Day 4 of Ultimate Adventure 2018 #UA2018Posted in Ultimate Adventure: 2018 on June 28, 2018
Traditionally the Ultimate Adventure has alternated between “wheeling days” that are spent with the hubs locked and the Falken tires aired down, and “road days” that covered hundreds of miles of backroads en route to the next wheeling location. This year has been different though, as each day has covered miles on pavement, but has also necessitated a shift into low range. Day 4 was no different, as the day started by breaking down camp and traveling back roads through the lush New England forest as we repeatedly weaved our way in and out of New Hampshire and Vermont. Along the way the group passed through Windsor, known as the birthplace of Vermont, where the constitution of Vermont was drafted in 1777 prior to the state joining the Union.
After crossing over the Connecticut River via covered bridges, passing numerous Revolution-era cemeteries, and sailing by saw mills that date back centuries, we met up with members of the Eastern 4Wheelers, the oldest 4x4 club in Connecticut. They have been the curators of a 62-acre parcel of land for the past 20 years, developing trails over the rock outcrops and between the trees on the property. Traction was at a premium on the numerous climbs, but the weather held out until it was time to venture on to Pittsfield, Massachusetts. As the sun set, the skies opened up and dumped rain into the open top buggies and Jeeps. The forecast isn’t looking good for Day 5 either, so check back soon to see if we survive the weather and wheeling along the East Coast.
