The desert is beautiful, but it can be a brutal and rugged place. It’s not somewhere that most people plan on spending much time. If you’re a Jeep enthusiast, however, the desert is exactly the type of place you want to go and get lost for a few days. See what we mean in this awesome video of a Mojave Desert Jeep Adventure.

We’re not real really sure what you call this particular format but “trench racing” seems to fit the bill, and it’s probably the world’s shortest off-road race to boot. It’s interesting to note the different strategies of the drivers in this video. Some enter fast only to bounce off the opposite wall, while others crawl off the ledge and maintain a steady speed up the other side. Regardless, our hat’s off to whoever came up with this unique and very spectator friendly sport, also known as the world’s shortest off-road race. Check it out.
Not all thrill seekers get their kicks at 100 mph or flying through the air. No, plenty of fun can be had crawling along at just a few mph. Michael Hernandez puts his Jeep on the edge as he navigates this obstacle using every bit of bite the sidewall of his tires have.
