A Full Season Of Adventure And Prizes

"I received the magazine the morning of Friday the 13th. I found the coordinates the same day, and by 6:00 p.m. my brother Brandon Reichow, my girlfriend Paula Swanson, and I headed out to Rapid City, South Dakota. We arrived at the general location of Silver City Road at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday. We took a nap for a bit and then at 7:00 a.m. we prayed and then started our hike. Forty-five minutes later, while hiking to look at a little wooden cross, I found the GeoStash marker!"

The winner for December's GeoStash contest is Chad Reichow from Chisago City, Minnesota. He brought along his beautiful girlfriend Paula and his brother Brandon. Read Chad's story below.

Chad has won a very cool universal tri-link suspension system from Full-Traction Suspension. The universal tri-link system is for Jeep TJ and LJ Unlimited models with existing 4-inch, four-link suspension systems. This kit upgrades the Jeep to a three-link rear suspension. The system includes all necessary mounting hardware and is fully bolt-on to all factory Dana 30 and Dana 44 axles.

If you are picking up this magazine for the first time, somewhere in the pages of 4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility each month are hidden GPS coordinates. These coordinates pinpoint a location somewhere in the continental U.S. A stainless steel plate ("marker") laser-cut with the magazine's title and my phone number can be found there. The marker is about the size of a vehicle's license plate. When it is found and redeemed, the lucky enthusiast wins a very cool prize. These prizes will range from products donated by our advertisers and manufacturers to 4WD&SU magazine apparel and subscriptions.

The GPS coordinates in the magazine can be hidden just about anywhere. The coordinates will be divided in two parts - north and west - and hidden in the magazine's text or ghost-imaged somewhere on a photograph. The coordinates will not be hidden in or on any advertising. Finding the marker on the trail will require use of four-wheel drive and some hiking. We'll keep it safe, so don't worry, you won't have to rappel off the sides of any cliffs. The stainless steel marker may be placed behind trees, between rocks, or under something, but it will not be completely buried. If you have a GPS with WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) it should get you to within 3 to 9 feet of the marker.
