Mapping Crew - Colorado
Chad's family moved to Colorado in 1983 when he was just 6 years old. Aside from a one-year work stint in Phoenix he has lived on the Front Range ever since. Starting at a very young age he had a fascination with big trucks and all types of high performance, custom, or modified vehicles. At the age of 8, Santa brought him a Big Foot Monster truck toy for Christmas. That only further instilled his desire to have a big truck when he grew up. At age 12, he started getting subscriptions to "Peterson's 4Wheel and Off Road" and "Off Road" magazines and by 14 he started learning how to drive farm trucks during the summer in Nebraska. For years he continued to amass magazines and knowledge and at 17 he finally bought a '79 Ford Bronco. He was instantly hooked!! A life of dreaming had finally come to fruition.
Through the years, he has owned 7 various Ford & Dodge off-road capable vehicles. As it happens, life caught up with him and he wasn't able to pursue his hobby to the extent he'd desired and it was quite a few years before he got his most recent 4x4 vehicle, a '96 Ford Explorer XLT. One trail was all it took to be bitten by the bug again. In his spare time, if he's not out exploring a new trail, then you'll find him researching trails and rig upgrades online, or working on the Explorer.
Chad's favorite quote;
"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it." ~Lou Holtz~
