5 Things to Know About Your First Off-Road Adventure

An off-road adventure is often a fascinating experience. However, it can be scary, especially if you don’t know the basics. You need to take some few minutes to prepare yourself and the vehicle. Here are critical steps you might want to consider.

Know Your Vehicle

Take the vehicle’s manufacturer’s manual and read through it to help you know how it works. For instance, you need to determine whether the vehicle has a high or low ground clearance.
