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.
