How often do you hear an event described as “Epic?" Each time I speak with someone, the last event they attended was the best event ever. They may have even described it as “epic." Is it possible for an event to transcend the epic status and, if so, what’s the next level?
I look forward to any opportunity to travel in the mountains, especially with a few good friends. Event or no event, sitting around a campfire long after the sun has set is one of the most rewarding aspects of adventure travel. Campfires have the ability to invoke a primitive comfort inside all of us. The dancing flames, orange glow and inviting warmth can do wonders for your soul.
Entering the night, the two 5.7L vehicles had no issues lighting their path. Team 8155, Canguro Racing hit the switch on the eight ARB Intensity LEDs and soldiered on.

47 years in the making, the Baja 1000 is a race known to enthusiasts and laypeople worldwide. Running a brutal 1275 miles from Ensenada to La Paz, the 2014 Baja 1000 is open to just about every vehicle type imaginable, and everyone from the trophy trucks to the class 11 VWs pays the same entry fee. This year we are fortunate enough to have a stowaway on board. Land Cruiser editor, Daniel Markofsky is embedded with Team #8155, Canguro Racing, a Stock Full team racing a 200 series Land Cruiser. Growing from strong root in the Land Cruiser culture, the 200 series was a perfect fit for the crew.
