Tread Lightly! takes on Tierra Del Sol

This weekend, Evan and I joined thousands of off-road enthusiasts in the windy desert of Anzo-Borrego State Park in California. Every year, the Tierra Del Sol Club sees more and more supporters at their Desert Safari and Tread Lightly! was lucky enough to be part of it this year.

Despite the oncoming rainclouds, we set up our booth and met with hundreds of these enthusiasts—all hardworking people who want to have a good time and help us keep trails open. It’s great to see supporters—some who have been part of Tread Lightly! since its inception in late eighties.

We met a woman named Andie, who told us about how she decked out her Jeep in the 90s with our old logo and wanted to grab a new Imageone for her current vehicle.  We talked to Karen, a Tierra Del Sol volunteer who talked of her passion for teaching preschool-age children and grabbed some coloring books to share. We neighbored the Trasharoo booth, where the representative, Dave, told us about how we’re one of their favorite causes to support. This was definitely a crowd that knows their Tread Lightly!.

I’d like to say thanks to the Tierra Del Sol for letting us reach more of the public in the 4-wheel drive community at their event.  Sometimes all it takes is one recreation tip to remind someone that Respected Access is Open Access!
