Driving a Classic 4x4 Home from SEMA 2017 #TENSEMA17Posted in Events on November 6, 2017
SEMA is almost certainly the world’s largest car show, and to many a dirt head it’s a bucket list check box. We’ve been enough to get jaded by all the shiny show cars and trucks that can’t actually do what they appear to be built for, which is sad. To be fair, we are a bit jaded, and the truth is the show allows a great venue to check out new products and get some decent ideas for just about any off-road or 4x4 project.
Still, it’s a great idea to head for the dirt after the show is over, and that’s just what we did after heading out of Vegas, past the Hoover Dam and back towards Phoenix. The area offers a ton of places to explore. We hit the almost-ghost-town of Chloride, Arizona, and then headed from Yucca, Arizona, to Wikiup, Arizona, on a dirt road called Alamo Road. If that won’t fit into your return trip head toward death Valley, Oatman, Arizona, Route 66, Jerome, Arizona, the Grand Canyon, and so on. Either way hit the dirt just like we did in Dino, our 1970 Chevy Suburban.
