Rori Lewis is the navigator for Team RLT (Roads Less Traveled). A California native and avid animal lover, Rori works during the week assisting the crew at Total Chaos Fabrication. When she has time to play, Rori loves spending the weekend exploring all the great outdoors has to offer with her (incredibly supportive) husband Erik and their dog Irie.
Having just turned 32 prior to last years’ competition, Rori knew she was ready to push herself to a new level. As she was searching for that next adventure, she heard about the Rebelle Rally. Instantly she knew she had to participate. As an off-roading veteran, the Rally offered Rori the challenge of learning how to be a true navigator and use her determination with no technology to get her and her partner, Tiffany, across 1,300 miles of dirt roads, sand dunes, and open desert. However, it was the life impact Rori most appreciated through her experience last year.
“I can’t wait to find out how I’m able to apply what I learned last year and perform even better this year! Also, it will be exciting to see many of the returning faces and meet the new amazing women who will be taking the same journey I am.”
Tiffany Walker, the driver for Team Roads Less Traveled, is originally from Topeka, KS, but she now makes her home at the foot of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, CO. When she’s not advocating for children in poverty at Compassion International, she’s spending time off-roading in the Rockies with her husband and dogs.
A lover of the outdoors and needing to try something new in life, Tiffany saw the 2017 Rebelle Rally as the chance to challenge herself and discover what she was really made of in this season of her life. Tiffany wants to use her participation in the Rebelle Rally to encourage other women to push themselves and to not be afraid to try something out of the ordinary.
“Rori and I surprised ourselves in 2017 by placing higher than we had hoped. We were the only rookie team to land in the Top 10 last year – finishing 7th! We will continue to push ourselves this year, but have promised each other not to lose sight of the fun and the journey we will be taking together.”
The challenges and chances for adventure are what make Tiffany Walker and her navigator, Rori Lewis, such well-matched team.

We are going to be driving in some of the most remote, yet iconic locations in the United States. They are most certainly Roads Less Traveled. Plus, when you take Rori ‘(R) and Tiffany (T), RLT just works! And of course, there’s Robert Frost…, ‘I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.’
