Ultimate Adventure involves coordinating a large group of people. That is just a fact. Getting all these folks to the same place at the same time on-road or off- is generally a miracle. Add in vehicle failures, straining bladders, and differing opinions and know that keeping things on track is best described the idiom of herding cats; stubborn, stubborn cats. Communication is key and up until UA2016 communication on the trip was dubious at best. In the past we used CBs, cell phones, hand signals, offensive gestures, paper notes pinned to trees, smoke signals, and more, to get the cats on down the road and trail. With the happy addition of Rugged Radios as Official Communications of the 2016 Ultimate Adventure, coordinating the group functioned like a well-oiled machine. Gone are the days of garbled CB messages and waving arms to get the cats to turn around. Rugged Radio’s Dual Band RM-25R 25 Watt Radios for each vehicle and RH-5R dual band Handheld Radio for the co-drivers made communications on UA 2016 a breeze…no more cats meowing and licking paws.
