Introducing TreadWright TrailBlazer Miguel Robles
Meet TreadWright Trailblazer Miguel Robles out of Salinas, California. Known for his incredible photos on Instagram featuring his 2015 Jeep Wrangler JKU Sports Unlimited. Miguel aka Valley_JKU has slowly been gaining recognition in the off-roading and jeep community with features on Jeeps official Instagram page, TreadWrights and many other highly touted brands.
It is Miguel's consistent quality photography, expeditions, and pride he takes in his rig that keeps his popularity in the community ascending. Miguel started his rock crawling and outdoor overlanding as a hobby, but it quickly became a lifestyle after meeting numerous like-minded individuals out on the trails that felt like family. Now the lifestyle consumes Miguel's free time as he itches for the moment to be off work to be out on the trials experiencing, living and submerging himself in an outdoor adventure.
Miguel isn't an expert nor a novice he is still learning from each trip jotting notes and learning from his faults. Miguel currently devotes an adequate amount of time planning his micro-adventures ensuring he is well prepared. For more extended expeditions, one can find Miguel meticulously planning out the details of the excursion 2-3 months in advance.
We recently asked Miguel what his favorite trail/expedition was and he responded, "Calico ghost town! It is a fun experience with slick rocks in lake alpine. Though I am looking forward to finally hitting the Rubicon trail."
Expedition Planning Tip:
Miguel recommends that you always over pack and be over prepared! You can never have too many spare parts, clothes, and tools. It's always better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it!
