In this episode, we interview a rookie competitor in this year’s King of the Hammers competition. Gina Guccione discovered the world of off-road travel a few years ago after buying her first Jeep. She wasted little time diving in and modifying her Jeep to allow for tackling the tougher trails in her local off-road parks. In March of last year she purchased her second Jeep, a bone stock 97 TJ, and well… we will let her explain the obstacles she has faced thus far to get her Classy Pink Jeep ready to compete in one of the most challenging and technical competitions held in the United States.
Offroad Jeep Girl is running a Crowdfunding Campaign to get up some cash for the trip, it’s 1700 miles 1 Way of travel for her and her crew! She’s going in RV and towing her rig which is in the final stages of build up before the event! Michigan Jeep Girl is going with her for Pit Crew Support, and has agreed to take my GoPro’s to capture footage of the adventure, the race, and behind the scenes of the event!
In support of them and their endeavor I have committed to contributing $5.00 for any DirtyJeepGirls Calendar Contribution to their Campaign from here to the end of my Campaign.
Follow her blog as she updates often on upgrades and final preparations for the race!
Most of all, support these two Real Life Dirty Jeep Girls as they live their dreams and accept the challenge that is King Of The Hammers!
The Video Below is of Michigan Jeep Girl Opening up the Package I sent containing pretty much my entire GoPro Kit for her and crew to document Gina’s First King Of The Hammers run! I’m hoping she will get some footage on the trip out, behind the scenes race prep, starting line and footage of Gina during the race! I included a Hero 2 & Hero 3, WiFi Pack for Hero 2, WiFi Remote, and enough Memory Cards to record 24 Hrs of footage. Since the race is 200 Miles long, we can’t get the whole thing, but maybe the best parts! I think it’s great what these two are doing for the female Jeep community, and I want to prove, that you need to go beyond appearances and not judge a book by it’s cover. If that cover has a hot girl with a Jeep on it, you can bet, it’s a going to be a pretty good book though.
