This year the Lone Star Toyota Jamboree fell on Star Wars Day & Cinco de Mayo! I didn’t bring my lightsaber or a bottle of Tequila, but I still had a blast! (I did bring some cigars and a bottle of whiskey, though)
Our annual spring meet has been a tradition with the Soft Roaders since the beginning of the group in 2014. This event is our spring-time meet & greet to introduce everyone to the other members of the group.

Sorry...sorry I’ve been so lame around here lately, its been a busy few weeks for me. I do have a best of coming for last month. I also plan on reading and checking out all the great stuff thats been posted lately when I get a free moment. In the meantime, check out this cool story from 4x4 Australia.
