Off Road Podcast Episode 153 - Do You Smell That??? An interview with Hawkeye SKUNK Works


Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. I'm your host, Ben. Today we will be exploring the off road world-- whether you like crawling up rock ledges or enjoy exploring the backroads with your family. Stay with us to find out events in your area, off road news, and topics to interest every guy & girl who craves the outdoors as seen through the windshield. I am here with my co-host Aaron and our guest Joe How’s everyone doing tonight?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Aaron - Packing for a weekend up on Hood Canal in Washington.

  • Ben - Crazy busy with life changes.

  • Joe - Just got back from family vacation working on utility trailer and working on list for Explorer.


  • Texas is flooding.  We’ve seen lots of videos on social media of vehicles being towed and people being rescued by regular citizens in their off road rigs.  Keep up the great work!
