About the Event

Windrock Birthday Bash VU4

August Fri 16 - Sun 18

VU returns to our home park for a very special occasion ……. Sean is getting old and turns 51!!! All he asked for his birthday was to go to DisneyLand, but not the one with the mouse and the duck….The one with the rocks and mud!!!

What better way to see if his old butt can keep up with the young bucks at the one and only 73,000 acre Windrock Park! We will spend an action packed 2 night / 2 day weekend with friends hitting some of the very best blue and black diamond trails the park has to offer!. When we return to camp, you can best believe good food, mango margaritas, and camaraderie that only can be experienced at a camp put on by Venture Unknown!  So come on pack a weekend go bag and lets go blow out 51 candles in this old mans cake!!

What to bring?

Proper clothing for the season, footwear (water resistant recommended), food, trail snacks, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, rain gear, and most important the right attitude. If you forgot something we will give you the shirt off our back but please plan ahead. Self reliance is an important part of offroading.  Don't be shy, ask questions. We love to help people enjoy this hobby.


Before the trip

We will be available for any questions you may have. We can be reached by phone, messenger, or email.  Sean will also create an optional FB messenger chat for all that are planning to come appx a week before the event to help with questions.

During the trip

We use GMRS radios during our rides. We highly recommend this type of communication. If you need recommendations on what to buy we will be glad to help. If you aren't able to secure a radio for the ride, we will provide a loaner. We will use VU channel CH17 (462.600)

What's included?

You can expect Sean to use his many years running guided trips to help you adapt to being off-road in remote spots of the wilderness and ensure he has your best interest always at the forefront. We never leave a man behind. You can expect a welcoming community of folks that always welcome you to the fire and who knows maybe Sean will share his famous Mango Margaritas with you. You can expect a VU sticker that captures this adventure so you can look back and remember the fun! Michelle's delicious homemade banana bread will be served on the final morning at our gratitude circle (this is worth the cost) just ask anyone. Educational opportunities during this ride will include driving techniques, gear recommendations, communication and navigation lessons. We also will share a GPX file of our route that includes camps in the area. You also will have access to a trip photo album and possible to be featured in a VU Youtube video.
