Well, on Pirate 4x4, Billavista (screen name of Bill Ansell, a captain in the Canadian Military whose specialty is AntiSubmarine Warfare) created something that is much better than what I read online years ago and has come up with two flowcharts that basically describe the safe recovery guidelines that I've used in the past.

Tell the guys from the U.A. I had to get out My winch bag when they had to winch in the mud . They said it was to hard to dig theirs out They did try a coat for a Minute after I said something. That didnt look the best so I went and got mine.
