    Could that be called a Brandy snap ?
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    Eina pyn, that guy will hurt for a few days. Think it better illustrate why bumpers are not recovery points.

    Reminds me of May on top gear when he was knocked down. I majored in Physics, but I don't think it takes more than a little life experience to realise it is a bad idea to stand around with something like that going on right in the business area!

    Thankful that the guy survived though (I assume) as it can so easily have a much worse outcome.

    I don't do much trails and also don't know if there is some etiquette to follow (one person making sure the ropes/straps are attached correctly, one person making sure no-one is standing close to the ropes/straps before the snatch take place, etc) regarding recoveries. Much like a spotter on a trail.

    The only recovery training I got, was a brief affair with a bunch of other people, about what kit to have and how to use them.

    My question regarding the video and general recoveries, Isn't it also up to the driver to warn people or just make sure everyone stay clear before he pulls away?

    Or maybe the rope/strap guy could give the go ahead when it's safe to do so?
