BDS loaded up the trailer and headed east for the 4th and final Outback Offroad Adventure of the 2014 season. Organized by Meridian Offroad in Butler, PA, BDS has been sponsoring this offroad park for years and uses it both for product testing as well as an opportunity to meet customers and spend some time together out on the trail. Rob and Terry from Meridian Offroad did on heck of a job organizing the event once again opening up the park for 2 days of trail rides on a mix of mild to hardcore terrain. With plenty of rain these past few weeks even the moderate trails became a challenge to navigate.
The weekend camping/4wheeling trip gave us a chance to bring out some new faces, a few BDS employees without time behind the wheel of Project KJ and limited time out on the trail. Also attending was sister company Zone Offroad Products with their Jeep Comanche MJ. All 5 of us that attended took turns behind the wheel of the rigs over the weekend and there were plenty of stories to come from it. We rolled into the park Friday night, unloaded the rigs and set up camp. Saturday morning Rob held a driver’s meeting and welcomed everyone to the park. The park is split into 2 area, each roughly 500 acres in the hills of western PA with dozens of trails to navigate. Despite the sloppy, mud-covered rocky terrain, the rigs handled great around the park. A few dents and scrapes to report, but no part failures making for a weekend of 4wheeling. Following our Sunday run on the snake trail we loaded up rigs and hit the road back to Michigan arriving back just before sundown.
