Road Tours

Fire Tour

With the SEMA show always falling on the first of November, we decided to do a road tour to Las Vegas to coincide with this event. Our 3 day adventure started in the central valley of California. We headed east to our first stop at Rail Town. Here, participants were able to take a trip through the past, and to the silver screen, by riding on the most filmed railway in the nation. After the train ride, we took a tour of the roundhouse to see the museum’s collection of engines and cars.

ROC Fest III

The close of the 2017 offroad season was another great event. ROC Fest III had the largest number of participants to date, with 28 trucks registered. Amongst our many participants, we had trucks that traveled from Washington, Arizona and Colorado to come play. While not everyone was there each day, everyone in attendance had a great time camping, telling stories, hitting the trails for some epic drives and, of course, some shenanigans.

Lake Tahoe Drive – 2017

While this year’s annual Tahoe drive did not start as planned, the drive itself was just as much fun as in years past.  We attempted to try a new route for this year’s trip, however one of the roads was closed due to construction, so we went with plan B, which was a previously taken route.
