Further Description/Back Story First off, if you put me in your printed mag under readers rides I would absolutely flip!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 45 and have ALWAYS loved RC. My first rig was a Tamiya Fox, then an RC-10 gold-tub. I also currently build 1/700th scale battleship and aircraft carrier models by Tamiya. I have subscribed to your mag for 3 years now. In 2012 a friend of mine let me drive his 3 cell Traxxas Slash and I was re-hooked! I had fun with that for a few years and then in 2018- got a Trail Honcho and love every single minute with it. I built a crawling course in my backyard amongst the natural rocks, including suspension bridge over a little pond and ramps and hill climb etc. I built a scale garage with tons of Bair accessories and lots of Scale by Chris stuff too. I displayed it at scale city at 2019 ProLine BTF. I love crawling whenever and wherever. I especially like going to Vasquez Rocks and a big shout out to Edgar at Crazy Crawlers and Wayne at Tonys Hobbies for getting me into this awesome hobby! Thanks for considering my post in your awesome mag. Peace
