Resources--Creating Your Own Ultimate Adventure
Bill Burke's Four Wheeling America We learned more in the 72 hours we spent with Bill Burke than in all the other four-wheel-drive training programs we've attended combined. Add his encouraging teaching style, easygoing manner, and sense of humor, and we wish we could take Bill everywhere.www.bb4wa.com ; 970/858-3468.

Sea Quest Kayak Expeditions
