If you're into the thrills and excitement of 4WD, Mt. Wellington in Tasmania is one of the best places to consider. You can take the Spirit of Tasmania in order to get to the island, which is a great choice if you prefer to bring your vehicle from the mainland. The Jefferys Track is one of the most popular 4WD routes, along with the East West Trail and the Ringwood Trail.

So you should know by now just how useful a spotter can be when you’re trying to get across a rough patch, and it’s pretty hard to do without one for rock crawling. Having a mate on the ground to watch your wheels makes it a lot easier to keep moving and avoid getting stuck. At least it does if you can understand what they’re trying to tell you. When you’re sitting in the cab and they’re standing out front, with a big engine roaring away between you both, the chances of you understanding what they’re saying are pretty slim. You could always get some use out of your hands-free kit but who phones someone five metres away? Forget that; the way ahead is hand signals.

If you’ve ever done any rock crawling you’ll know how vital spotting is, but it’s an art any off road driver can use. Basically it’s simple; someone outside the vehicle watches the wheels and the ground, and talks the driver forward (usually with hand signals, but some people like a two-way radio). That might seem a bit weird, but think about it; from the driver’s seat you can’t see the wheels or the ground right in front of them, and when you’re trying to pick your way through rocks, a rough streambed or a bad muddy patch that can get you in trouble pretty quickly.

Etiquette. Bit of a poncy word, isn’t it? What does it have to do with the rufty tufty world of off-road driving?
Turns out... A lot.
