Winching and Recovery

A class recommended for any skill level and any age group. This class will cover a variety of topics related to winching, recovery, and personal/group safety. It is offered in both half and full day classes. 

Vehicle Skills

Designed to suit any adventurer. Learn to marshal and be marshaled. Understand the reason behind your vehicles approach, breakover, and departure angles. Learn to control wheelspin. Test your nerves on a failed hill climb or off camber crawl. The class is available in a full day only, though a variety of topics can be arranged for the day.

Mechanical Skills

A great introduction to the knowledge base one must maintain for travel in treacherous conditions. Can you repair an alternator with no output? Bypass a stuck solenoid on a starter?  The beginner class is for you.  Know how a u-joint operates but not how to change it? De-bead, repair, and re-bead a tire? See the intermediate class. Want to know how to weld in the field? Unsure of what to do after drowning a vehicle? See the advanced class.  Each level is offered as a half day class with the ability to combine two levels for a full day.
