    See requirements are your own recovery gear. Wonder if someone can just maybe give in more detail what that will be? I have the basics, spade, recovery strap, Hi-Lift jack, fire wood, but not something like a genetic recovery rope.

    Thanks.

    Will it be able to show up at the Eiland, without booking, and hope on a camping spot, as it is a longweekend?

    Those genetic recoveries are best left to the scientists.

    Why are you always in such a bad mood? Experience...

    Hi Hendrick, to answer your question, the following needs to be explained: The terrain, as can be imagined will consist of riverbed sand, mud and rocks. The chances of you getting bogged in muddy sand is extremely high, and this is where the fun starts. It is a mission to get you out of a real boghole. So a good recovery strap or rope is a must (And for me the only recovery strap or rope, is a kinetic one), and this includes recovery points on your vehicle that it can be fastened to... You also need some rated bridals and some rated shackles. Seeing as some of the guys have invested some good money into their recovery gear, and the fact that these items are limited in the amount of times they can be used, it would be wrong for another guy to expect that he uses someone else's goodies. It is thus best, to have your own, so that you use it for yourself If you really have not got anything available feel free to contact me and we can make a plan. We want you on the trip, and if this is a deal breaker for you, I can make a plan. But I will need to know beforehand.

    Should proper recovery points not be a requirement for participating vehicles? Would be interesting to have to snatch a vehicle with no proper recovery points i would imagine.

    As long as you have a tow bar and ball kinetic recoveries are easy.
