1/7/2023: 13th Annual Holiday Party Trail Ride BBQ Gift Exchange Cookie Contest: near Nothing, AZ: 4x4 Easy It's time for Offroad Passport's Annual Holiday party after the Holidays! Join us for an easy trail ride and big time fun with your Offroad Passport friends! We'll be grilling burgers & dogs for a potluck lunch, plus there's the infamous cut-throat white elephant gift game, kids gift exchange, and the annual cookie contest (and judging, yummy)! We're returning to Nothing, AZ again this year, with an easy desert trail ride to see some neat mining ruins before the party starts! Meet-up: 9:30 AM at Nothing, AZ (an hour north-west of Wickenburg). Map link here... Note there's literally nothing there (just a dirt pull-out), so fuel up & stock up on the way (in Wickenburg for most of you). Trail Info: Easy 4x4 trail with a couple small obstacles (see here for more info...). A high clearance street-legal 4x4 is required. We'll run the trail to visit some mining ruins and then head back out closer to Nothing for the actual party. We should be airing up back at Nothing by mid-afternoon.

untilAt my company's annual gathering this week, we spent part of one day volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in Mesa. We all had so much fun at the event, and I felt that the impact of our efforts was so meaningful, that I've reserved a time for Offroad Passport members to volunteer some time. The event entails getting checked in 'Covid style' (i.e.: temp check, mask, ect.,) listening to a short orientation, and then working together as a team to fill, seal, and pack as many packages of Manna Pack meals as we can. The FMSC team replenishes food bins and supports the teams throughout, as well as playing some nice loud rock-and-roll to help get everyone pumped! It's a fun and fast-paced 1.5 hours of production. Kids over 5 years old (accompanied by an adult) are welcome, are fully able to participate, and will enjoy the experience. What: Packaging meals for kids in need, worldwide. Where: Feed My Starving Children, 1345 S. Alma School Rd., Mesa AZ 85210 When: Saturday, June 19, 2021 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM (Please arrive 10 - 15 mins early so that we may gather our group). About FMSC: FMSC provides everything needed, and has honed the volunteer process to a precision 'T'. All you need to bring is yourself! FMSC offers volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world.

New Years Day a few of us got together to follow @theksmith around in the desert, exploring some trails and washes on his side of town. It was one of those "If we can drop down into this wash, I think it will take us all the way to the road over there..." kind of days. BTW, the wash did go through. It was a nice relaxing day of sunshine, tunes, and rocks. I needed it. Along for the ride were @Number7 & @scottL. All my photos are here: Diane's Google Photos
