    Hoping to get some fundamentals out of it, since I know only very little. Also get 2 nights camping and a BBQ on Saturday.

    Classroom instruction consists of a narrated slide presentation: Topics such as back roads driving etiquette, how to avoid dangerous situations, and getting your vehicle unstuck are discussed. Students are encouraged to ask questions and participate in classroom discussions. A demonstration related to vehicle recovery basics is also provided.

    Trails rated as "easy" to "moderately-difficult" are driven in the park where you will be able to put your newly acquired off-road driving skills to use. Students and their vehicles will be divided into groups and guided by instructors along well marked routes. CB radios are helpful in communicating directly with the trail guides as well as other students.

    One-on-one instruction will be provided to guide you and your vehicle through Tire Placement, Stair Steps, Frame Twister, Hill Climb, and Off-camber exercises. While students are encouraged to drive through all of the obstacles in order to get the most from this hands-on clinic, full participation is never mandatory.

    Esprit de Four conducts two safety clinics per year: one during the Spring and one during the Fall. Each clinic is approximately eight hours long and is held on a Saturday or Sunday at Hollister Hills State Vehicular Recreational Area in Hollister Hills, California.

    Sounds great I think I ran with you at the Rummy run a few months ago. Have fun I can’t do the 2 days this weekend but maybe another time. Happy trails

    I know you didn't ask me but I was researching it too.

    This event was fun and informative.

    Saturday started at 9am with a shuttle ride to the Hollister Hills main entrance, where an air conditioned classroom was provided. The slideshow/lecture period lasted about 2.5 hours and ended with a shuttle ride back to Area 5 for a quick lunch. After lunch, your group heads off to the trails, obstacles and courses. There where 4 groups of 10 vehicles. Each lead by an instructor, with a mid-instructor and tail-end instructor. We all communicated by FRS radio.

    The event ended around 5pm and a BBQ was provided.
