“I wanted to send a note letting you know that Rich was phenomenal as an instructor! Although I’ve done plenty of ATV and UTV riding in the past I really hadn’t done any sort of off-roading in a truck, nevertheless in my 4Runner, and with Rich’s guidance I was able to push the boundaries on what I thought was possible. I really have to give it to you and your team. What an incredible setup you have up there; I can see myself signing up for multiple courses over the coming months in an effort to continue to develop my skills and confidence.” – Steve M Jan ’22
