Off-Roading 101 at TrailCraft:
Bring your life-size Tonka

My truck might have been in 4-low, but my mind was racing, adrenaline bangin’ off the rev limiter like a rally car flat over crest. Against my better judgment, my left foot slowly released the brake of my near-antique Xterra and it rolled closer to a 10-foot drop into an adult playground they called a Four-Wheel Drive Park. This ‘park’ I thought was going to be like a Range Rover dealership with a little hill and a couple of rocks so rich people could test to make sure their statement Rovers could make it over the speed-bumps in the parking lot at Crate & Barrel. No. This park wasn’t in the shadow of a Whole Foods. It was in the shadow of the White Mountains – and I was headed straight down.
Welcome to TrailCraft.
Hard to believe, almost six months later, that this actually happened. Slapdash Racing got a great view from the podium after some killer co-driving and late nights from the crew. Couldn't have done it without Bill Doyle, Teo Ebratt, and the father and son team of Erik and Sulo Burbank.
2nd in Class, first podium for Slapdash --

Master Cage Builder Bill Doyle, of CageThis.com, takes his turn shouting out directions.
This parking spot cost me about 20 grand.
