“Highly professional – I took the January 18 Off-Road Driving Essentials class. As heavy snow was forecast for the afternoon drive back only one other person attended so it was like having a semi-private class. The instructors – Scott and Rich, were highly knowledgeable and while the emphasis was on safety the on-trail exercises were challenging. I liked the mixture of classroom and on-trail instruction.
As it started to snow around noon the trails became quite slippery but Scott and Rich’s excellent trail spotting got us through the course without mishap. With the slippery trails we also got a lesson in vehicle recovery as the other vehicle needed to use maxtracs multiple times to get traction on a snow covered up slope.
It was fun using the capabilities of my G-class off road-particularly the transfer case and differential locks and the clearance from the portal axles.
I would highly recommend NORA and plan on returning soon for other classes and adventures.” – Charles W. (Trip Advisor) Jan 2020
Overlanding is “self-reliant adventure travel to remote destinations where the journey is the primary goal.” as defined by OverlandJournal.com
NORA partnered with General Tire and Lodestone Events at the 2019 Overland Expo East. Over the 3 day event, our instructors used our rental vehicles on a man-made obstacle course to train over 650 guests on the fundamentals of off-road driving. It was an awesome event, and the majority of our guests had never even driven off-road before!
