Experience Arizona Partners with Offroad Passport

July 1, 2012

By Matt Marine

I’m excited to announce a new partnership with the Offroad Passport team. Offroad Passport is an online portal for outdoor adventurers. One of its best features is its free community forum. Members are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. There are tons of discussion topics where you can ask questions, find interesting nuggets, see gear reviews or share your own experiences. In addition, they offer exciting backcountry adventures from day trips to overnight expeditions.

The Offroad Passport team isn’t interested in trying to find new ways to break a driveshaft.  They are about the entire experience, from camping, hiking and photography to environmental concerns and community awareness.

I’ve set up a direct link to their website under the News/Forum navigation bar and you’ll be seeing links to specific forum threads on adventure pages and on the new Az Topics page. Check them out; you’ll be glad you did.
