Re: Reverse winching
Unfortuantely, here in AZ, you'd not only have to pack the snatch blocks and the straps, but you'd have to bring the trees too.
How about just carying 4 Pul-pals?!
The whole concept is mostly just an excercise or drill to see if it can be done but it is so impractical as to be pretty near worthless.
I wheel alone a lot because I am retired and can go when others can't. I have been stuck a few times where a reverse winching would have been nice. Insted I just winched on thru/over the obstacle, turned around and winched back. I know that is not always possible, but so far it has saved me a long walk or two.
Also I have a mantra that is always playing in my head when faced with a potential sticky situation, especially when alone:
"when in doubt, chicken out"
Works better than a truckload of snatchblocks every time!
