Default Offroad instructions

"When I got to teach offroading...."The thread(currently placed on page 10) by this title was started by SAMURAI, a respected member of TBHP.
It was fun writing and also honest admissions of how the first offraoder graduated from his "school of offroading".
I am seriously looking at someone from our 4X4 forum who can give valueable tips for beginners in offroading, All guys like me who have done offroading but never in rallys, will improve big time if we armed with 10 tips on how to handle the various situations on this subject.
All can add to the thread but only tried techniques please.

It would have been correct to say, When I got to learn offroading initially...

That went over my head like a Yuvraj Sixer! What exactly does that mean in this context?

trammway,
"When I got to teach offroading" is a direct reference to thread (page 10) started by Samurai, which I am referring to. As already mentioned.

@fazalaliadil: You should join us in some of our small OTR and nature photography sessions. I will PM you the next time around. We usually head out on sundays. There is no better way to learn than to drive yourself (An instructor in your passenger seat would be of great help.). Reading about off roading is good to a certain extent but actually experiencing it is completely different.

I completely agree with cooldude. Last Sat was my first OTR ans there is nothing like have a moderator in the passenger seat through some of the very difficult terrains. I read in one of the posts by Khan_sultan which I can also second that - its the driver of the 4x4 which matter and not so much the vehicle. I had learnt so much "on the job" at the last OTR. Reading the same on the web forum may not have had the same impact.

I also agree with all my respected Offroader friends that you will only learn when you drive on different terrains.

Every terrain has its own complications

@Samurai, read the post by fazalaliadil, I thought he is asking the tricks and the how we learnt the offroading at first time.


If my understanding is correct, I posted saying as the explanation starting"It would have been correct to say, When I got to learn offroading initially..."


I know I confused you guys again!

Cooldude,
Thanks for your invite, I am looking forward and will definately take up your offer with my camera and 400mm zoom.There is no better way of learning practically but at the same time tips from various seasoned offroaders will also be helpful as theory.
Sincerely,
Fazal
