Have You Been Here Before?
This is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Have you ever been here? Taken a family trip through any of its endless routes? Traversed the numerous mountain caps? Or maybe you have a landscape calendar sitting at your desk right now inspired by the location. Where is it? Well, snoop through the pages of this issue to locate all five clues and you'll find out. Good luck!

The Rules
Each month we will share with you a partial section to a topographic map that locates a national park, body of water, trail system, mountain range, or another outdoor destination somewhere in the continental United States. The secret location can only be discovered by looking for clues in the magazine. We will be hiding a select number of words within the pages of each issue that will give you clues revealing the secret location. We will inform you every month how many words you need to be searching for. Should your detective and mapping skills help you locate the destination, send us an e-mail immediately to, and if you're the first with the correct answer, you win! Please include in the subject line of your e-mail which month you're submitting an answer for. Each month of Map Detective (12 months) has a specified start date and end date. These dates are listed on 4WD&SU's website at Answers received before those dates will not be considered. The first participant to e-mail the correct answer after any specified start date for that month will win. Complete rules for the contest can be found on 4WD&SU's website.

The Clues
This month you'll be searching the magazine for six separate clues. These words or phrases will stand out from normal text in a different color and boldface type. They can be found anywhere and on any page except for within an advertisement. These words can either form a sentence or be separate descriptive words providing distinct clues.

The Goods
December's prize is the new DVD from White Knight Productions, Over and Out. If you're an avid reader of 4WD&SU, then you know we reviewed this DVD a few months back. We enjoyed watching this film over and over and thought we should pass on the fun to one of our lucky readers. The film takes you through the fast-paced world of rock-racing with XRRA action to the much more slow-paced adventure trails at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. The White Knight crew even traveled into Canada to show us what those crazy northerners were up to at the Alberta Tough Challenge. If you aren't this month's winning Map Detective, you can get your own copy of this DVD by visiting White Knight's website at
