Light-Ventures: Tillamook State Forest, Photo Contest and More
"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall."
- Oscar Wilde
CUSTOMER FEATURE: RYAN K.
Vehicle: 2005 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road
Instagram Handle: @trail_yeti
Rig Nickname: Trail Yeti. It’s white and I love taking out on trails.
How'd You Get Into Overlanding? I bought a Tacoma, joined some forums, caught the mod-bug, and became an enthusiast.
Favorite Cali Raised LED Product: I always have the Fog Lights on during the day, as daytime running lights. I have them aimed down so I don’t disrupt other drivers, though the beams are still high enough to work great in the frequent Oregon rain and occasional snow storm.
Upcoming Trips: Boy #2 is due in September, so I’ll be sticking close to home for a while. Luckily for me, there are plenty of local trails to explore here in Oregon!
