PRO TIP

To survive the deserts of the rugged southwest, you have to have WATER. Second, I would have my faithful Hutchins Motorsports pre-runner that won't leave me stranded. Of course this means, I would need my General Grabbers, so I am not changing tires all weekend. The fourth component of the trip would have to be my Ipod! You can't be out there for days on end without some tunes! Last, but not least, is a lighter! I never go into the desert without a lighter in my pocket, as you never know when you will be spending the night in an unexpected location, it gets cold in the desert at night!

Best road trip you've ever taken:
I was driving to Utah one time to go snowboarding, in a blizzard, and we were going about 70 mph down I-15 and we decided the truck was going to go sideways so we drove sideways for a while going about 70, in a blizzard, at about two in the morning. That was an interesting road trip. We didn’t even get off the road. Made it there and back.

Bonus question: If you could go anywhere on your Grabbers, where would you go?
Antarctica to see the penguins. I’m going to go destroy some snow.
