How to recover - side crest stuck safely in desert?

Recommended Posts

Positioning is very important and then the tug intensity - gradual to constant pull than jerking that may result in flip instantly.

Well done @Emmanuel

Key things for every offroader to notice and learn here:

  • Tried self recovering first to the max.
  • Clear sand from front tires on both sides.
  • Identify a safe spot to recover with least force - Front and left side.
  • Position car with utmost precision to deliver just a minimal tug at right angle.
  • Stuck 4x4 wheels pointing left to support the recovery process by using engine power.
  • Started with a soft tug and then applied a pulling strength and not a jerk to cause a flip.

      in our search to have a decent GPS app to guide us in the desert, today i wanted to review and compare MotionX and Gaia GPS, which are both apps specifically tailored to Off-Road driving or hiking.
      As i had an old Samsung Note 5 laying around which had a very big screen, i decided to use that phone and mount it in my car to use it as a dedicated GPS. Unfortunately when i found out that MotionX is only for IOS platforms, i was forced to look for something else and stumbled upon Gaia GPS.
      In the Youtube tutorial below, this gentleman makes a great comparison and it's worth having a look at:
      As a summary, i come to the following:
      MotionX:
      + Completely Free with full functionality
      + Easy to use, set up
      - No Android support
      - No possibility to create multi-bend tracks
      Gaia GPS:
      + Easy to use and set up
      + Customizable Bar Tiles on the home screen
      + Overlay Maps 
      + Possibility to create multi-bend tracks.
      - FREE version only has only 1 basic Topographic map, but the paid version costs 10USD per year that gives full functionality and satellite map. Full Premium Membership costs 30USD for year in case you want to add more maps and resources, but is more tailored to hiking.
      https://help.gaiagps.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003524547-Free-vs-Membership-vs-Premium-Membership
      Surely there will be more specific PROS and CONS once having used these programs. Please add them in your replies so we can share our hints and tricks to use these great apps.
      Both apps support map download, so you can download the area in case you have no data coverage in that area, or if your phone simply has no SIM card in it
      So there you have it, two apps which are perfectly capable of doing the things we want them to do for our Off-road adventures in the UAE deserts.
      Do share your questions, suggestions, experiences !

      Congratulations @Emmanuel for reaching the Marshal level with Carnity Offroad club. 
      It is one of the most prestigious and sought after title that comes with a lot of hard work, patience, tolerance, and dedication.
      Just like all the levels in Carnity offroad club is "NOT" only based on driving skills but instead based on the combination of your personality + intelligence + team spirit + adventure. This Marshal title is an epitome for all levels in the offroad grading structure.
      So if anyone wants to grow, they can set Marshal as a PERFECT example for not only following the driving style but observing their behavior, teamwork, presence of mind, calculative approach, patience and tolerance to teach and support new offroaders.
      Once again congratulations Emmanuel and best wishes for your next adventure!
