Hundreds of adventure rigs gathered in Hood River, Oregon, for the first Toyo Tires Trailpass event. Camping was encouraged on-site, vendors lined up to display their wares to the participants, skills clinics were scheduled throughout the day, and to top it off, the day finished with a raffle of epic proportion.
There was no cost to enter the event, however, donations to the Hood River County Fish Food Bank were encouraged.
Read on for some snapshots of the action!
Tad Johnson outfitted his '89 Chevy with a custom bed rack to hold his rooftop tent just low enough so that it would clear low-hanging branches on most Forest Service trails.
The drivetrain was left alone, however, Offroad Design springs were installed, an Eaton HO72 rearend went in place of the stock axle, and Tad is in the process of building an onboard air system.
The rear winch is an added bonus.
A pair of 80-watt solar panels on the hood charge Tad's dual-battery setup.
Vendors like Vision X, Snow Peak, Women Overlanding The World, Ironman 4x4, KC Lights, Cascadia Vehicle Tents, Overkill Campers, Veteran Overland, and many more, were on site.
Food donations were encouraged and were given to the Hood River County Fish Food Bank.
Some of the raffle prizes at the end of the night included a Pelican cooler, Dometic fridge/freezer, and a set of Toyo tires.
Crowds of adventurers were excited to explore the event.
