Events are great to attend whether you are just getting into wheeling or are well experienced. For a full list of TLCA endorsed events you can check the Toyota Land Cruiser Association (TLCA) Events page. My club – the Southeast Toyota Land Cruiser Association (STLCA), hosts an annual event called the Great Smoky Mountain Trail Ride in east Tennessee that draws a big crowd from all over the country and has been going on for more than 25 years.
I recently listened to Episode 72 Are You Going? from the guys at Toyota Trucks and Trails. Jason, Rich, and Andy do a great job of covering most, if not all of the aspects of attending events – from understanding the type of event you are attending, camp etiquette, being prepared, and more. If you are new to events this is a must listen, if you are experienced you will learn something, and enjoy a few laughs at some of the stories the guys share.
