Have you ever dreamed about climbing a ski mountain in a Jeep? I know I have. The thought of scaling peaks in a 4×4 has crossed my mind countlessly over the years while riding on the chairlift. So when BF Goodrich asked if I might be interested in a hands-on demo of their their brand new All-Terrain T/A KO2s at Hunter Mountain on a tricked out Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I jumped on the opportunity.
This was not an ordinary media junket. I didn’t need to get on a plane, dress up, or sit through a slide presentation. All I needed to do was gather up my cameras, drive Slambo up to Hunter Mountain, stay over one night, wake up and go four wheeling in a wicked modded Jeep Wrangler with one of the best drivers in North America.
While I shot this video solo, I had expert help. The driver is Andrew Comrie-Picard, a.k.a. “ACP” … (I hit the YouTube publish button before realizing that I forgot to add the on-screen credit. D’oh!) Andrew is a driver’s driver, with titles that include the 2014 Rally America 2WD championship, the 2009 North American AWD championship, and class-winner in the Baja 1000.
