    I do not know how many 4x4 folks are out there. But I like jeeping it through the desert, rocks, mud etc. I usually always bring, a shovel, and my hi-lift, everywhere I go. If there are more than two vehicles out there, and one gets stuck, even if the other vehcile can't help pull you out, you should never ever leave the other people/vehicle there by themelves, and take off. Too many things can happen, and if something does happen, you need that other car/people to go get help, or drive you to get help. This post is not aimed at anyone specifically, just a reminder to anyone who is not familiar with off road/desert etiquette. Do NOT leave anyone behind.

    Sometimes a vehicle is so broken or stuck you have to leave the vehicle. I would try not to leave anybody unless it was the last option. It would have to be a person that is prepared and knows how to survive in the desert. I would have to be 100% positive in driving right back to the same spot and picking them up in a timely manner. I have had to stay behind. I worry about he cannibals. I have alot of money in my jeep. Spare parts, recovery gear and the knowledge to use them will keep most vehicles/people from having to stay behind. JME
    Here is some fun in my jeep.

    There's almost always room on the hood to strap someone to.:tounge_out: Now as far as targets go, phone books and shotguns go hand in hand. :crazy:. But seriously, what brought on this random subject? there's got to be a good story behind it.
