When you find yourself in a rut, stop digging in. Let the winchman run with the cable, find a tree trunk or set up a land anchor. It requires not just stamina but agility to crawl in and out of a stuck or submerged 4WD. Hand signalling and guidance skills are also critical to vehicle recovery. As in life, many relationships are ruined because of miscommunication and usurping of roles in the heat of the moment.
