All Trips MUST Be Rated - Trip Classification Codes

Postby bludgerswife » Tue Oct 21, 2008 6:47 pm

All trips must be rated as per the trip classification codes below.
The aim of the trips is to challenge your skills in driving and recovery. Conditions change and not all situations are the same. It's up to you to know your limits and how far you are prepared to test those limits.

Trip organisers are required to state trip rating and minimum vehicle requirements in the first post of a new trip thread.

Copy and paste the code below into your post

Code: Select all
[b]Trip Destination:[/b]

[b]Trip Rating:[/b]

[b]Vehicle Minimum Requirements:[/b]

[b]Meeting Time & Location:[/b]

ALL AUSSIE 4X4 TRIP CLASSIFICATION CODES

These codes are designed to give drivers a guide. The trip designation can change from the time of classification to the actual trip. Some trips can change easily in different weather conditions – easy trips can become difficult and the opposite can also be the case. All care has been taken to ensure these classifications are reasonably accurate but drivers should still be aware of the potential changes and be sure of themselves and their vehicles before attempting any trip.

All trips are to be graded in their level of difficulty as follows:

* A – EXTREME

Extremely difficult requiring high ground clearance, traction aids and recovery equipment, strong chance of vehicle damage if inexperienced. Participants will be required to have experience at travelling over difficult terrain. The trip leader will have the right to reject a request from someone who is considered inexperienced.

* B – HARD

Moderate to difficult, chance of difficult terrain mixed with an amount of winching and or towing will almost certainly be required. Under extreme weather conditions, this trip could develop into a class A trip.

* C – MEDIUM

Moderate trip. Various sections of the trip will require cautious driving in order to negotiate, but in most circumstances, winching should not be necessary.

* D - EASY

Easy trip. It is unlikely that any winching or towing will be required.

* E – SOCIAL

Social trip. A social trip is considered to be very easy with little or no four wheel driving involved.
