A fire-proof bodysuit? Say what? That was my immediate reaction when getting ready for an adventure with Driven Experiences, in Colorado.  As far as Dreams in Heels is aware, this 2.0 mile emerald desert training facility not only serves as a simple driving school, but it is the only place on the world where you get to ride along with experienced former Nascar race drivers in a pro-baja trophy truck. It really pushes the envelope for a high adrenaline adventure experience! The best way to explore Colorado.

For your safety, they put you in a fire-proof bodysuit, a helmet, special gloves and you have to wear closed shoes. No, they did not let me wear my heels. Luckily, my kind, amazing driver gave me his extra pair of sneakers to wear.

Like Marilyn Monroe said: “Give a girl the right kind of shoes and she can conquer the world.”

The Baja Trophy Truck Full Driving Experience


I decided to immerse myself in this full driving experience. With the picturesque backdrop and the beauty of Colorado’s red rock canyons, it was sure to be an adventure that I would never forget. Colorado is truly the ultimate bucket list! The baja trophy truck can go up to 140 mph but for the safety of the guests, they limit the speed to 85 mph. It really is an amazing experience, better than any roller coaster! For those that fall in love with this experience, you can also arrange driving lessons. It is all part of the Driven Experiences’ customized program that combines aggressive styling with advanced off-road technology, to deliver an adrenaline-charged driving experience like no other.

Best news is that near the Driven experiences facilities, there is Gateway Canyons Resort and Spa which is a luxury retreat full of relaxation, education and other adventures to meet your desires and curiosity. Gateway Canyons (Named Best Luxury Resort in Colorado) is owned by John Hendricks, who is the founder and former chairman of Discovery Communications (a broadcasting and film production company which owns the Discovery Channel, TLC and Animal Planet networks, among other ventures).

Dreams in Heels loved the fact that the Hendricks family is involved in every aspect of their business – the President of Driven Experiences is Andrew Hendricks, the son of Mr. Hendricks. And maybe you guessed correctly, he was my amazing driver, the one who let me borrow his shoes.


This time I was living my dreams in sneakers!
