      San Rafael Swell Reconnoiter – Southeastern Utah Off-Road Adventure

      (New for 2021) The San Rafael Swell in central Utah is a dramatic landscape. The Swell is located about 20 miles west of Green River and 150 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah. Eons ago, tremendous geologic upheavals formed a giant dome of rock - a "swell" in the earth's surface. The area’s slot canyons, mesas, pinnacles, and arches are testament to the sculpting powers of wind and water. The area is large and remote but has a rich human history. Native Americans, mountain men, cowboys, outlaws, prospectors, and pioneers have all be part of the Swell’s landscape. In conjunction with the area’s history, the San Rafael Swell’s topography provides vehicle-supported adventurers with the experience of a lifetime. This 3-day, 3-night tour is a breathtaking overlanding adventure. Cost: $450 per vehicle. Tour Terms and Conditions – READ CAREFULLY Prior to Sign-Up • Cancellation Policy. FULL refunds (TicketLeap credit card fees and tour fee) for ALL tours are only possible up to 30-days AFTER ticket purchase. Thirty-one days after ticket purchase and up to 30-days prior to the first day of the tour, only the tour fee can be refunded. No refunds are possible 29-days prior to the first day of the tour. • Vehicle Requirements. All vehicles must have 4-Lo gearing capability, reasonable ground clearance, seat belts for all passengers, plus front and rear frame-mounted recovery points. A trailer hitch in the rear can serve as a frame-mounted recovery point. You must have a full-size spare tire – no “donut” spares allowed. On this tour, you must NOT use a hitch-mounted tow ball, cargo "basket," spare tire mount, or bicycle rack on the rear of your truck. You must not have anything attached to your rear truck trailer hitch. Also: DO NOT COME WITH CAMPER RISERS ON FOUR CORNERS. • Vehicle Self-Assessment. It is the sole responsibility of each participant to make sure his or her vehicle is in TOP mechanical condition. “Top condition” means mechanically sound to the manufacturer’s specification, plus, no fluid leaks, dangling wires/cables, bad tires, or repetitive squeaks while moving. Be courteous to others on the tour – do not come with a vehicle that is not in TOP condition. If you are in doubt that your vehicle is not in top condition, then it probably isn’t. • Remote Backcountry Vehicle Breakdowns. With appropriate considerations for the entire group, Off-Road Safety Academy may assist with the repair and/or towing of a broken-down vehicle. However, professional towing of a disabled vehicle may be needed. Most towing insurance is not applicable when off-road (AAA, roadside assistance, etc.). If you breakdown in the backcountry, it may be necessary to organize special off-road towing of your vehicle. Often times professional off-road specific towing is very expensive and requires the use of a credit card to begin extraction. These expenses will be the sole responsibility of the tour participant whose vehicle is disabled. Off-Road Safety Academy will be able to communicate with these services in the backcountry. • Self-Reliance. Each outing is an overlanding-style tour. This means camping at different locations each night and each vehicle being completely self-reliant (food, water, fuel, vehicle in superb working order, sleeping accommodations, human waste, etc.). If you do not have a camper toilet, you will need to bring a PETT-style toilet and disposable bags. We must haul out our trash and solid body waste. • Extra Fuel. Participants will need at least 3-5 gallons of extra fuel (unless you have a 400-mile fuel cell/tank). This fuel must be stored in compliant and legal containers and stored outside the vehicle. (Extra fuel is not needed for the Baja Tour.) • Environmental Sensitivity. Please use biodegradable dish/hand cleaning liquids while in the backcountry (Dr. Bonners or Ms. Meyers). At most camping sites you must not discharge wastewater on the ground – shower, kitchen, cooking, or washing water. • Changes in the Trip’s Itinerary: Off-Road Safety Academy’s tours are conducted in the natural environment. As such, tours are subject to bad weather; trail washouts, and other unforeseen conditions. To the best of the tour leader’s ability, all tours will be conducted as advertised. However, unforeseen conditions may cause the tour to be modified based on trip safety. Each tour participant must come with a flexible and self-reliant attitude and ability. Group safety will always come before the objective of reaching the advertised destinations. • Medical Self-Assessment and SAR Expenses. Off-roading and overlanding have inherent risks. Included are the risks of an illness or injury in a remote location. All tours will be conducted within a location that is remote by both distance and time to Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and local hospitals. Off-Road Safety Academy does not require pre-tour medical screening to join the organized outing. By enrolling in the tour, you are certifying that you are medically capable of participating. Should you experience an unfortunate medical condition during the tour, requiring emergency extraction from the backcountry, participants will be responsible for any/all Search And Rescue (SAR) or helicopter expenses. • Pet Policy. Pets are welcome on the tours (EXCEPT the Baja Tour), but owners must adhere to National Park and BLM regulations. Pets must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet at all times. Pets may never be left unattended. Pet excrement must be collected and disposed of in garbage receptacles. Pets may not enter government buildings or backcountry dwellings. • Children Passengers. Well behaved, school-age children are always welcome on the Tours. • Driver Requirements. Each driver must be a licensed driver with proper vehicle insurance. All state and local driving laws apply while off-road on this tour. Drivers must adhere to these regulations. • Paper Work. Each tour participant must complete and sign a registration form that includes emergency contact information and tour guidelines and notes. Each tour participant must complete and sign Off-Road Safety Academy’s Liability Release and Assumption of Risk form. • Car-To-Car Communications. The tour leader will provide you with a handheld Rugged Radio for use in your vehicle during the tour. Via radio, the leader will provide historical, biological, geological and 4WD information and tips while we drive. San Rafael Swell Tour 2021 - $450.00
