Re: Hunter Range, Saturday 16 March 2013


Hi Gail don't stress too much about recovery gear for this trip. I have it all. In general, however, you should as minimum carry an appropriate snatch strap, a shovel and rated shackles if travelling with another vehicle. If travelling alone all of the above plus winches, maxtraxx etc. A chainsaw is not really part of recovery gear but can be valuable in the bush. I carry a hatchet which usually takes care of small stuff. I also have drag chains so I can move any larger obstructions (to a limit of course).

As far as recovery points, the front point is fine for winching and OK for snatching if only lightly stuck. A tow bar would be an ideal rear recovery point. Again, for this trip, I don't see anyone getting stuck but if you do we will figure something out.

In summary, for this trip if you have a snatch strap, shovel and shackles bring them. If you don't then not a big deal.

Hi Gail.
As Todd has indicated this outing suits unmodified xtrails. I can assure you that if there is any need to use recovery techniques for your vehicle, and I am confident there wont be a need, then you will have all the assistance from other members that you require.
By all means bring what recovery gear you have and eventually you can add to that gear as your off road experience increases.
I have been on forum outings and have had to be winched out using other members gear....everyone was so keen to help out that it eased any concerns that I had.

cheers and c u Saturday

Hi Guys and Girls,
Have charged up the camera and am nerous but looking forward to this Sat with the expected rain.
Hope to get a shot of my Strez to add to my signature (?Avatar).

Just bring your own food. It's too hard to try and provide for everyone so it's every 'man' for themselves.

Hi Todd,
Any swimming holes along the way........aircon OK but you can't beat a dip in the water for a really refreshing experience.

cheers

Sadly there isn't Dave. The only option would be to stop at the Colo River on the way back down the Putty Road at the end of the day.
