Hello everyone,


Instead of making a post for each event, I am going to make one post that lists all the events for the Road Adventures Club (Formerly ROC). This way you can subscribe to the thread to get event reminders and see post run reports and images in one spot. This is also to make sure we are a good forum supporter by keeping the post clutter down to a minimum and it allows us to post all the disclaimer stuff in one spot.



2017 Event Dates:


March 4-5 – Black Rock Desert / Lovelock Mines

April 7-8 – Salton Sea / Ocotillo Wells

May 19-20 – Area 51 – Vegas to Vegas

June 24-25 – Test and tune / Dirt days

July 14-16 – Pony Express – Salt Lake to Carson City

August 18-20 – Mammoth Volcanic Trails

September 8-10 – Pismo Beach Dunes

October 13-15 – ROC Fest – Barstow


Events will be posted to this thread on how to sign up.





These are pay your own way events. This means even I, the organizer, pays my own way to attend. Organizing drives is my hobby, and I enjoy organizing and hosting events for fellow enthusiasts. I pay for the website and store system out of my own pocket to make sharing information and registering easier on everyone.


Expectations of participants.


Our trail runs are planned around having fun, seeing sites, and traveling specific amounts of mileage per day / event. This means you, the participant, are aware of the miles needing to be covered per day and that you are expected to cover these miles in a reasonable time frame. Our group is NOT a "fly as fast as you can" group, but at the same time we are not a crawler group. We enjoy off roading with all types of trucks/SUVs , therefore the routes and daily mileage requirements are selected with non-modified 4X4 vehicles in mind. By signing up, you understand we ask that when the trail conditions allow, you drive at a safe pace that allows you to cover the terrain / distance as expected by the group.
