Sorry I have been quiet for a while. Our family made the big move from IL to AZ. It was quite a job! We moved to a mountain town about 1 1/2 hours from Phoenix and about 1 hour south of Flagstaff. The town that has 4 mild seasons & is called Prescott.

The main reason for our move was that Sloan my youngest riding buddy suffers from major eczema. The midwest climate made him suffer to the point of tears. After the move here he has cleared up & is so happy that he can like most other boys enjoy life without pain!



Prescott AZ is a outdoorsman's paradise. You can drive you ATV via the road to any trail system. And trails there are!!! Never ending and the views are to die for. Here they do not groom trails meaning you heart will skip a beat or three with the many challenges that await you! Not to mention all the old abandoned mines in our area!



This is a perfect area to test product for us. No more having to tow our ATV's 5 hours to get to the trails. Now we just jump on and go! Our main call center & warehouse is still in McHenry IL. I have a small office here & can be reached as usual by just calling 815-321-388 & asking for Thor.

We have been posting videos of some of our rides on our product testing page on the shop site. This is truly a amazing place to test the products we sell. Here is the video link --> Videos of our rides.

So if you are planing a visit to our area give me a call or pm me. I will be more then happy to share the many thousands of mile of trails that we have right our our front door as well as just 1 hour away in Sedona! And remember if you have any questions on product that we sell give me a call at 815-321-3888. Since we are hands on we know & use the products we sell.

Have a great weekend!

Thor

I had to look up what eczema was. Damn that looks miserable. Glad an environment change can help him. I grew up in Iowa playing in the woods and never got poison ivy until I was in my early twenties. From there out it was a guarantee every summer. Moved away and never had it since.
Is your area in Arizona cool enough you can ride summer time also? I so wish Colorado was road legal. We could link so many trail systems by this.

Yes we were soooo excited when he cleared up. We came this summer and noticed a change in Sloan. We came for a week but after seeing changes in his skin we decided to stay and see how much it would really help if any? After 6 weeks we had to get back to IL. He was almost perfect by then. As soon as we returned, within just a few days the breakout started again. That is when I told my wife enough is enough & I flew back to Prescott to start the process to move.

Weather here is incredible. Winters get snow but it melts in a day or two. After snow the sun come out and you are able to walk around with just a sweater on. Summers are mild. We are about 5800 feet. Nights are in the 50 - 60's and days are mid 70's to mid 90's with no humidity. You can ride here all year long yes & use of a home AC is very little vs the humid stickiness of the Midwest.

Here are some more pics of recent trips.

Here is a rock home we found in Ash Fork AZ.





This picture is taken only 4 miles from our home. Views are to die for!



One really BIG TREE!

Congrats on the move. My best friends mother had the same thing and they had to move out to Arizona and lived out there when he was younger and then they moved to Oklahoma which was The closest east she could go. Great pics by the way.

Congrats on the move! Prescott is a beautiful place, the only area in AZ that I ever liked. Good to hear his eczema is better, it's a painful lifelong battle.
