Plenty of hands-on field demos were conducted throughout the weekend, too, offering expert advice to attendees with subjects such as tire and trailer repair. At the vehicle recovery workshop we attended, newbies learned the basics of safe winching techniques, the proper use of clevises, tow straps and tree-savers, and how to turn your Hi-Lift and safety chains into emergency extraction devices. Useful tips for newcomers, and a welcome remedial course for veterans alike.
