Rick Fleming

Mapping Crew - Nevada

I am relatively new to 4-wheeling having just recently been bitten by the the bug. In the last 3 years I have been on the trails every chance I could. In 2015 I bought my first Jeep, a new JK Unlimited Sahara and since then have spent most of my free time exploring the deserts of the southwest. Usually I travel alone with just Zack, my Golden Retriever, as a companion.

I have spent most of my life as an oceanographic surveyor working and living in many regions across the globe. Now that I am semi-retired I enjoy exploring the remote areas of the American southwest. I am constantly amazed at the natural beauty and rich history of the region. Ghost towns, old mines, and abandoned ranches are all, to me, valuable reminders of our shared past. Every time I am on a challenging section of an old mining road I wonder how difficult it would have been for the early men and women who first blazed the trail. Then, after contemplating the hardships they must have endured, I turn on the air conditioning and crank up some tunes.

Having grown up on the coast of southern California my new home in Las Vegas has opened up endless opportunities to explore and generally just play in the desert.
