PostSubject: Winching and Recovery 101   Fri Sep 19, 2008 8:29 am

Tico the last time we did a club run with a focus of recovery was 3 years ago at Paragon. I know alot of you have a winch on your rig and know how to use it in a safe and effective maner. This run is for all those that either plan to buy one, have one and has never used it or those that just want to get in a little practice using a winch. Also we will be reviewing the use of other recovery tools that many of us have in our rigs.

The plan is to let everyone that is interested in this post and let me know when is a good weekend to do this. club runs are normally the best time to do this. I only want to do this on a Saturday morning till lunch time Then the rest of the day is light wheeling. Sunday will be a optional day of wheel which I will be running my normal blues blacks and reds.

This is a perfect Way for all those newbies we have wondering in the back ground wanting to learn more about wheeling there rig. My only requirements for this is that you have tow hooks and a spare. I will have at least my two rigs going. Any of the normal guys I wheel with are welcome to come help with this. Remember if your planning on running Sunday, your on your own if you want to only run greens and blues unless someone wants to run the light crowd around on Sunday. All questions and comments are welcome.

That's about right!, Although the last time I do recall was when Paul Sobwick rolled his Jeep on the hill off the main trail at the Paragon. We need a good class to show members how to do things and be creative too. so getting stuck in hard lines may also be good to do. They need to learn the use of the snach block, tree savers, d-rings, straps, winches, double pulls and so forth. Every vehicle should have at minimum a hook on the front and the back, that's mandatory to club vehicles.

Let me know what you need to organize it.

Tony are you asking me to Flop your Jeep? I could make that happen I have already had both the Jeep and the Toy on the side. The comp area is full of great places to flop a jeep.

even if you have a roll bar you can still mess up your jeep pretty good. If I were you I wouldn't want to mess up your jeep just so it can be winch back over.

I have never actually laid it over... twice I was very uncomfortable with the balance (Paragon on Muddy Pipe Line when Patty/Veronica tried to yank me up the hill and I almost flopped... and RC last November when I got stuck getting into Rock Garden and high centered a tree on the diffs... scratch )

All I am saying is the way I drive I am due... and if it happens, well... I know you guys will set me right and get me rolling again... (ummm... no pun intended cheers )

This plan kinda reminds me of the cross country trip where my brother and I hatched a way to lure a Bison into the moving truck... of course the wives took it waaaaaaaaaaay to seriously and figured we were crazy enough to do it... asdasfferrgf

good time to check connections too. At Rock Run my winch wasn't functioning. really haven't used it since Tellico and my connections came loose. Save some time on the trail.
