'09 Rules and Application

Are you ready to go on a four-wheeling adventure of a lifetime? Do you think you and your rig have what it takes to drive more than 1,000 miles mixing in extreme trails, grueling road days, and sleeping in the wilderness? This is no two-week pleasure cruise, but if you love wheeling, wrenching, and camping it doesn't get any better than the Ultimate Adventure. If you think you have what it takes to come on next year's trip then read the following rules and requirements and send your personal and vehicular info with a photo, description, and something about yourself that would be interesting to the group, to 4-Wheel & Off-Road Ultimate Adventure, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. We need all applications here by March 1, 2009, and we'll let you know if you're chosen by April 1, 2009. And for you Internet-savvy readers feel free to apply online at

Rules for Ultimate Adventure 2009

*No whiners!

*We are not responsible for you during this event. *We will use the buddy system so you are partnered with another vehicle throughout this adventure. If you do not find a buddy before the first trail day, we will help you find one. Don't worry about it. We're all friends.

*We will try to stick together and help everyone, but with a group of this size, it will not always be practical to delay the group for one or two people.

*Only one vehicle allowed per invitee, and only two people per vehicle.

*Vehicles must be driven (not towed) on the entire Ultimate Adventure.

*Vehicle may be towed to repair location--the intent of the no-trailer rule is to enforce the pavement portion of the adventure.

*The group will leave as close as possible to posted times--don't be late or you may be left behind.

*Bring overnight gear with your trail rig (sleeping bag, food, water, and so on) for unplanned situations--don't depend on a support vehicle or trailer along the way.

*Participants are responsible for all of their own expenses (food, lodging, fuel, repairs, fees, and other expenses).

*No pets and no children under 18 years old on the event.

*You are considered a representative of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine, as well as an adult, and a representative of the four-wheeling community as a whole. It is important to hold yourself to the highest standards of behavior as we are on display to the entire nation. We expect you to behave accordingly.

*Alcohol consumption will not be tolerated on trails or any time you are driving. Passengers may not drink on trails. Violators will get one verbal warning; the second offense removes you from the Ultimate Adventure.

*Illegal drug use will not be tolerated any time during the tour. There is no warning--first offense gets you removed from the Ultimate Adventure.


*This is a 4-Wheel & Off-Road event designed to entertain our readers and offer promotional value to Ultimate Adventure sponsors. In order to protect the marketing value, Ultimate Adventure offers to its sponsors, only official sponsor's lettering and/or logos are allowed to be displayed on the Ultimate Adventure vehicles. Your vehicle must be stripped of all lettering/logos not part of the Ultimate Adventure. You will be supplied with logos from the sponsors should you wish to run them, as well as Ultimate Adventure logos for your vehicle which must be applied.

Vehicle/Driver Requirements

*There will be a tech inspection at check-in. Your vehicle will be inspected for all of the following equipment and paperwork. You will not be allowed to join Ultimate Adventure if your vehicle fails this inspection.

*Vehicle must be street licensed and insured, and driver must have a valid driver's license, current registration, and current proof of insurance.

*Front and rear lockers (limited slips do not suffice)

*Must be self-sufficient (bring your own spares, tools, jack, and trail food)


*Rollbar (rollcage preferred)

*First-aid kit

*Seatbelts for all occupants, worn always

*Adequate tow-strap/winch attachment points front and rear

*Battery hold-down

*35-inch minimum tire size

*Working CB

*Fire extinguisher

*Tow strap and jack

Projected Dates

*Each year we shoot for the end of June or beginning of July. This will require you to be ready to start the event within this time. Ample time will be given to make preparations for hotel and trailer arrangements, but this is an adventure and as such, dates and locations are subject to change. In addition, you are responsible for all of your own expenses.
