Via Tierra off-road clinic.  


The most important quality for a driver to learn is "smooth elegance" for any off-road driving.

We may never get into extreme Rock Crawling, but here we learn some of the basics.

Step the front wheels up onto the object.

Stop on top, using left foot on the brake.

Notice one wheel is ahead of the other? Less power needed to climb onto the "log."

It is important to ease off of the object slowly.

Otherwise the car will bounce down on the springs with possible damage, especially to the body behind the rear wheels..

A short break for lunch.  
A few dark clouds are moving in.  
A proud Granddad Gene, he made an easygoing passenger.
 A lot of brush and rocks.

What goes up must come down.
