WOHVA recently hosted an event with SE WI Jeeples, sharing our knowledge & experiences concerning responsible off highway trail riding activities.
The day started out with an open discussion on extraction tools and techniques, do’s & don’ts and what’s new & cool. Following this discussion was a demonstration on up righting a vehicle using a winch vehicle(s) to both get it back on its wheels as well as a vehicle as a counter balance for a safe and soft landing.
Next up was a trail ride on 2 local private properties. The first property provided experience in mud with hands on training on how to properly use a recovery strap to extricate a vehicle when stuck. The second property offered more technical challenges with a small rock crawl which transitioned to a steep hill climb followed by an opportunity to test a driver’s skill in a controlled descent.
After a short lunch break we had a Treadlightly!® Awareness course and conversation on multiple user groups sharing trails and a Myth or Fact Q & A with real world scenarios.
This was an awesome event; weather was great and just a good time all around! WOHVA would like to thank the private land owners that allowed us to provide this educational opportunity!
In closing, participants and guides had a great time. Again WOHVA was pleased to provide this opportunity.
