The Ultimate Adventure technically starts with check-in and tech inspection, but in reality the trip starts for all a few days earlier as vehicle preparation drags on through late nights and into planned departure times. The true adventure begins when tires hit asphalt spinning. Once the group checks in and addresses any last-minute repairs or tech inspection issues they load up and follow leader Rick Péwé trekking to the Nebraska Sand Hills where they await steep climbs, narrow gullies, and plenty of trees before reaching a 3-foot water crossing at Dismal River. Fred Williams, editor of Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road and host of Dirt Every Day, tags along with his custom made 1990 Dodge Tug Truck prepped to tow out any stragglers,.
