We all started somewhere with our passion for the outdoors, off road, and getting away from it all. For many of us, that person was a family member who was close to us. For me, it was my Dad and my Great Grandfather who fostered that desire to get out in nature.

The other items that fostered that desire to be outdoors and enjoying the world were the toys. The trucks, the green army men, and the pieces of gear that resembled tents, sleeping bags, and more.

Here are 5 of the coolest off-road toys available today!
