The Ultimate Adventure is an annual event that mixes some of the hardest trails with long highway runs over several states. 4 Wheel & Off-Road Magazine invited some of its staff and loyal readers to take a seven day journey where driving skills are put to the test.

The Hagel’s drove first to Michigan to drop off their tow vehicle. The couple then took their 1969 K&N sponsored Jeepster and drove 600 miles to the Ultimate Adventure starting point in Butler, Pennsylvania.

“One of the requirements for our road days is to go at least 150 miles without having to stop for fuel,” said Terra Hagel. “No problem, at last calculation we can go 156 miles before we need fuel in our 13 gallon tank.”

The Hagel’s made it to the first trail area called 6 Points for a driver’s meeting and began to tackle their first trail.

“We promise to make K&N proud,” said Hagel. “We’ll keep everyone posted as we head to a new location each day. Wish us luck.”

During the 2008 Ultimate Adventure 19 vehicles began the trip in South Dakota and 19 vehicles finished in Northern Colorado. Only three made it through without some sort of breakage.

The Hagel’s will drive the plains, over steep hills and rocks for some of the most intense trail action as they head to their next destination.
