UA 2012 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, 831 S. Douglas El Segundo CA 90245. We need all applications here by March 31, 2012, and we'll let you know if you're chosen by April 15, 2012.

Rules for Ultimate Adventure 2012
*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 always 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. And they must attend the whole trip- no substitutions.
*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 axle lockers (limited slips do not suffice)
*Must be self-sufficient (bring your own spare parts, fluids, tools, food and water)
*Front mounted vehicle recovery winch, and controller
*Winch accessory kit (tree saver, snatch block, clevis, chain, gloves)
*Rollbar with safety handles or grab bars (rollcage preferred)
*Adequate first-aid kit per Red Cross requirements
*Seatbelts for all occupants, always worn when vehicle is in motion
*Adequate recovery tow hooks and/or shackle/clevis attachment points front and rear
*Secure battery hold-down
*35-inch minimum tire size and adequate spare tire
*Functional parking brake
*Properly working CB radio
*Fire extinguisher mounted in reach of occupants
*Snatch strap
*Adequate jack and jack points
*Spill kit and PETT kit

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.

Video, Web, and Magazine Exposure
Inasmuch as the Ultimate Adventure is an edit-based event for the entertainment of the readership, we request that all participant generated video and still photos of the event not be placed on the internet or distributed until the full story has been printed in the magazine. 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine will be creating daily updates and stories for our web and electronic media properties which you can link to on the road. We welcome you blogging and updating your own sites with information prior to the event, but not the whole story or location. Once the event starts please refrain from full updates, or day by day details of the trip or posting to personal or business Facebook sites, web sites, Twitters, or any other sites. We will also have a film crew along with us for the production of a DVD, and you will need to sign their releases since this is not a public event.

Send completed form to:

4-Wheel & Off-Road
831 S. Douglas.
El Segundo, CA 90245
Please include up to five photos
Must be received by March 31, 2012
