The Motor Mountain USA adventure is on the home stretch with only a few states remaining on the list on our quest to visit every highest drivable point in the continental United States, including Alaska. The trustworthy and dependable Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has covered over 37,000 miles to date and not once has it left the team stranded on the roadside. This week’s adventure is driving to Alabama’s natural highest point, which is Cheaha Mountain at 2,407 feet above sea level. Located a few miles northwest of the town of Delta in beautiful Cheaha State Park, travelers are rewarding with scenic panoramic views of the Talladega National Forest.
As the MMUSA endeavor draws to a close, a run up Gold Mine Hill in the home state of Colorado is on the order. A favorite trail of the TFL team to test AWD capability, this section of the Switzerland Trail is steep, rugged, and a serious challenge to any all-wheel drive vehicle. The Jeep Wrangler is renowned for its off-road capability, but can it conquer Gold Mine Hill in the winter on tired tires with a lot of miles?
This trip is also about involving you in the adventure. TFLcar has commissioned 50 commemorative silver belt buckles, one for each state. We will leave a belt buckle somewhere in the state and tell you the GPS coordinates so you can find it. The first person to find it keeps it. In return, we ask you to send us a picture of yourself with the belt buckle. You can tweet to us @TFLcar, Facebook us at TFLcar, use the #MMUSA, or #MotorMountainUSA hashtag, email email@example.com, or all of the above.
One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows down and top off in a 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way, Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.
