  • Clever Russian recovery technique!

    Although as it was just a Honda CRV, hardly worth recovering!?!

      That was probably the easy part - getting to go would be a different story.

            When I was a young tacker, I was taught at a Ventura camp (scouts) how to extract a landrover that was bogged to the axles using nothing but rope. Very simple; find a sturdy tree, put some protection around it and then go back and forth between the car and the tree about six times. Then insert a stout prepared branch in the middle of the ropes and start turning. The action of the rope coiling around itself pulled the car out quick smart; used this a few times over the years when a winch has note been handy. (has to be a good rope)

            Cheers . . . Mike

              we still teach it at Venturers, along with the spanish windlass, and the easy way to move a log if you only have a a couple of ropes.

                Just had to make sure you stepped backwards if you lost your grip, or you heard a 'CRACK' from the branch!!!

                When I was in Venturers, we never tried things like that as no one trusted us with their vehicle/s, although we were shown the basic techniques!

                  both my pajero and delica have been pulled out of various mock exercises by venturers doing this, its only on the leader training courses when we do it that i have reservations.

                  My own venturers have even driven the delica through Big and little desert on their L plates, which totally freaked out the Patrol club of SA when we were tackling stuff and getting through where their pootrols weren't.
