TRAVELLING BACK COUNTRY ROADS

Back Country travel can be an amazing experience but common sense  should be used and preparations made before heading out … because this could happen, a flat caused by driving over the little itty bitty rock pictured on the hood of the truck !!!! little itty bitty rocks which everyone knows are EVERYWHERE!!!

flat

so you need one of these

repairman

and probably one of these too … to supervise

Mc

you should also watch for these, previous back country explorers will often try to mark hazards with whatever is at hand… we carry bright yellow CAUTION TAPE…

road conditions

and you will encounter ROAD WORK CREWS out and about anywhere and everywhere, frequent rains and storms cause rock falls, mud slides, and washouts, potholes and sinkholes will appear … or culvert repairs like this will be happening… crews will endeavour to make way … but a short wait or a detour may be required …

ROAD WORK
