Yesterday at Hollister Hills, Safety Clinic - pics

I took this clinic in 2014 and came back again this year. It is hosted by a local club, Esprit de Four. I tried to go last year but came down with a bug of some sort. So this is my second time at this clinic.

It is a good day. You show up around 7:30-8am and have a vehicle inspection and paperwork. Then we go into a classroom where they review off-roading basic rules and techniques, do's and don'ts, extraction techniques and equipment, and plenty of time for Q & A. They are a helpful group.

After lunch we hit the trails - they mapped out two routes through Hollister Hills, each route a mix of easy, mostly medium, and a bit of hard (black diamond) sections. There are some technical skill-builders such as tire placement, close approach forward & backward, stopping & starting on a hill, off-camber turns, and the obstacle course.

Here we are at the obstacle called Stair-Stepper.

Re: Yesterday at Hollister Hills, Safety Clinic - pics

Last picture. We've been on the trails and we're about to climb the mini ravine so we park and walk up to the beginning of the ravine part for the spotters to talk us through it.

The picture is of the rigs in our group, the green group.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1463984921.586263.jpg

It was a fun day and I'm lucky that Hollister Hills is only 90 minutes away from home.
