So I am sure you have heard me say this before and I will say it again…. We love off-roading and we love to have people join us! A few times a year we will invite our friends and customers to hit the trails with us. We do different levels of trails and yes sometimes we push people to go a little bit beyond what they are use to… but I always say it’s better to go out and learn how to handle these terrains with people that know what they are doing for your first time then. Whenever we are invited to go out with Off-Roaders that are more experienced then us, we also try to say yes… It’s were we learn the most. So, if you are ever nervous about joining one of our trial days, don’t be, we are here for you!
So, a few weeks ago we hit the trials of Big Bear, Ca. We met up in Fawnskin, CA at 9:30 am on a pretty warm Saturday for our local mountains where we briefed the group on trail etiquette for those new to the scene. Wheels were up at 10:00 am as we departed north on Rim of the World Drive to the trail head at 3N14. We had 33 vehicles join us from all over southern California show up for a fun (unofficial) trail day on a early Saturday morning. From modified Jeeps, stock Jeeps and SUVs to Raptors, full-size trucks and daily drivers. Of course we took our 2019 Ford Ranger to lead the group, and our Gen 1 Ford Raptor for our recovery/Chase vehicle.
We had a pretty amazing group…. large, but amazing mix. A lot of new faces joined us and some familiar faces attended to also lend a hand and support the group including Sean Holman and Jay Tilles from The Truck Show Podcast, the team (Cody, Matt, and Jose) from Trail Chasers Podcast (talk about some fun radio banter), Funshine Jeep Girls Club, Jason and Marcel from Auto Revolution, AJ and the Team from Paramount Automotive and Dave Cole, creator of ULTRA4 Racing and King of the Hammers. Make sure to check out the links below from Trail Chasers and Truck Show Podcast to hear what they had to say about our adventure.
We followed the planned route that we pre-ran a few weeks before using our OnX GPS app and can confidently report that everyone had a great time, even the few vehicles that had to decline the hill climbs because their vehicles just weren’t quite equipped to make the obstacles. Maybe they’ll take advantage of our July Summer Sale going on now (shameless business plug 😉 – details below).
In the end, everyone tackled their fears and did a great job out on the trail. We can’t wait to do it again soon. Hopefully we will see you out in the dirt with us!
Many thanks to everyone who attended and thank you for supporting our small business during this time! We appreciate you!
