One of the coolest things about California, without question, is driving from the beach to the mountains. Few other places in the world offer this unique road trip opportunity. Whether you want to catch the morning surf, or spend the afternoon on the slopes, California is built from a rugged terrain that begs to be put to the test. Within a few short hours, you can do both of these activities and so much more. To prove it, Male Standard was invited by Chevy on a once in a lifetime road trip adventure.
We put man and machine to the test by driving across the state to see what we could accomplish. The results? An incredible day that everyone will remember! From the moment the sun rose across the low tide, to the final cheers on the chilled slope, the Chevy Z71 is a lot like CA – both have a lot to offer and really know how to go the extra mile. We found ourselves completely immersed in adventure.
We were amazed at the comfort Chevy had to offer when traveling across California. Whether we were on the highway, or trekking through a hot and humid forest looking for the next slope to mount, we knew we were in good hands. The Z71 had all the top of the line amenities you would expect from any luxury sedan, wrapped in a badass exterior build for the wilderness and off-roading.
To up the ante, we started at the coastline and tore across country with a bunch of friends, heading towards the mountains. The view was stellar and the drive itself was part of the adventure. If you are getting itchy feet, then we definitely recommend breaking out of the shackles of city living and heading out on adventure. Your whole body, mind, and soul will thank you for it!
And don’t forget to take your friends! Chevy knew that we would love doing this journey all by ourselves, but having people to share it with took it to a whole new level. We wouldn’t have the memories to share or the wild look in our eyes of travelers who ventured into uncharted territory. We don’t say it enough, but we love you guys and we love our Male Standard HQ right here in Orange County, CA! Show some State pride by letting us know why your State is the one to visit for the ultimate road trip!
