First Time Wheelin

So I have an interesting question. What happens if you are miles deep into the woods and your rig breaks down for whatever reason. What does someone do? I plan on going out for the first time tomorrow with my 9 year old son and it makes me a little nervous.

thats why we don't wheel alone. and if i do venture out of the pack, i have my cb to keep in touch.

The only place i would wheel by myself is at an offroad park. There should be people to assist you buy most of them are douchebags and will winch you out for a hefty price.

My family and I go on "excursions" into cattle country and can get pretty far away from civilization. We have two boys (2 and 5 next week) and when we go out we make sure that we have everything we need to stay overnight and to walk back out the next day if necessary. We don't do anything crazy either.

Better plan than what I have suggested...don't go out alone.
