TAP Tour (TAPT) Update September 25

AZ and NV Clubs and Friends,
Update on the Del & Stacie Albright Trail Access Partnership Tour (TAPT) to Southern AZ/NV in November.

JOIN US for the fun, the adventure and the landuse!

Our TAP Tour will take us from SEMA to Hump ‘n Bump in Logandale, NV, to Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City, AZ, then to Parker AZ for Desert Splash with the Parker 4Wheelers. PLEASE consider this an open invitation to join us physically or virtually.  We’ll be blogging and posting up on Facebook and blogs our entire Tour, website here at http://www.trailaccesstour.com/

Rick Pewe from Petersen’s 4Wheel & Offroad will joining us on the Tour and covering the adventure.  We are teasing Rick that this might be the Ultimate Adventure of Landuse.  (smile).  Denis Snow of Off Road Adventures (ORA) Magazine will also cover the story.  ORA as you know is the magazine of 4Wheel Parts.   Both these editors/publications are huge supporters of landuse and keeping our outdoor sports alive.   

We will have some awesome business partners joining us along the way, and at the organized events: T&T Customs; Nemesis Industries; Trail-Gear; Daystar; Olympic4x4 Products; Raceline Wheels; GenRight Off Road; Dave’s Customs Unlimited; and others…

Our first real stop is to cruise SEMA most all week, the hit Hump ‘n Bump with the Vegas Valley 4Wheelers on Thursday night, to run their organized trails Friday and Saturday. 

Sunday we will mosey down to Bullhead City, AZ, to stay a couple nights in the Mojave County Parks Davis Camp RV Park (hopefully space C2). Sunday and Monday nights are “open campfire” time where we can hook up, talk landuse, talk about saving your trails, learning more about AZ issues, whatever comes to mind.  We are YOUR BlueRibbon Coalition reps, so bring us the “news” good and bad.  Let’s work together to see what BRC can do more for you.  We will be doing some local area sight-seeing and area orientation as well.

Tuesday afternoon we’ll pull into Lake Havasu City, AZ (looking for an RV park for the night) and have another “open campfire” where ever we are.  Wednesday we’d like to spend time with local clubs and folks who can get away from work to tell us about the area and what BlueRibbon Coalition can do to keep this awesome area open.

Wednesday night we’ll pull into the La Paz County Park in Parker, AZ to prep and get ready for the Desert Splash with the Parker 4Wheelers the rest of the weekend.

At both Hump ‘n Bump and Desert Splash we will have a BRC booth, so please join us at these great events and support the clubs, as well as BRC.

Article on Tips for Using CB Radios

Landuse and access article for your use in motorized recreation friendly publications, newsletters and websites:
The Secrets of Successful CB Communications, by Del & Stacie Albright
Making Memories Instead of Headaches.
Many of us use CB’s to conduct our events and convoys in the off-road world.  And I think it’s safe to say that Stacie and I probably attend as many events as anyone in our motorized world.  But for sure I can tell you that CB communication is probably the most ignored and ill-tended part of any convoy or event out there! 
We’ve had more bad than good experiences with CB’s.  However there are some secrets and tips that will help you be the best you can be on the CB.  Get the entire article and learn how to make CB’s a better part of our off-road life here: http://www.delalbright.com/Articles/cb_radio.html in either Adobe or WORD.
