RAM® Employee Adventures: Off Roading at Naches TrailBy Bryden McGrath
September 21, 2018
With RAM® Mounts being located in Seattle, we’re surrounded by water, forests, and mountains – world-class outdoor activities are just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
That’s why we’re excited to start featuring RAM® employee adventures. RAM® employees use the products they design, build, market, and sell in their daily lives, often coming up with new hacks and new uses depending on the activity.
Off Roading at Naches Trail in the Cascades
To start off, we’re highlighting the off roading adventure of four RAM® employees – Lance, Ben, Nick, Michael, and friends.
They headed out to Naches Trail, an old pioneer route traversed by wagons back in the mid-1800s. Located in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, some vehicles being more stock than the others made this a fun 4×4 challenge as they made their way through the old growth forest and scenery. The trail included roots, rocks, and flex sections with some three-wheeling along the way.

GoPro Mount on Canopy Tracks and Cross Bars
Utilizing the Thule canopy tracks, Lance was able to attach the RAM® 1″ Track-Ball™ via the stainless steel T-bolt. With a short arm and the RAM® universal action camera adapter, the setup was complete. This dependable track mounting solution provides stability as well as vibration dampening for your device.
Mounting CB and Ham Radios
There are multiple ways to secure your CB or ham radio in the cab while keeping your cup holders free to use for, well, drinks.
Michael uses the RAM® X-Grip® universal holder for his ham radio, making it easy to swap out with a phone when your radio isn’t in use. For Nick’s Cobra CB mic, he takes advantage of the RAM® Tough-Box™ clip base connected to a diamond base and RAM® Twist-Lock™ suction cup.
