The 2022 Four Wheeler Overland Adventure Presented by Jeep began at the town of Goffs just west of Needles, California. Following Registration Day and their first night in the Mojave Desert, participants stacked up in the morning light and prepared to hit the trails.

Trails for the day wound through areas used by General Patton to prepare his troops for combat in the African desert. Patton chose this terrain for its unforgiving and inhospitable nature, hoping that if the soldiers could survive here, they'd be ready for the challenges they'd face while taking on Rommel.

Camp for the night was outside Twentynine Palms, California. Tents sprang from atop the rigs, awnings blossomed like lilies in the spring, and the sounds and smells of camp cookery were abundant. Blacklight-fueled scorpion hunts and aboveground campfire chatter continued beneath the stars.
