After lunch you’ll tackle more challenging terrain & the instructors will also encourage you to make more of the route/gear choices. The obstacles will test the vehicle limits & your off road ability. This will include failed ascent procedures, negotiating cross ruts, steeper inclines & declines, side slopes & weather permitting – water.

Muddy Ruts

Don’t get stuck in a rut! Avoid if possible & if not then try to straddle a rut or pack to lessen the depth of rutted ground to increase ground clearance therefore avoid contact or damage to the underneath of the vehicle.
