Do’s and Don’t of OFF-Roading

Get ready to hit the trails this summer with these few helpful tips that will keep you safe, happy, and hydrated!


Plan out your day! Scout your trails, figure out where you want to go, be sure to have a hefty GPS plan and a will to go off that plan if you find a spot that’s particularly alluring. A good plan will keep you on track even when you’re off road.


Never hit the trails unprepared. This means don’t go off road until at least a few of your closest loved ones know where you’re going. This is a safety measure. And while your vehicle from M & L Lexington is as safe as they come, you still need to make sure that someone knows where you are in case something goes wrong. It’s a simple safety measure for anyone who travels a little bit out of the way of civilization.

Take plenty of water! When you’re out there on those trails in your Wrangler, time can really get away from you. When you’re having fun, you might not be thinking about the time or staying hydrated, but when it’s summer and the sun is blaring down at you, it’s a good thing to take a canteen or cooler full of fresh cold ice water so that you feel your best while you’re out there.


Drive into standing water. So many off-roaders make the mistake of thinking a “puddle” is a “puddle” when in reality you’re going to lose your vehicle if you go through it. It’s very important to gauge anything that doesn’t look quite safe to you, and this includes bodies of standing water. If you need to, get out to gauge how deep the water is before you drive through that seemingly harmless body of standing water!
