SnoFari 2013, Winter Wheeling in West Branch
This past weekend BDS loaded up the truck and trailer and made it’s way 4 hours north for SnoFari 2013 in West Branch, MI. This annual event put on by the Soldiers of Fortune (SoFo) Offroad Club brings in roughly 80 rigs annually for 2 days/nights of snowy 4wheeling and some great camaraderie by the bar with a great group of off-roaders. From stock to fully built, the event is organized with a range of trails to keep everyone entertained.
The recent chilly weather made for some much needed snow leading up to the event. With several inches of fresh snow, temps in the 20s and occasional sunshine we had great conditions for SnoFari 2013. The only thing except possibly for a couple feet of extra snow to play in. Shawn and Carter headed out from BDS Suspension in the companies ’97 TJ outfitted with a slew of upgrades, BDS long arm kit, 37” tires, lockers, roll cage, and winch, yet forgot to bring a top. They wheeled the topless TJ all day and had a blast.
Following the event the group of 240 off-roaders gathered for an amazing spread of food and drink in the hotel’s banquet hall. Awards were given out and giveaways were raffled off. With the proceeds made from the event the SoFo Club was able to write a check in support of the GLFWDA for $1000, a great testament to the club’s passion for the off-road community. This event is a must do for any 4wheeler, and we can’t wait to meet back up with everyone for next year’s trip. For more info on SnoFari 2014, keep an eye out on http://www.glfwda.org/
