Well we got all the prerunning wrapped up for ROC FEST. And man are the trails awesome. A little of everything for everyone. Just what we wanted. My personal favorite is a deep sandy/silty portion of one of the trails. It's a blast.

Knocked out the prerun video to give you a taste of the trails and the fun ahead at ROC FEST! Open to any and all vehicles that want to go play in the dirt for a few days. Razors and other offroads toys welcome. Most of the group is camping for those who are still trying to deiced what to do.

Enjoy the video

ROC Fest 2015 was the first of a new annual event for Northern CA and NV. Myself and the ROC Team would like to thank all those who participated and helped us make the event a great success. Those who missed this year, we are doing the event again next year on the 2nd weekend of October (weather dependent of course).

As there were so many activities and events going on there is no way to do a play by play recap. You can see all the images and video on the ROC FEST - 2015 website. We have over 520 images so the images posted to the thread are some of the hilights of the three days activities.

See the Event recap video here

The recaps we have are from the group runs we did over the three days. There were many other outings and activities participants partaken in. They can share their stories on the forum they belong to if they so choose.

Friday, 12 participants went out on a 45 mile fast trail loop with some great switch back sections. With the rain the weekend before, some parts of the trail had big mud puddles, which meant none of the trucks were going to stay clean for long. One of the large mud puddles reached up and grabbed one of the participants and wouldn't let him go. We quickly pulled him out of the mud and were able to move on. A first time Raptor owner found out in a wash out the stock tie rods on his truchk were not that strong. Luckily, we planned for such a thing and had spares.

Saturday was our BIG group run to cover a 120-mile loop. We left camp later than planned because some people partied the night before. Who would have guessed? No major issues occurred during the loop other than we hit a lot more washouts than we saw on the pre-run. The rains really did a number on the trail to make it slow going in one section. At the 70% point, half the group turned to camp while the rest did a photo shoot at Calico Hills and did the last 30% of trails.

Sunday many of the participants went home, as they had a long way to go. Those that had the short trek home did a 61 mile down and back fast trail with some very technical sections. We also played on the lakebed a little to get some fun shots of the trucks in action.

I hope one of these days we will get some Silverado's or Sierra's out. I see a few pre-runners in my area but none never show up =(
