PASS PATROL MISSION POEM

 
 

It came alive in '85,
Its wheels began to roll,
As a group of friends, women and men,
formed the Pass Patrol.

With weekend supplies and 4-wheel drives,
they seek forgotten trails
To explore the past and help it last
and uncover ghost town tales.

They bounce and bump, over boulders and stumps
and tread water up to the door;

 

They use 4-wheel low, through mud and snow,
in search of tales and lore.Across rivers and creeks,
and snow covered peaks
throughcanyons with mile-high walls

past deserted mines,
through Rocky Mountain pines,
past tumbling clear water falls,

They slip and slide, across the divide,
it's 4-wheelers on the roll.
If your life's a bore, there's gotta be more:
Join the Pass Patrol!

 
 

Larry E Heck (with his Pass Patrol 4x4 Travel Club) was credited by many for generating intense interest in traveling the outback found in the Rocky Mountain States. Larry appeared in numerous TV News clips, sold thousands of guide books, and taught many dozens of people how to explore the outback without damaging it or theirselves.
