By the way guys ... I never did get any input on my request to learn about recovering my youth last night! And I heard nothing about your claim (Lars) that there would be some hair recovery techniques discussed too. WTF!!!

We need to cover tree savers as a refresher. I have started noticing winch cables wrapped around trees again both on the trail and on TV.

Kevin was never young, I heard he was spawned as a full grown man.

Is that anything like only getting up once per night to pee? If so, I'm looking for that too.

Who is volunteering to write an article for Toyota Trails about proper recovery techniques?

I have two Rc trucks, one with a winch. We can flip one and recover it.

This was the day we tried to kill Dan and Kevin. Both trucks had their winches extended as far as they could go.

Keeping at least three wraps on the drum. One wrap across the bottom is even better.

We couldn't quite reach so we used a winch extension that wasn't very long. The winch extension shouldn't have had any stretch to it and we considered it static. Under full pull, the strap broke and recoiled both hooks under both cars.

Lesson learned? Don't winch with anything kinetic, even if you think it may not be. Only use static ropes, cables, extensions, etc.

Another notable issue in this picture. One 80 is Barefoot and one is not! Obviously, running around barefoot will recover your youth!

Reviving this oldie but goodie.

We're heading into our recovery night meeting!!

So far the plan is to meet in the jefco fairgrounds parking lot. Tim has agreed to do a winching demo, but the rest is up to you.

What should we cover? Who wants to volunteer to show some folks proper hi-lift techniques and all the other stuff we will cover?

Would you guys like a synopsis of the training with Bill Burke?

I'll post up an agenda and who's doing what in the events section as soon as we get things nailed down.

Cheers!!

I don't know if anyone has one, but I've always been curious to see how an exhaust jack works like the ARB X Jack. I've used a hi lift quite a bit in the past and have thought about replacing with something a little safer...
