DJ dreamed of going off-road, though he was built for the road. DJ got the parts he needed and he was ready to hit the trails. He ran into some bullies who had nothing nice to say to him. Even though he dreamed of wheeling, DJ was scared of getting stuck in the mud, breaking down, and being stranded. DJ met more off-roaders the next day at the park but they were kind to him. Hooper, the leader of the group, invited him to go off-roading and though DJ was scared and anxious, he agreed to join them. That night he was reminded of his fears of going on the mountain roads and he remembered his father's words. Would DJ be able to move forward and reach the top?
