RIDE: 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4

LOCATION: San Diego, California

FAVORITE TRAIL: Anything in Big Bear! That is truly my happy place (I love the mountains!).

FAVORITE UPGRADE: This would have to be my front bumper and red skid plates. Not only does the extra armor give me peace of mind while out on the trails, but it also makes my truck stand out from the rest!


Ever since I was a little girl, my dream vehicle has always been a truck. I grew up in Southern California and spent a lot of time in the outdoors with my dad. We would go camping, hiking, riding dirt bikes, catching reptiles and other creepy-crawlies that would probably make the average person go running. Nonetheless, the outdoors quickly became my happy place and where I could always return to reclaim my peace of mind and freedom, so naturally a truck just made sense! And well, the rest was history!

What started as “just a few upgrades” has turned into a never-ending, on-going project that has brought me so many awesome experiences, opportunities, and most importantly friendships and relationships. I love that my adventure rig is not only my daily, but it also allows me to get out, see new places, and enjoy everything that I have always loved about the great outdoors.
