Observe Tread Lightly rules!
When winching, use of a tree saver strap is

it damages or kills the tree. Put a blanket, jacket or other
object over the unwound cable to absorb the tension if the cable
breaks. Carry a winch kit, including tree strap, snatch block
and clevis. Wear leather gloves when handling winch cable.
No littering. Members are encouraged to pick up
cans, bottles and refuse left by other people and carry it out
for proper disposal.
Maintain vehicles in a safe operational
condition, including license plate and state tag where required,
brakes, set belts for every occupant, fire extinguisher, first
aid kit, CB radio, proper lights, proper vehicle height, muffler
and/or spark arrestor, roll bar/cage, spare tire, jack,
flashlight, shovel, tree saver strap, snatch block and tools.
Secure all loose objects in your vehicle before moving!
Participants must have liability insurance and
other insurance required by home state. Medical insurance is
recommended. Driver must have a valid driverís license.
Always keep vehicle behind you in sight. Be sure
he doesnít miss any turn you made. Do not tailgate the vehicle
in front of you. Rollback or reverse maneuvering is always
likely in mountainous terrain.
Assist disabled vehicles whether they are a
member of CNC-4x4 or not. Offer to help bring disabled vehicle
out of forest. Help others, as you would have them help you.
Each member is asked to enforce these rules
within his club and group of friends. The trail boss or leader
cannot be everywhere, so it is the responsibility of all members
to uphold the good name of the club and association. If someone
you do not know is breaking these rules, politely ask them to
stop and give them a copy of these rules. If they continue,
record their license plate number and report them to the trail
boss or appropriate law enforcement.
