Giving It All Away For Adventure

This is the tenth month of the GeoStash contest with only two more months to go for the year. The staff here at 4 WHEEL DRIVE & SPORT UTILITY MAGAZINE has been having a great time with the contest. The feedback and participation have been phenomenal.

The most recent winner of GeoStash is Chad Holland of Yucca Valley, California. He found the May '06 marker and has won a set of Skyjacker shocks. Here is Chad's tale:

"My friend and I found the coordinates at about 7:00 p.m. and decided to go ahead and go for it in the dark. Both of us were familiar with the area from past hunting trips. We got to within about a half-mile of it in the truck and hiked the rest of the way. We spent about 15 minutes searching on and around the boulders then found it in a large crack. It was a great time. Thanks for the fun."

The GeoStash prize for July '06 is a set of eXTREME Rings from Superlift Suspension Systems. They are available for just about any Dana, GM, Corporate, Dodge, or Ford differential. The eXTREME Ring differential protector is constructed entirely of laser-cut, 1-inch steel plate for strength and an exact fit. The ring reinforces the seal area while providing valuable front and rear differential cover protection. For durability, the rings are finished in yellow/gold zinc chromate.
