As shotgunner, you are responsible for opening and closing all manual vehicle gates to any areas your party may travel in while shotgun is in your control. When exiting the vehicle to open and close a gate you, as gatekeeper, retain your control of shotgun. You cannot lose shotgun due to leaving a vehicle to open and close a gate. However, if you take on ANY other task, other than opening or closing the gate, causing your party to be delayed, your shotgun rights may be forfeited. If you take on another task, and no one calls shotgun in that time, and you make it back to the vehicle, the Sit Down Rule takes effect.
