Vehicle 360 and Gear Checkup

4 comments

Another cool session:

Three Amigos is running a drop in clinic 9-11am Saturday. We are calling it the "Vehicle 360 and Gear Checkup" drop in.

Basically, bring your truck and recovery gear over to the wooded area during the drop in times, and they will give it a once over, letting you know if your recovery points are safe, that your gear is adequate for the loads that you are putting on it, that your straps are still in good shape, etc.

Most of us have a few pieces of dubious equipment in our kit, this is an opportunity to have an instructor let you know what bits you need to retire, as well as pointing out what key bits of gear you may want to add to your kit.

This is a 2 hour block on the schedule, but each person will likely only need 10 minutes with the team, although you may have a few folks in line ahead of you when you arrive, so plan your morning accordingly. If you don't want to pack up your rig and drive it over, just bring over any pieces of gear you are unsure about, or just hang out and learn from the team reviewing other people's recovery kits.

The Three Amigos are I4WDA trainers, not retailers, so they won't be trying to sell you any gear, just looking out for your safety on the trail.

As someone who has experienced some poorly timed gear failures this year. GO DO THIS. The Three Amigos know what they're talking about and will help get you squared away.

Very cool offering. My question is, do we get to see the salute?

  • Hi all, We are on the heels of the NW Overland Rally in a few weeks. The Team and I have been super busy with Life and getting more content for all of you to take advantage of for the Summer. So, we have decided to not have a booth this year, but instead, isolate a section of the Rally camp area for NWOL members to circle the wagons and extend the community aspect at the Rally. With that, we will be hosting a members appreciation Happy Hour in the group camp area instead of the main vendor area. This gives us a chance to shake hands, chat and extend our thanks to you all for your continued support over the years. We will be creating an event sign up and if you plan to attend the Rally and camp in the designated NWOL camp area, please sign up!
  • Hey everyone, the 2019 rally is looking awesome! Lots of new presenters, fun vendors, more instructors and classes, and we've rented more field space to spread out even more. I forget to check all the forums, so post questions here and I will try to respond, but for a faster response just post any questions on our FaceBook page, it gives us an immediate notice when we get a question. Cheers Ray
