Frank began his passion for Land Rovers and off-road driving in 1978 at the age of 14 when his father, trying to be frugal, decided that a good “1st vehicle” for his son would be the old ’67 Series II Land Rover that had been collecting dust in the barn.

Dan's interest in Land Rovers started in August of 2001 when he purchased a new Disco II SE7. It wasn't long before the "upgrades" started and now Dan spends as much time as possible on the trails. In its first year, Dan managed to put over 30k on his new truck. An avid outdoorsman, Dan spends much of the year travelling, camping, hunting, fishing, canoeing and just about every other outdoor activity.

Ron's passion for motorized outdoor adventures began at age 12 behind the wheel of an aging 1947 CJ. By 14 he had developed a fondness short of addiction for 4-wheel drifts on loose terrain. Wanderlust and fear of civilized behavior stoked an additional interest in expeditionary adventures including: point-to-point yacht racing from California to Mexico and Hawaii, kayaking in the Northwest Territories and Alaska, winter camping in the Sierra-Nevadas and pub-crawling in Washington, DC. ROXS provides an opportunity for a confluence of these avocations, in a community of kindred spirits.
