Getting Unstuck
Every four-wheeler has to face it eventually. Whether it's in the rocks, mud, or sand, the day will come when you get well and truly stuck. When the moment of truth arrives, you'll either climb out of your rig confident that you know what to do, or you'll sit there silently cursing your ill luck. For those who prefer to be as well armed as possible, Bill Burke's new video, Getting Unstuck, is the perfect introduction to winching and extrication techniques that can help you out of virtually any situation.

As the owner of 4Wheeling America, Bill has decades of trail experience, and in this two-hour video, he brings his expertise to bear. Starting with the basics, Bill goes through all the pieces of equipment four-wheelers should be familiar with before they attempt to extricate a stuck rig. He points out the technical specs for each item, then discusses safe and proper usage.

From there, it's all hands-on demonstrations of the many different ways you can choose to extricate your trail rig. Bill takes the viewer from beaches and deserts to mountainous rocks and water crossings, explaining appropriate techniques every step of the way, as well as common mistakes that you can learn to avoid.

In Getting Unstuck, Bill Burke has laid out a well-grounded plan of attack that can see you safely through just about any extrication. If you're new to four-wheeling, Getting Unstuck should be required viewing. If you've just been lucky so far, give this video a try before your luck runs out.
