Hand winch creek crossing

Lucy helping on truck creek crossing day

We got a little stuck, but the hand winch made short work of pulling it free.

Another reason to have a 4x4 quad! Sometimes a vehicle is really bogged down, but often all one needs is just a small tug to get to a spot with traction and a quad can come in mighty handy for such a thing.
