PLAN YOUR ES­CAPE

4 x 4 Australia - - 4x4 Techniques -

NOW is the time to plan your es­cape. It’s im­por­tant to iden­tify ex­actly where you in­tend to stop. Is there a side track you can steer into and turn around? Will you need to ne­go­ti­ate a tricky sec­tion of track in re­verse? Are there any sharp cor­ners you’ll need to plot your way around? If the track be­hind you is any­thing more than a straight run back­wards, you’ll need a plan for each ob­sta­cle. If your pas­sen­ger is able, it’s a good idea to have them walk back down the hill be­side you as a sec­ond set of eyes.
