Crossing a Log question.

What would be the best way to cross over a Log? Straight on or at an angle?

Depends how big of a log. If it is over a foot tall then I take a little angle at it under a foot tall I just go over them.

Know nothing SPEAK on everything

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

It depends on your rig and your ground clearance.

Growing up in Oregon, a lot of our "off-roading" was done on old logging roads.

The best way to deal with downed trees? Grab your chainsaw, cut it, winch it out of the way for everyone else. Of course, some of the trees there are too big to deal with any other way, especially in our 1960 CJ.

No saw? Going over at an angle will reduce the chances to high center. Same thing as you do with ditches.

Agreed with what Geoff said. Around here I carry my little limbing saw (20") for situations like this. We will get blow down trees all year long so you never know when you will need it. A tree could actually trap you in, on the trail. You have to know the rules and regs for doing this before hand. Larger trees I will drag out of the way with a strap since I don't have a winch.
A couple of weeks back I had to drag a 4'+diameter Red Fir off the trail and could only make enough room for jeep sized vehicles to get by, isn't that terrible. Hah!
Just getting to work is an adventure.
