Clay City, October 28, 2022
500+ miles of overland travel. On road, off road, technical driving. This rally brings back the true meaning of "overland" before instagram hipsters turned it into glorified car camping. This rally is not for the faint of heart, the novice, or the whiners. You must understand the limits of your truck, your body, and your team to finish. You will receive no assistance, and must be completely self sustaining for the duration of the rally. The rally is who we are, and if you finish, it will become who you are, too. Its a family.
