Off Road Podcast Episode 197 - Free Range Dames Follow-up


Welcome to the Off Road Podcast. 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 your host Ben here with my co-hosts Jeremy and Steve. And our guests Mercedes and Elise. How’s everyone doing?

Anyone done anything exciting?

  • Ben - been busy walking around inviting people to the event

  • Jeremy - Taught my wife the basics of winching.  She has helped me do it before and knows a lot of the techniques and theory, but had never done all the steps by herself, so we winched off of her car (bonus: she figured out where her tow points were.) Purchased a 2007 K-mart Trail Machine 450EXC.  Haven’t decided on a name, but got it registered today, It is street legal. Turn signal kit coming in on Wednesday.

  • Steve - Ruined the hood on my Colorado, ordered a new hood, got the Colorado to into the garage to finally get it finished.  Hunting season is over, my boy and I both filled our deer tags, we were not able to find elk.
