Australia’s fire season started early and 2019-2020 bush fires were the worst the country has ever seen. The government had to declare emergency in November of 2019. The devastating fires destroyed an area approx. 25.5 million acres, killing 33 people, including volunteer firefighters, and more people are missing. Homes have been destroyed.

Driving on a highway or any plain terrain is not that interesting as it is driving on rough terrains. Off-roading as we all call it is something that gives us the much-coveted adrenaline rush, which of course, a highway drive lacks in.
Setting off on ATVs and dirt bikes to distant places that are renowned for their challenging terrains might be like a dream come true for many off roaders. So far so good, but off-roading is not quite healthy from the environmental point of view and there is a dire need that we all consider this.
