Ep25 Farewell to a founder and the importance of securing your rig

October 7th, 2019

Al Kodet, Keith's dad, passed away unexpectedly the day after Wheels in the Woods 2019. He was instrumental in getting the Museum of Off Road Adventure open, and supported the growth of the MORA in many ways. We say goodbye, and the circumstances of his death gave us reason to think about the security of our rigs.  

What are you doing to keep your rig from getting stolen? How about things taken from your open-top Jeep? This is the episode to listen to for those answers.

Ep24 Wheels in the Woods Recap

September 30th, 2019

Wheels in the Woods 2019 is in the books! 

Keith and Johnny Orange wind down after the show, along with special guest Ed Henry. Ed is a longtime friend of both hosts, and also an avid Wheelin' listener who won several awards at this year's show with his wild custom-built sandrail.

During the show this year, we interviewed several of the attendees about their rigs and experiences to air on Wheelin'. 

Ed stuck around for our aftershow, called "The End of the Trail" which can only be found at https://www.patreon.com/join/wheelinradio. During the show, Chad from www.quickdrawbrand.com happened to call, so we patched him right in. It was meant to be, because Ed happened to win a QuickDraw R2.8 AX15 bellhousing at the raffle. So, for the first time, we had four voices on the show.
