Everyone wants to go. Everyone wants to be the king. When people go they always come back a little different. There's a reason for that.And these are some of those reasons. 

 

 

For the most part people that will travel across the country to possibly destroy their trucks are hard core. They are for the most part life long trail junkies or tinkerers. People who for some reason will sit and invent rather than lay on a beach in their spare time. They like to drive over things or through and like to always conquer what's in front of them. What's really cool about ttc is if you're going you're probably one of those people.The even cooler thing is that you're about to spend a week with a group of people exactly like you.  Some are arrogant dick heads some are laid back. By the end of the week if you put the effort in you'll find you're all very much the same. The reason you're different when you come back is because you've found a place you belong in the world. Home. You are now part of a tight nit family that spans the world.

 

 

This is a small part of my family. They're from Nevada, Utah, Texas, Califorina, North Dakota ,Arkansas ,Montana ,Missourrie Alberta and a ton of other places.

I love it.       Sweet pics!    I will see if I can find some to add.   Most of my TTC pics are on my desk top that lost its power supply.   Need to get it fixed

If I remember right TTC launched Shannon Campbell's career in the off road racing industry.  Placed first back in 96 with a Jeep on 35's I think.  I'll have to go look.    

 

I hope that my buddy goes this year, if so, i'll be there as his wrench wench.  

 

Great pictures!  TTC is the sole reason we have an ITTC.  I think a lot of grass roots comps around North America are in some ways spawned from TTC.   Hell, Havoc was spawned in part in spite of TTC, and was an amazing first year.

 

Can't wait for this year!


Yup.... I break shit.... and I'm damn good at it... And I do trannies... big or small.... dirty or clean..... I go elbow deep for cheap!

I could't say for sure if TTC is the originator of the individual events but it was the first one to put all of them together. I miss the old acceleration rti and turning radius. It really was the pebble in the pond.
