We had an amazing time at the 2017 King of the Hammers! The week has expanded and it is hard to keep up with all the activities and excitement! Doing daily posts from the lakebed has become unreasonable for me - instead my Dad and I spend our time trying to be everywhere at once and getting all the pictures and videos we can. Thanks for your help Dad!! :smokin:

We have spent the last couple weeks in the office compiling everything into what we are calling the #KOHredo via FB & Instagram. A day-by-day recollection of the whole week. It's fun and exciting. Join along in the adventure via social, or catch up on the events here.

I tried to tag anyone that I could in the pics and videos, but PLEASE help me make sure drivers, fans, sponsors, etc get tagged and know they have a pic that they can share.

Thursday / Friday -

Arrive and get setup - I pulled onto the lakebed super late on Thursday night just in time for the last campfire log to burn down. Friday was a casual day getting organized for the week and saying hello to friends. Did you see the purple waivey man?

Tuesday

Qualifying was the topic of the racers all day! The course was a combination of fast, rocks, uphill and downhills, plus the entertaining short course track! On Tuesday we also hosted our 4th Ladies Offroad Network Social and had the Ladies Offroad Experience WELDING with ESAB and LetzRoll Offroad. Of course a day at the Hammers isn't complete without a trip to Backdoor!

Saturday - The week of racing was over and it was time to go to the awards ceremony and then actually go wheeling out on the trails! Yes, I finally got to have an afternoon behind the wheel...remembering why we do what we do :)

Sunday - Time to load up and head home! It's weird...after 11 days I'm ok to go home, but I could also stay a few more. Can't wait until 2018 King of the Hammers!! #koh2018

Its always hard to catch most all of the drivers on the trail and then edit them into something interesting. Fun to see the different build thoughts, wraps-paint, and then driving styles and suspension reaction.

we see and learn a lot on the cutting table. Cheers guys!!!
