Bill Burke of BB4WA.com inPhoeix at end of January

Phoenix area SMB 4X4 owners!! Bill Burke will be in town at end of January, 2015 (29 or 30) and has some time available to run a SMB trip in the desert around our area. we would need to have three or four vans assembled, and we could do a trip of 2-3 days. If you haven't taken a course or been on a trip with Bill, the experience is educational, informative, fun, and truly awesome. Bill is one of the premier teachers of how to drive off road, and is highly sought after by government, military, and just plain folks. Check out his website at bb4wa.com

I don't know yet how much Bill would charge for setting up the route and leading the trip, but if you are interested, let me know through the forum, and I will set it up.

It would be great for me to meet some of the other SMB owners in the area anyway, so even if you aren't interested, contact me anyway.

BlackMagic.

I would be interested. But, would have to be over the weekend as vacation time is limited.

Would love to, and I've taken 3 or 4 trips with Bill over the last 12 years or so, but I'm swamped with all kinds of things at work, and I don't even own an SMB anymore.

BTW, if you look at my avatar pic, that's Bill with his hands raised spotting me in my Bronco up that hill.

Here's one of his videos not long after I crested that hill. You can see my Bronco at about the 1:55 mark of the video.

Yea, we seriously need to step up our peer pressure game to guilt you back into the fold…
