    Vehicle events open to Eastern Washington Adventures members - The Rules

    The basic rules for Eastern Washington Adventures vehicle events
    Please follow this basic rules or we will have to ask you not to come back.

    Trail Etiquette

    1. Have food, drinks, cold weather gear, First aid kit, and recovery gear on or in your vehicle. A CB radio and Fire extinguisher if you have a rig.
    2. Make sure your vehicle is road/trail worthy and legal.
    3. Don't leave the convoy without talking to the Trail Boss.
    4. If you don’t see the vehicle behind you within a few minutes, stop. Wait until you can see the vehicle again before going on.
    5. Stop and wait at intersection for the vehicle behind you so they know which way to turn.
    6. Tread Lightly! Stay on roads and trails.
    7. Pack it in, Pack it out!
    8. Keep your speed down when meeting others on your path and around camps.
    9. Drive safe.
    10. Respect all the Trail Boss's decisions. See Trail Boss below.
    11. Be safe and courteous to others.

    Snow Wheeling Rules: Do not leave the road/trail at all if there isn't enough snow where resource damage can happen, do not to get to far off the road/trail when snow wheeling and no cross country travel at anytime.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Trail Boss
    The trail boss determines the roads/trails to be taken, the vehicles allowed to go, the line up of vehicles, the time to stop and the time to go. Please respect the Trail Bosses decisions. Do not leave the group unless you talk to the trail boss. This is for your safety and the safety of others.

    Tail Gunner
    The last vehicle in a the convoy. The tail gunner is responsible for making sure everyone finishes the trail. Temporary position appointed by the Trail Boss.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Suggestion to all the full size guys, get locked up and get a winch before you take your full size on snow runs. If you are the only full size, you may have to leave your vehicle until someone in another full size comes up to pull it out. One other thing about snow wheelin’ a full size, expected to get body damage when running the tight trails. Even the smaller rigs get damage from these snow covered trails, but just not as much.

    Some runs are not open to all vehicles
    There are some runs that Stock rigs and open diff rigs will not be able to go on. Does not matter what size or make of rig. Some runs if you are not running a big enough tire and have lockers you will not make it. No one wants to spend the day doing recovery on a rigs that wasn't set up for that run. There are other runs that not being locked up is just a safety issue. Death.

    Not all runs require CBs anymore but it is a good idea for safety and to know what is happening. We do make exceptions to this rule as long as you stay with another rig with a CB that has your back.

    On some snow runs it is hard to know if someone can not make a hill climb if they don't have a CB since some of these climbs rigs can not stop until the top and the group get spread out.

    In the summer we have had people get lost since they were hanging back out of the dust. They did not hear on the CB we made a turn and the guy in front of them forgot to wait to make sure the guy behind him saw where to turn off.
