Trip Advisor Review: Michael G. – 5 star June 2016 “Beginner Class” & “Advanced Skills Training (2 Classes)”
“I traveled to NORA twice in June for two separate classes. Both classes were awesome. Scott and Jon and all the other trainers are extremely knowledgable. The trails that Butch, Rich, George cut through the 68 acre site are challenging as well as a blast! I would HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone who wishes to learn about driving through different off road terrain. Well worth the small tuition. It was the most fun I have ever had with my clothes on !!!
FB Review: Sharon G. – 5 star May 2016 “Beginner Class” & “Advanced Skills Training (2 Classes)”
“After being a passenger at a Jeep Jamboree last year, I decided I’d rather be driver! My husband and I chose to sign up for NORA’s beginner class to learn the right way to off-road, and it was the best decision we ever could have made! The small group and one on one attention allowed us to learn and really understand how we can have a great time while keeping ourselves and our vehicles safe. It was such a wonderful experience we decided to stay an extra day for the advanced class. I’m looking forward to more wheeling with NORA! They are a fantastic group!”
Trip Advisor Review: Steve M. – 5 star May 2016 “Beginner Class”
My wife and I took the beginner class and it was a great introduction to off roading. I have a Jeep Wrangler and my wife a Jeep Renegade. We learned a ton about our vehicles and how to get the most out of them. Scott and his crew could not have been more friendly and accommodating. They were very knowledgable, patient, and with us every step of the way. It was a great day in the woods and there’s no question that we will do it again.

Very experienced, passionate, friendly and knowledgeable guys that really know their stuff and make it really fun to learn. The trails and obstacles are fantastic and the jeeps top notch. One of the best adventuring experiences I have been on. Overall, we had a tremendous time, learned a ton and will be back for more. Two thumbs up for NORA!”
