CALIFORNIA CITY - Ed Waldheim moved to California City so he could pull out of his garage and hit the open trails of the desert.

But Waldheim, president of the California Off-Road Vehicle Association, spends so much time traveling to meetings regarding off-road vehicles that he rarely has time to ride his own.

For Waldheim, who has been president of the statewide off-road vehicle association for the last 13 years, an average day puts him in any California city where people ride vehicles on off-highway trails.

Waldheim moved into his house, which he had been renting out, to ride more frequently. The shrinking amount of nearby land due to housing, he said, "has brought its challenges."
