OCC's primary activities are safe and prepared OHV driving, trail maintenance, helping each other build our OHV rigs, socializing, camping, and fighting the OHV road closures. OCC is a close-knit group of people who enjoy the company of friends. Members and guests are always encouraged to bring their families to club events, "Wrench-a-thons" to repair or modify your rig, or to just learn by helping out others to get together when you can't make it to the trail.

Favorite OCC moment:
December 2005 The Trip was the first Colossal Canines run. I spent the entire weekend prior to it wrenching on my relatively stock rig. I missed the holiday party due to mild hypothermia but by the end of the weekend. I had my body/ motor mount lift and belly up skid installed on a 2004 Wrangler Rubicon. The Night before the trip a snow storm rolled through the area and dropped a foot of snow in the mountains of Winchester! Even though it was only a day trip we had a good group that day that covered a lot of ground.
