This is by no means an exhaustive list; I will miss acknowledging some people, and for that I am sorry!
2020 was a trying year and, like others, it has been a tough journey! Below is a short list of our friends (in no order) that have helped us grow and made 2020 much more bearable! THANK YOU for your help, love, and support! We're wishing everyone a better 2021!
Michelin USA @michelinusa
For a few years now, we've been a licensee with the outstanding folks at Michelin USA. They're known for performance tires as well as fine dining!
Lightforce USA @lightforce_usa
A few years ago we spoke to the team at Lightforce about helping us outfit the Wagan LX470 with some lighting; they sent us daylight!
When this whole Covid thing kicked-off, Lee at Solve Function was looking for a way to build PPE safety masks and get them into the hands of healthcare professionals in need; we hooked up with him and used our channels to make it happen.
Mario has been a long-time friend of ours. For a few years now, he has been testing, evaluating, and giving feedback on our products; he is one of best Brand Ambassadors!
This guy is one of those who seems to know everybody that you know. Atsushi is an avid overlander and his social media accounts portray his passion for the outdoors!
We found this beautiful M3 by our mutual love of Michelin Tires. If you're looking for top-notch BMW M3 photos, take a look at the #NardoM3!
bwildjournals has been a friend of ours for a few years now and never ceases to amaze me on the adventures he has. bwildjournals proves that you don't need a brand-new rig to get out; all you need is a sturdy vehicle and a love of the outdoors.
Brooks is quite a character and a great guy to boot. We have hit the trail with this guy, and it is always fun when he is around!
Another long-time friend of ours is the dog loving pathfinder. A true human, explorer, and good-person; the tag-line says it all: "ATL born, United States raised. Explorer of things with 3 huskies"
The Overland Bound Team
Being that we're in such close proximity (literally 15 minutes away) and into the same sport, it seemed only natural to team up with the good folks at Overland Bound. A huge thanks to Michael and Corrie, Kent @kent.ob1632, and Chris @overlandbound.md !
Anna and Andrea
Another awesome friendship that forged this year was the one with Rebelle Rally competitors, friends, and Team Waypoint Wanderers of Anna (@fj_anna) and Andrea (@4wlnmom)! These two competed in the 2020 Rebelle and are just two of the nicest people you'll ever meet!
This guy works on all types of vehicles (including fire apparatus) and believes in quality work. How do I know that? Just look at his builds and installs!
Rebelle Rally (Event and Team)
We've been around the Rebelle since the beginning. For Rebelle's inaugural race, we sponsored a team; not knowing how big this rally was going to become. This year we sponsored a team and the event; it is a very special thing that resides in our hearts and we're proud to be a part of such a meaningful event.
Keep Our Desert Clean "KODC" @keepourdesertclean
Speaking of being involved in great events, we have had a great working relationship with the folks over at keepourdesertclean. What do they do? These folks are ambassadors of the earth that ensure the desert stays free of litter for future generations to enjoy.
Someone new to the #WaganTechFamily is Stormy from @wrenchology. She is a woman who is not afraid to get under the hood and get things done! No matter your gender, Stormy is an inspiration for all!
DCA "Distribuidora Car-Avila" @dcaravila
Last, but definitely not least is the team at Distribuidora Car-Avila. Based in Venezuela, they carry everything you need to get outdoors in your rig. They're a great group of people who have a great love of 'wheeling!
