    Testimony from a student in our 12 November 2016 -6 Hour Winch/Recovery Class!

    Hi Scott,
    Thank you again for such a great class yesterday. I think that it was perfectly taught and full of information. I am already planning to do some winching practice with my jeep and winch. Unfortunately, my new jeep already has a warn winch on it, or I would be purchasing a Superwinch. I really appreciate all of the information and will be equipping my recover bag accordingly. I look forward to the upcoming 4WD 101 class on Dec 3 and will get signed up for it sometime this week.
    Respectfully,
    Rob

    Scott:


    The 6 hour+ winch class you guys taught on Saturday was great! Thank you. I am so glad I waited to buy a winch until after the class.


    Also, thanks for starting the day with prayer.


    In health,
