Mud driving recovery tips:
If you go driving in wet weather your are almost always going to experience mud driving, mud puddle or sloshy roads. First off it pays to carry all the right gear in your vehicle. Fistly if you do happen to get stuck in mud don't try and drive yourself out you'll just dig yourself deeper. I great tip I find is try to reverse back the way you came, in most cases this will work a treat and you won't need to get your recovery gear all muddy. If this fails its time for plan B the best option is to try and find as much traction as possible this is where a set of Recovery Tracks is ideal otherwise anything that will give you more traction branches, rocks or anything your tires will grip.
Recovery in mud is hard, dirty work, however if you have all the right gear and know how to use it can be very simple. So before you head offroad make sure you grab some gear that will make your trip safe and enjoyable.
