Educate our fellow club members and friends with good recovery techniques. Know when it is time to put away the strap and use the winch. I am very greatful that the only damage I saw was to Gary's front hub studs and a tow strap that only tore 3/4 of the way through.
Thanks for the good time.
I agree Farnham
