Ford Truck Dominates Kentucky Hills (Video)

F-150 truck full of East Tennessee overlanders sling some serious mud.

For those of us who partake in the magical hobby of off-roading, getting lost in the woods is a good thing. And that’s exactly what the East Tennessee Overlanders love to do.

The club is made up of a wide range of individuals with various backgrounds, but they all share one common interest: overlanding. Or as they define it, a “self-reliant adventure-travel to remote destinations where the journey is the primary goal.” That sort of thing involves trips that span long periods of time and includes fun activities like camping and crossing unfamiliar territory.

The purpose of their off road adventures isn’t simply to get somewhere or to conquer an obstacle. It’s to enjoy every moment of the journey along the way. And much of that journey is enjoyed through planned group trips.

While ETO started mostly as a Toyota group, they’ve since expanded to include everything from Jeeps to bicycles. And of course, at least one Ford truck, specifically, the white last-gen Raptor you see in this highly entertaining and informative video.

Two different groups of the Overlanders meet up for, well, a little overlanding over winter break. A full 20 vehicles strong, they conquer anything and everything Kentucky has to offer. The result is 14 minutes of tough trails, beautiful scenery, and endless memories.
