Going camping is inherently dangerous and risk is a necessary part of it. When you join a Caravan, you open yourself up to so many potential risks, we could not begin to list them all. It is totally impossible for us to go around with you and brush aside all potential danger to you, so we are not offering you any guarantee of safety. Just the opposite, we guarantee that there will be many normal and even some abnormal risks around you. By going to the Caravan, you are agreeing that camping is risky and you join the caravans knowing that you alone are taking on that risk and that Homes On Wheels Alliance, Inc. can not be held liable for any harm that befalls you while at a Caravan Event.
Now for the legal wording that requires your agreement:
Activity Release Agreement & Waiver
By joining a Caravan Group, you (the Participant), and Homes On Wheels Alliance, Inc. (HOWA) do contract and agree as follows:
You, the Participant, hereby release and discharge HOWA, and any representative of HOWA of all claims, causes of actions, liabilities, disputes, demands, damages, agreements, contracts, obligations, promises, debts, and/or accounts of any kind or any nature, whether currently known or unknown, for any damage, loss, injury or death relating to actives at the Caravan, or participation in activities at the Caravan, which you, the Participant, have or may have in the future against HOWA, or any representative of HOWA, specifically applicable to any claims of negligence against HOWA or any representative of HOWA, as well as all other claims as described herein.
By joining the Caravan Event, the Participant agrees to this entire Release and Waiver Agreement.
The Participant understands, acknowledges and agrees that this Release is a final settlement for any and all claims or actions relating to or arising out of Caravan Activities and that Participant has had the opportunity to carefully review the terms of this Release and Waiver Agreement and/or have it examined by an attorney if so desired. Participant further understands that Participant will not be allowed to litigate any claims against HOWA as a consequence of agreeing to this Waiver and Release Agreement, despite any injury that may be sustained during participation in Caravan Activities. The Participant and HOWA are entering into this Release & Waiver Agreement voluntarily.
This Release & Waiver Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous understandings, whether written or oral.
