We were glad to have our truck camper wreck and recovery featured on Truck Camper Adventures online magazine. Our hope is to get the word out to fellow boondockers to be better prepared in case of an accident while traveling off-road. Please be sure to check out our lessons learned regarding insurance and finding help for off-road recovery in Truck Camper Adventure’s interview with us.
Resources at the ready
A good resource for reporting your exact location for help is GoFindMeSAR. This app is preferred by Facebook Recovery Groups that we have talked to due to its accuracy and ease of use. Put this in your cell phone to have handy in the event of an emergency.
Volunteer recovery groups can provide off-road help and recovery. Finding such a group was our saving grace as professional towing companies were reticent to work in our remote location and charged way more than our insurance company was willing to pay. Read all about one such amazing group and get a list of Facebook Recovery Groups in the western states in our informative post.
