Oftentimes, possession of a good winch may stand between driving and walking home. Nevertheless, owning a winch comes at a price. General safety precautions should be taken by anyone handling them. Some of these precautions include: Proper training should be taken so as to clearly understand the working of the winch and how to safely operate it. A no-go zone should be established during the recovery process, in case the winch rope snaps and whiplashes. When handling steel winch ropes, gloves should be used as the winch can develop sharp burrs as it wears that may cause injury. The winch should be tested on a regular basis to ensure its ongoing reliability and safety. After every use of a winch rope, it should be neatly rewound onto the winch drum. Types of Winches Winches can broadly be categorized into electric mechanical winches. Electric Winches Electric winches offer a range of choices.

When Good Hiking Trails Go Bad What happens when a much used hiking trail suddenly goes bad to the point of being unsafe and unusable? How does the trail get fixed? Who pays for the trail restoration effort? How does the restoration project get scheduled and who restores the trail? Hiking trails can go bad for a number of reasons including fire and insect infestation which can drop so many dead and dying trees on a trail that sections become entangled in interlocked limbs. Trees that don’t fall entirely can form interlocked umbrellas of dead limbs and trunks such that over the course of several years they impose a safety hazard as limbs, trees, or previously suspended fractured trunk fragments work free and crash to the ground. And of course sections of hiking trails can slide off into the canyon up against a cliff face or a steep hillside so that either no passage is available or a narrow, dangerous width is all that remains. If I may, I’d like to describe two trails, one that was heavily damaged in the Curve Fire of 2002 (see Curve Fire ) and another trail which has a 15-foot extremely unsafe gap caused by a land slide which carried the trail — and thousands of pounds of San Gabriel granite — down in to the canyon about 500 feet below the trail. Soldier Creek Trail is located in the Crystal Lake Recreation Area of the Angeles National Forest (see Crystal Lake ).
