1 – Not Preparing For An EmergencyOne of the main thrills of off-roading is that you’re in a place you really shouldn’t be – not legally speaking, of course, but naturally. Without an off-road vehicle that you can rely on, you’d risk prolonged exposure to the elements and likely succumb to your fate in about a week. That’s what makes it fun. But it’s not fun when an emergency happens and you aren’t prepared to handle it. Before taking off on one of our amazing St. George off-road trails, make sure you have emergency supplies and equipment on hand.
- A first aid kit
- Plenty of extra food and water
- A change of shoes
- Warm clothing (clothing that would keep you warm if you had to spend the night)
- Tow chain
- Long-range walkie talkies
When it comes to St. George winter off-roading, you need to be prepared. In this post, we’ll be providing essential tips for your next snowy adventure.
Equipment You Need
Tow Hooks, a Snatch Strap, & a Winch
You guessed it, while winter off-roading in St. George, off-road parts should include the basics you’ll need to get yourself or someone else up and driving again if they end up stuck in the snow. It’s also a good idea to bring a snow shovel to help dig out tires, frames, and axles if the vehicle is in deep enough.
Any vehicle should be equipped with the ability to handle basic daily commutes and even some well-traveled dirt roads here and there. For most people, this is all they need from their vehicle – but if you’re reading this right now, you probably need something more than the basics. Off-roaders need to know their vehicle has what it takes to brave off-road trails (or lack thereof).
In this day and age, transportation is an indispensable component of our lives; moving about by air, land, and sea. Transportation is so important; it’s actually an indivisible component, or sector, of financial exchanges. Planes, shipping, rail, and trucks are all amazing means of moving anything to and from anywhere, at any time, for any reason. The primary purpose is to relocate people and products. Specifically, trucks, which come in all styles, sizes, shapes, and power, seamlessly traverse the roads of the world (and “off”) delivering things from one place to another, facilitating the demands of mankind. Trucks exist in basically 2 forms, utility vs pleasure. Utility encompasses payload hauling, and work functions; while pleasure is flavor, feel, and fun. Part of that pleasure arrangement is gaming and adventure … “off-road” excitement.
