editorialitis, and we usually don't realize we are afflicted until we notice a tire long-flat and thick layer of dust on the steering wheel of our favorite wheeling rig (which was put away clean). That's when we know we need to get out of town...

As the 2007 Easter Jeep Safari (EJS) rolled around this year, we decided to add something different.

We began our 1000-mile joy ride in the same location as the 1967 Mexican 1000 opening ceremonies; Tijuana's bull fighting arena. Known by locals as La Frontera, the land beyond Baja California's tourist zone is more than the desolate wasteland one might imagine from the window of a jumbo jet. It is a wild yet inviting place of remote pueblos, centuries old Jesuit missions, rustic cantinas and some of Mexico's most historic hotels...

You couldn't have asked for a more dramatic finish to the Championship Off Road Racing season: heroic competition, a beautiful girl in distress, and going out in a blaze of flame. The old expression about "the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat" hardly does justice to this exhilarating form of off-road racing. Before cutting to the hard action, let's set the stage, looking at the CORR season overall...

THE IDEAstarted months before the competition took place. Could a few show truck boys from a 4 Wheel Parts store compete with some of the best custom 4WD fabricators in the Midwest?
