Default Rovers On the Rocks 9, 10 Nov

It's that time of year again, the rover event that started it all for me. The first Land Rover event I ever attended was Rovers on the Rocks 5 years ago. I met some great folks and made some amazing friends from that event. It was at this event I first realized how truly friendly and great the Rover community is. I arrived and knew no one, by the end of the event I think I knew everyone, and felt like I had been a part of the group for my entire life.

This year is the first time for the event at Anthracite. Can't wait to run the LR3 on some new terrain with great friends then enjoy some great food from Buddy's.

This event is one that I will always make time for. I'll warn you though it can be addictive.



Here's the info straight from Lucky8

Nov 10-12 2017

Got my spot reserved at the camp ground the discount code "Lucky8" basically was 50% off.

Also if you are at ROTR come see me for a Landroverforums decal for your car. The owners are sending me a bunch of them to hand out at events.

Man, that guy really hates his RRC! Poor truck, I wonder how much damage he did in a minute and a half.
