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, Aaron, Steve and our guest Scott. How’s everyone doing?
Anyone done anything exciting?
Ben - Preparing for snow camping while enjoying snowpocalypse 1 through 3. Got to use my winch to recover a minivan, an F150 deep in a ditch, and a Scion XB toaster.
Jeremy - Should have been preparing for the podcast snow trip, but went wheeling during the snowpocalypse instead.
Aaron - Prepping for our podcast snow camping trip. Pulled apart all of my recovery gear and put it back together. Dropped out 3 bow shackles for 3 synthetic shackles. Can’t find some of my stuff since moving. Flew a nice drone and shot some footage for the 1st time.
Steve - Still working on Winch bumper, almost finished. Just a bit more welding, a lot of grinding, and then some primer and raptor liner. Need to figure out how to make the best use of my Last US Bag Co. bags.
Scott - Spent some time with Nissan in Morocco.
