No real idea where I was going because I dont know the sylvester area,but im on vacation who cares where i am or go lol

Got to this area and was thinking it was way over my ability and was about to turn around when...

my co-pilot spotted a jeep,and was he in a heap a trouble!! Below pic is how we saw it with no one around.

So we pulled in and I got my recovery gear out,by then the owner and wife arrived. And they were overjoyed to see someone who would help. Guy has been there since the early morning. Got stuck up top on a stump,got out,then got stuck backing up,and so the recovery begins.

Dude was friendly and very very thankful but clueless,climbing through that stuff in a stocker with zero recovery gear not even a jack for his spare. I guess it was good practice for me because in the end its not enough to carry the gear you have to be able to use it.

Wheelin alone isnt that bad IF your prepared I do it all the time.. Carry more gear ( including food and water )than you think you'll need,have the rig to get you there and back again,and tell someone where your going. [cheers]

thanks for the link lol... now if someone would just buy it :p

also didn't know hi-lift made a recovery kit just found it on there site and totally gonna buy that as I always carry a hi-lift and straps so would be beneficial as I have done it before the way you did and re-adjusting those straps is a PITA

the other thing id recommend is either buy or make a base(I carry 2 1' 2x4 that bolt together and 1 - 3' 2x6) for the winch cause it sucks searching for a log/rock etc to use as a base when you watch your winch sink into the mud :p and to complete your hi-lift kit some sand tracks work wonders http://www.amazon.co.uk/Traction-Tracks-Wheel-Grips-Grass/dp/B0049A7MMG as its often easier to lift a vehicle and place on these and have it drive itself out. and if you drive a mid 90's f-250 all of this gear/jack fits under the back seat.

sand ladders work 10x better than you would expect too so dont underestimate their true awesomeness :p
