SHOUTOUTS!

4 Wheel & Off Road - - MEET THE STAFF -

While not of­fi­cial spon­sors, we had some help on UA 2018 that can­not go un­men­tioned.

1. Tiger Le­Brun has come on the Ul­ti­mate Ad­ven­ture in the past, so he knew what he was get­ting into. He and his wife, Re­nee, kept the video pro­duc­tion crew fed, hy­drated, and run­ning hard all week long. As the su­per­vi­sor of 4x4 pro­duc­tion at Quigley Mo­tor Com­pany, Le­Brun had the per­fect ve­hi­cle to haul our video crew (not to men­tion all of their gear) all over New Eng­land. The Quigley E-350 of­fered vo­lu­mi­nous dry, lock­able stor­age that no other ve­hi­cle on the trip could match and un­par­al­leled of­froad van per­for­mance.

We aren’t be­ing overly dra­matic—Lyme Dis­ease runs ram­pant in this part of the coun­try. Crony Tom Boyd co­or­di­nated with Sawyer to en­sure that ev­ery­one on the event had plenty of Sawyer per­me­thrin to treat our clothes and camp­ing gear, and pi­caridin to ap­ply to our skin. The prod­ucts proved in­cred­i­bly ef­fec­tive, and ev­ery­one en­joyed an itch­free Ul­ti­mate Ad­ven­ture thanks to Sawyer. INFO: Sawyer, sawyer. com. 3. Each year, UA T-shirts, coozies, stick­ers, and other swag are dis­trib­uted in a duf­fle bag. The past two years the bags we used may as well have been trash bags due to their dis­pos­able na­ture. This year things were different though. The Right­line 4x4 Auto Duf­fels we dis­trib­uted are con­structed from PVC-coated mesh and use sealed zip­pers to en­sure that they are weath­er­proof. Rather than a keep­sake to hang in the garage, these bags are func­tional pieces of equip­ment that can be used to or­ga­nize cloth­ing, camp­ing gear, and re­cov­ery equip­ment for years to come.
