A Dream Given Form
Since the 4WDABC's inception 45 years ago, education has been a key component of what we stand for: safe and responsible wheeling.
For the past few years, we've worked to update the old Driver's Manual and instructed new wheelers as best we could, based on our own experiences, but we always knew we needed to up our game and bring in some professional help.
In the fall of 2018, after a two-year research and vetting process, we engaged the International 4 Wheel Drive Trainers Association to visit us here in Beautiful BC. Together with the Three Amigos (Michael Block, Will Gillette, Dan Griffin) and Izzy Sanchez, Chris Cole and the legendary Bill Burke spent an intensive week with 17 of our members from all over BC, imparting equal measures of instruction in teaching concepts and methods, and off-road driving, recovery, and safety.
Welcome to Wheeling Wisely.
After another year of curriculum planning, course development, and hands-on practice, the Wheeling Wisely program launched our first course, Foundations of Four-Wheeling, in Prince George in September of 2019 to rave reviews, followed by courses in the Fraser Valley in October and November.
In 2020, we expanded our content with Essentials of Off-Road Recovery, and brought both to other parts of BC for weekend programs including both courses.
For 2021, we plan to go to a monthly format with the two courses offered back-to-back - watch the calendar for dates as they're published.
