Gold Mountain - Jeep Badge of Honor

Adams Xtreme Off Road Adventure: Day 31 & 32 

Let the Adventure Lead You

My Jeep friend Stacey and I.


Another moment of where the Adventure lead me. That last minute lunch with fellow Jeeper Stacey the day before lead to an amazing day of wheeling in Southern California. I met up with Stacey in the morning. Our first stop was Pioneertown. A cool little stop before we hit the trails. 


In 1946, Pioneertown was founded by a group of Hollywood investors, including actors Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. They dreamed of creating an Old West set 125 miles east of Los Angeles that was actually a town worth visiting.

The 1880s-style false-front facades with interiors that had stuff for visitors to see and do too. Up went frontier stables, saloons, and jails; inside, they housed ice cream parlors, bowling alleys, and motels. After a stroll through the town it was off to the trails. 

Off-Road Trail N202

My Jeep friend Mike and I

The first trail was 2N02 where we also met fellow Jeeper and YouTuber Mike - JeepZentoks. We all had such a great time Stacey and Mike met us for our most recent adventure the LTWK Mohave Road Fan Ride. A great 20 mile moderate trail that connects the Yucca Valley to Big Bear with stunning views of the San Bernardino Mountains.

We came out of the trail near Big Bear Lake and make a last minute decision to try the Gold Mountain Trail again. I wanted that Jeep Badge of Honor.  Stacey and Mike had never wheeled the trail, but did an amazing job on those rocky obstacles for the first time in their manual Jeeps with no lockers!

By the time we drove off the mountain it was dinnertime so we stopped in Big Bear for some dinner, then it was time to say good-bye to Stacey and Mike (for now). It was a great day of wheeling and we met two really great Jeepers.

Paul Jho and I 

After wheeling in southern California I headed to the coast for a quick stop to do an interview with Paul from Nexen Tires.

It was a bittersweet day. It was time to head back to the East Coast. It was an amazing trip as we met so many awesome companies and Jeepers. Deep down I didn't think I could ever make another Jeep adventure happen. Little did I know what my future was going to bring.
