I’ve worked in automotive, aviation and marine media for more than a decade and written about cars, trucks and the automotive industry for many different outlets, including Automotive News, Forbes, Hagerty Media and WardsAuto. I also write about classic vehicles and love telling the stories of the people, trends and culture that have shaped automobiles and car culture. I’m a lifelong enthusiast who’s owned and worked on scores of vehicles, including my current stable that includes a 1986 Škoda. A native New Yorker, I came to love off-roading after moving to the Pacific Northwest in the late 2000s.
NWAPA Mudfest is an annual media event that puts the latest and greatest SUVs and trucks to the (very muddy) test. Here are 2023’s top dogs.
