Wanted to get a few words down about the Go Topless Day event this year. We went out again with the South Park 4×4 Club here in Colorado and had a great time. Sunshine and blue skies helped double the turn out from last year with more great new friends and some impressive rigs to boot. We headed out for a few trails north of Silvethorne, basically looking for anything we could run that wasn’t still covered in the record snowfall this year in Colorado.
Our first stop was to get a few shots of all the rigs lined up. A pretty cool sight driving down the road, we even got a few jeep waves from folks driving past. The trail we went up had a few good early season ruts and rolls to get over and provided some nice photo ops for the crew. Towards the top of the run, we hit a steep section with some loose dirt that made rear lockers at minimum a necessity. Pictures don’t do the hill justice as it was pretty steep.
We headed back down after a few of the rigs tried to race up the hill and on to the next trail. A rocky path, turning into partially snow covered trail, led us up to the haystack rock and to our official 2011 Go Topless Day photo op for the day. A few rigs down, but none the worse for wear. Couldn’t beat the weather (which turned to rain / snow only hours later) and the view wasn’t half bad either.
At any rate, we’ve got the itch for off-roading and hopefully, the weather will cooperate for the remainder of the sprint and allow us to get access to some of the local trails. We’ll see you out there…remember to keep waving!
