Training the Individual Explorer:

Douglas and Stephanie Hackney participated in two customized training sessions, which included expedition medical training and basic survival awareness. Initial training session covered basic driving scenarios and proof of concept validation of the base Fuso/Camper configuration. Testing resulted in a series of recommended engineering revisions.

First, thank you very much for a very professional and personable experience. It was amazing what we were able to learn in 48 short hours. Doug"

The second customized training session included advanced driving and recovery scenarios, crossed-axle obstacles and cambered terrain testing. The weather allowed for several deep water crossing tests and mud driving scenarios.

"...Thanks so much for your efforts. You are a consummate pro
and are excellent at reading the needs, and meeting those needs, in your

The two days was exactly what we needed, as well as exactly what we hoped to accomplish, which were two different things. Be well, Doug"

Doug and Stephanie left shortly after the training for a round-the-world expedition, and are currently in South America.


Training the Solo Explorer:

Adriana was preparing for a multi-year expedition into Mexico, Central America and on to South America in her FZJ80 Toyota Land Cruiser. We conducted a series of trip and vehicle preparation consulting sessions and ended with a multi-day driving and recovery training session.

"Scott and Chris,

Many thanks to you for all the help and support you've given me.
Looking back I think the most important thing I've learned is that I
am prepared. I've had every intention on going but now I have the
confidence of knowing that someone as experienced as yourself, a
professional driver, traveler and trainer thinks I'm a good driver
and am prepared to do an expedition such as this. That really means a
lot to me personally. Now when/if people make discouraging comments I
know I'm not just crazy or stubborn, I really can do this.

The important technical skill I learned was working with the winch.
The driving was fun and I enjoyed it and I feel much more confident
about my ability to handle those types of roads. It was also nice to
work with the jacks. I also appreciate the checklist we created. I've
given Rocky my notes on all the issues we discovered and I'll put together a spreadsheet type checklist I can laminate..."
