A GRAVELSTOKE ADVENTURE
We've created a special event for our friends here in North County and beyond, a hunt that takes gravelers to 5 predetermined locations on dirt throughout the North.
Your goal, gather all 5 pieces of uniquely colored gravel, 1 at each location. The 5 locations will be revealed 24 hours in advance of the event. Hunters are encouraged to go in teams of 2 or more and take the route of their choosing. For each piece of gravel collected, 1 raffle ticket is awarded. If all 5 gathered you get a bonus ticket!
