Preping for GONE! – May 2011

It seems as if the days between now and the first day of GONE in Moab, Utah tick by faster and faster as we get closer and closer to hitting the first trail. I’ve got 3 days left here in Tahoe, then I hit the road and head for so. cal to prep the truck only to continue the trip on to Utah to meet you!

Between May 16th – 31st, the office phone will be shut off, however online orders will still be processed. This is only due to GONE prep and the actual event. Everything should be back to normal operation, starting on June 1st.

While we’re away at GONE, you’re not going to be able to just pick up the phone and give me a ring for parts however, you can still reach me directly by e-mailing or using the contact us page found at

If you’re not joining us at GONE this year then stay tuned on the Rugged Rocks Facebook, Twitter and the Rugged Rocks blog ( for details on whats changing on the Pathfinder just in time for GONE as well as daily trail reports with pictures during the actual GONE event. We’ll also be gathering some video footage, so keep an eye out for that when we get back.

As for the rest of you that are going to GONE, be sure to be at the raffle to win some Rugged Rocks swag and parts! I’m also really looking forward to meeting you, wheeling with you, hearing your wheeling stories and even sharing a few of mine.

See you on the trail.
