Rip to the Strip - 1/7

 

We'll be covering close to 200 miles with a nice mix of terrain and neat sites to checkout. The information below has been updated with the meet spots and locations. Please be sure to review all of the information. 

 

Detailed plan:

 

  • Saturday - We’ll be meeting at 8am in Victorville. Route will cover 200 off-road miles through the beautiful Mojave Desert. With any luck we'll be in Vegas before the sun goes down. 

Hotel:

You are free to stay wherever you like. If you'd like to stay with the EXO Crew we'll be staying at the Hard Rock. 

Truck requirements: 

 

While we were born in the Raptor community we allow all capable trucks. Our expeditions are fast paced so we do ask that your truck be modified to the performance level of a stock Raptor and in working order. For example, a Silverado or Tundra upgraded with bypass shocks would be fine on most of our excursions. We also recommend some sort of bump stop kit to prevent frame damage should you get a little carried away on the trail. Please contact us if you have any questions.

  • 50 watt vhf radio - programmed with Weatherman (151.625). If possible BFG Relay (151.715). 

  • GPS - Preferably lowrance. If you don’t have a lowrance let us know and we can figure something out.

  • 1 and preferably 2 full size spares - flats happen all the time in the desert and you don’t want to have to call it a day if you get just one. Several times we’ve had someone get 2 flats.

  • Auxiliary lighting - we often find ourselves driving at night in the middle of the desert and stock lights won't suffice. 

  • ALL maintenance done and truck running in good working order. If you have a small problem with your truck it almost always becomes a big problem on the trail. 

Driver expectations:

 

  • Most importantly - a great attitude!

  • Level headed driving - Our runs are not races. We expect you to obey all speed limits and drive at a safe and reasonable speed based on conditions. 

  • Failure to meet these expectations will result in you being asked to leave and will not be invited to participate in any of our future events.
