Bring the kids
Children have always been a part of TDS family activity, and some of the those former youngsters are now sharing this outdoor experience with their own off springs. That says a great deal about the cohesiveness and quality of the club when it’s leadership is extended into a second and third generation of the club’s members.
That is a wonderful aspect of Tierra Del Sol where so many different personalities can work together, as in the Safari, and form close personal relationship even though we have seen one another at their worst, sunburned, dirty, mad, disgruntled, embarrassed, worried, and bone tired: and yet we can still laugh, share stories of our problems and look forward with anticipation to the next set of experiences on a trail. That is friendship at its best and exemplifies TDS- Past and Present!
Politics were not part of the 4-wheeling in the 60s
but the hints of governmental trail closure and restrictions were beginning to grow.
Off-roading policies at state and national levels are now serious concerns in preserving what we once took for granted. In spite of these problems TDS has never been more active, nor scheduled such an abundance of runs per month with more individual volunteerism.
