Things you need to know!

-This challenge will begin on Friday evening and end Sunday afternoon. If you are coming in from out of town, you will need to provide for your own food and other accommodations throughout the weekend.
-Orientation will be Friday evening at 7pm and is MANDATORY for all participants. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you don’t come, you won’t play.
-All challenges will be within a 7 mile radius of Kanab. You will need a form of transportation. There will be terrain difficulty that you need to pay attention to depending on your vehicle. Anything above a terrain 3, you will most likely need 4 wheel drive, however, 4 wheel drive is not required to play or win this game. If you choose to try a terrain 3 without 4 wheel drive, use your own judgement and coordinates to determine if you might be better off to get out on foot or choose a different challenge. Kanab -Treasure Quest is not responsible for any injury or damages.

The more stars the harder is becomes! 1 stars is VERY Kid Friendly! In this area, we have a lot of sand, if there is sand at a challenge location and you MAY or MAY NOT need a 4-wheel drive vehicle, is is at least an instant 3 on Terrain. 4 stars and up on Terrain - please DO NOT attempt without a 4-wheel drive vehicle. 4-wheel drive is definitely not needed as there are plenty of other challenges where you can get your points! Just remember, 1 is the easiest, 5 is the hardest! Be safe and have fun!
