Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures is a show that follows Mark Holt and Terrance Prochaska and their four-wheel adventures through the deserts in the western part of the country. The guys are taking the roads less traveled to explore and find adventure, meet interesting people and tell stories about these places in the desert that most don't know. Exploring ghost towns, mines and other intriguing desert locales, Mark says there are a lot of hidden gems out there. Unfortunately, today's expediency based society does not place much value in a slow down kind of lifestyle where we go back and appreciate things from the past like Route 66. However, Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures embraces the backroads, small towns, local people, peculiar landmarks and the historical importance of some of these forgotten places. They also recognize the opportunity they provide for anyone to explore and have fun.
Not only does the show scratch the itch for exploration and adventure, but it also offers intensity and thrill as well. Mark talks about a serious encounter they had with gold miners while filming who thought the Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures team had stolen some of their gold. Working to sort out the situation, Mark says it was intense and real. He also talks about their visit to Slab City in California and while it may look strange from the outside looking in, their experience there was revealing and helped them understand the people that call it home and the reasons for doing so.
The show is much more than just four-wheeling, of which there is plenty, but it's also about the characters they meet along the way, and the true adventure that still awaits in this world that is separate and away from the fast paced city life. Mark says he hasn't found a better way yet to slow down and relax than to go out, explore and bask in the deafening silence of the desert. "There is something about it that just stirs my soul," Mark says.
Listen in as Mark Holt, co-host of "Rubber Foot Buffalo Adventures", Fridays at 7:00 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel talks about the new thrill-seeking show that highlights four-wheel, off-roading adventure in the western United States and the surprising adventures that await there.
