Comments for Drive the dirt trail without fear of getting stuck

  • Sure, they only cost $324, and then they have to be stored.

    I prefer to drive the 4 x 4 toad first to check out the proposed boondocking site.

    • Save your money and cut up old rugs about a foot wide and either in a roll or cut to whatever length you choose to do the job. Besides you have likely always hated that orange shag in the front room anyway. Enjoy the outdoors

  • Always get out and walk your route before plowing into a ‘situation’. I’ve got a 12,000 lb winch on my tow vehicle but I NEVER want to use it for anything besides yanking tree stumps out of my front yard . . .

  • In the article: “When I think of all the great boondocking campsites that I would have missed if I had been a bit hesitant … yet I never had to call for a tow and have gotten myself stuck several times.”

    My question: Do you drive a 4wd or 2wd vehicle? Seems to me that it’s a lot easier to have that bold spirit if you’re driving a 4wd! But I like Val’s suggestion to use old rugs cut to size.
