Spend a weekend camping and training with Overland Experts at our NC Course.

Friday, November 15  Evening arrival. Camping and community.

Saturday, November 16: Fundamentals of off-road driving with progression into vehicle recovery.

Later in the evening our friends from Apex Overland and LFD Off-Road will join us for a Q&A about vehicle builds, equipment, trips, and all things Overland!

Sunday, November 17: Continue from Saturday with more vehicle recovery & conclusion of the course.

We will be primitive camping at our training facility. You will need to supply your own camping gear, food, etc.

Saturday in Detail:  Providing a full day of foundation 4WD training, Saturday follows our Fundamentals Class structured for those new to driving off-road. (Or even those just looking for a quick refresher!)  You will learn the OEX Five Systems Method of operating a four-wheel-drive vehicle, as well as the OEX Five Steps to Negotiating any Obstacle.

Sunday in Detail: Whether you drive a purpose-built rig or one of the many all-wheel-drive vehicles on the road today, Sunday follows our Recovery Workshop and is the best way to learn about safe and effective vehicle recovery. You’ll spend a few hours in a group setting learning about and getting hands-on with recovery gear and technique. From traction “aids” to straps and ropes, pulleys, winches, and everything in between, you’ll better understand and use recovery gear in the most effective and safe manner possible to get your vehicle back on the road and back home.

Some of what you’ll learn:

  • Recovery gear identification and use
  • Static vs. kinetic recovery, its meaning, use, benefits, and pitfalls
  • Winch use and safety, including hand signals, winch and line care/maintenance, steel vs. synthetic line, rigging (compound and a single line), and pulley use in both re-direct and mechanical advantage scenarios
  • Traction aids (sand and bridging ladders/mats)
  • The Hi-Lift Jack as a recovery tool; Its safe and proper use as a jack and come-along
  • Gear choice and specification

OEX follows and recognizes the Tread Lightly principles of off road vehicle travel and operation.
