Off-Road Recovery

     Recovering stuck vehicles is essential to proper off-road travel. Those experienced in off-roading will tell you first hand, it's not if you’re going to get stuck but when, if you’re exploring the limits of yours & your vehicles abilities. Getting back on the trail & moving again can all be part of the fun when done properly & safely. In Off-Road Basics, we teach you how to drive effectively, and responsibility. In Off-Road Recovery we teach you what to do next, when, winching or recovery are necessary to keep moving.
