START THE ENGINE
TURN the key and start the engine, with your right foot covering the brakes, your left foot off the clutch, and the 4x4 in reverse. It may hesitate to turn over, but when it starts you’ll be driving backwards. Stay off the brakes and use engine braking for a controlled descent. If you’re uncertain reversing, looking over your shoulder is a sure-fire way to get disorientated. You’re better off using both mirrors, with both hands on the wheel. To go right, pull the steering wheel down with your right hand; to go left, pull the wheel with your left hand.
