The second cardinal rule of 4-wheeling is to always go with one or more other vehicles - the buddy system. But -- not everyone can follow this rule. And some of us just like to be by ourselves! (Rule 1 - if you are wondering - is let someone know where you are going and when you will be back.)

If you wheel enough sooner or later you are going to get stuck. Without another vehicle to pull you out, go into town for parts or go for help, you need to rely on the tools, know-how and skills you have.

In this hands-on clinic, you will practice many ways to get unstuck. The techniques used will depend on the terrain stuck in - mud, snow, ditches, rocks, etc. and the tools and resources available. We will not climb on, hang on or push vehicles to get them unstuck. This is not a safe practice.

We will examine the uses of alternative anchors / deadman; alternatives to winching; use of winch, using natural materials, items in the vehicle such as mats, firewood & rugs. the spare tire, recovery straps, Hi-lift jack, bottle jack, mats, rugs, winch, firewood, rocks,
