About Brian

Q:  What is your professional background?   Where did you work, and what was your role there?

A:  Owner of Built 2 Rock Offroad.  Retired as a Millwright from Ford Motor Company after 32 years of service.

Q:  How long have you been off-roading? What drew you to the sport?

A:  I bought my first Jeep when I was 16 years old and I have at one ever since.  When I was 12, we had a scout camping weekend and it rained the whole time. We moved our camp into a barn for shelter.  After a while, we c onvinced the Scoutmaster to take his father’s 1974 K5 Blazer out in then pastures.  We had a blast and I was hooked for life!

Q:  What are your passions and interests related to the club’s activities? What motivated you to join the board?

A:  I joined the board this year to help our members get out and enjoy off-roading:  trail rides on easy trails to hard core rock-crawling. We have started the trips out close to home and as weather gets better, our trips will moved to some parks that offer a wider range of terrain.
