Tonya lives in a remote corner of Colorado, and enjoys the wide-open spaces that the area offers. She has been four wheeling most of her life, with over twenty years in the rock crawling world. She has driven, spotted and been a photographer for various competitive events, and has written a few articles for Compass and 4Low magazines. This will be her first overlanding rally adventure, and she is looking forward to trying something new. Tonya will be driving Princess, a 2002 Toyota Tacoma and may be accompanied by her husband, Chris and son, Garrett. She would like to thank her friends, Shelley and Rich for encouraging her to join the rally and her husband for giving up his Christmas present so she could have a tent.
