It’s About WAY More Than Just The Off-Roading – And YOU Can Be a Part of It!!!

So, the whole world knows I love off-roading and overlanding, all over the country. I’ve got somewhere over 10,000 miles (and losing count) on non-paved surfaces ranging from fire trails/roads to beaches to mountains to deserts to 4×4 trails. But, that’s far from what I’m all about.

My friends and I also like giving back. I’m a part of MtnRoo, and the chapter I’m most active in, MtnRoo Tri-State, puts on some amazing volunteer events.

So, join us, and be a part of the next adventure (and do something good at the same time)!
