Placerville, CA to the Rubicon Trail and Coffee from a Helicopter - Ultimate Adventure 2016

Part 3 of Ultimate Adventure 2016. Sleep? We don’t need no stinkin’ sleep on Ultimate Adventure! What do you do when you spend most of the night making repairs in your hotel parking lot? That’s right – you get up bright and early before the sun is up, make more repairs, and then head out for the trail! In this case, that trail happens to be the most famous in the world: the Rubicon. Everybody with a 4×4 has dreamed of running it. Now, no matter where you live you can come along with the Ultimate Adventure as it locks the hubs and drops through the Gatekeeper at the beginning of the Rubicon Trail for the first time since UA hit this trail on the 2001 Ultimate Adventure. We shuffled ahead of a couple big groups airing down to get our foot in the door and earn a clean shot to our campsite half-way through at Buck Island Lake. And thanks to a pretty severe winter and the fact that we hit the trial rather early in the season before most of the big Jamborees rolled through, the Rubicon was all kinds of torn up and extra-challenging. We definitely put the Warn winches and Bubba Rope recovery product to the test on this one. And just when you think we’re done for the day and it’s siesta time, here comes the helicopter with our afternoon cups of coffee. Only on the UA!
