I think that's 30-45 minutes from Pizmo. There are a few trails there (Pozo, Garcia Ridge and a couple of others). Garcia Ridge is usually over grown and give people some good pin stripes. Pozo is a lot like what you see there, a fire road. There are some nice stair steps you can climb. The pucker factor is up there since it is a nice drop on both sides.

Using reverse to yank somebody out is a bad idea. Trust me, I've learned the hard way. Get rear tow points and yank them going forward, unless you want to break something.

I hate using chains to pull people out....after all the damn stories that I heard of those things snapping?!

well..reverse is your lowest gear..so its an easier pull..

normally ill pop open my hood just incase..and the other strap was back at camp..that was the only time we used the chain..

so, it's better to grenade your whole front diff in the process just to be in a slightly lower gear?? plueeeze.

The gears are also about 30% or more weaker running in reverse.

notice Dick said 'gears', plural, not just the front ones ;) It has to do with how gears are cut.

does anybody have directions on how to get to the Pozo Trail from SLO. I'm heading down there on the 12th and would love to hit it up. Thanks.

I think we turned off 101 onto hwy 58 east but from there I'd have to look at a map...that I don't have right now :(

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=San+Luis+Obispo&ll=35.385691,-120.580273&spn=0.017284,0.022668&hl=en
here's the turn off from 58 to Pozo rd. but, I vaguely remember turning onto Parkhill Rd a little further up 58.

hit up Bobbinelli for better directions.
