Have an off-road vehicle but have never really understood it's capabilities and/or limits? Want to drive your vehicle off-road but don't know where to begin? That's were Outdoors in the Smokies come in! They offer low pressure instruction and learning with both "classroom" dialog and plenty of hands on driving!

Instruction covers a crawl - walk - run approach and includes:

  • Review of YOUR vehicle specifics, recommended equipment (safety, extraction, emergency, etc) to have on hand (you borrow ours for training if you don't have it yet), off road assessment and route selection, equipment management / vehicle survivability, obstacle approach,  winching/extraction techniques, and more! 
  • After classroom time, we hit the trails... I lead out in mine, and you drive YOUR vehicle and get hands on trail time! If you do not have a CB, I let you borrow one so we can communicate and dialog about upcoming obstacles, preferred lines, and more. Often, we stop for discussion and application of learned skills as well.
