Christina's Off-Road Facts:

Q: How old were you when you first started wheeling?
A: 
"17"

Christina Sullivan-LON MemberQ: Is your whole family into off-roading?
A: "They love it. My daughter purchased an XJ with birthday money, and chore money at the age of 8. She already has her first marketing partner Money Pitt Classifies! My husband Shawn and I fight over who's driving each trail."

Q: Are you usually the driver or the co-driver?
A: "I usually get to set the mood for that one. Some days I want to just be the passenger so I can get out and socialize on the trail and take pictures. Lately, I've been travelling to events alone and enjoying being Pandora's Pilot."

Q: Do you have any off-road traditions or rituals?
A: "I had a Hula girl attached to the dash of the jeep, she was with me from the beginning of Pandora. Unfortunately we lost her in the jeep fire. Other than that my only tradition is to meet someone new on the trail and continue to build lasting relationships."

Christina Sullivan-LON MemberQ: How often do you get to go off-roading?
A: "I think the question would be easier to answer as How Often do I stay home? I am highly involved in the off-road community and find it very difficult to stay off the trail when I have a perfectly good opportunity to be on trail."

Q: How did you get started in the off-road world?
A: "It was as a teenager, we spent a lot of time camping in the mountains and naturally the best way to get there is an awesome 4 wheel drive vehicle. I was 19 when a group of us went to Jeep Safari for the first time."

Q: Where is your favorite place to wheel?
A: "I've been asked this several times and I never had a specific answer. Every time I'm out I have the opportunity to meet someone new and awesome. As well as the opportunity to see some amazing places."

Q: Do you belong to an off-road club? Which one? What is their motto/mission?
A: 
"Yes! Lyft Offroad - Our mission is to leave our community and environment better than we found it. Red Rock 4-Wheelers, and Grand Mesa Jeep Club. I seek to re-join Mile Hi Jeep Club after I form my own Patrol."

Christina Sullivan-LON MemberQ: What is on your off-roading bucket-list?
A: "Rebelle Rally has been a goal of mine since they first announced the event a few years ago.  It has been pretty untouchable for me and I can't wait to make that one happen. I would also love to experience wheeling with my friends Morroco and Dubai.  I have been invited on several occasions and I know it would be amazing to experience."

Q: How are you active in the off-road world?
A: "Not really sure where to begin on this one.  My whole life is centered around the off-road community.  I originally started my own off-road club (Lyft Offroad) 3 years ago to offer an family friendly environment for local off-roaders.  That club has attracted people nationally and even internationally.  Lyft Offroad also works to make a good reputable name for off-roaders in general by participating in charitable events to give back to the community, as well as volunteering for clean-up operations in conjunction with other clubs.  I volunteer my time at every event I attend because I know that events can't happen without people to make them happen.  I also thoroughly enjoy talking to women about how they can be involved in the off-road community as an Ambassador and Local Leader for Ladies Offroad Network."
