Most of us drive or ride in a vehicle on a daily basis. In SureFire Field Notes 70, Expedition Portal and Overland Journal co-founder and publisher Scott Brady offers his expertise on how to assess and improve your driving skills in any environment from Main Street U.S.A. to the more remote regions on Earth.
Brady should know. He has circumnavigated the globe three times and he was the expedition leader for Expedition 7, in which the same Toyota Land Cruiser was driven on all seven continents.
Brady covers a variety of topics in SureFire Field Notes 70, framing the discussion by inviting the viewer to assess other drivers while riding as a passenger. Are they distracted? What’s their speed in relationship to sight distance? What does their body position suggest? Are they tense? Are they hyper-focused? Are they communicative? Along the way, Brady also shares his thoughts on various techniques such as early versus late apex decision-making and proper technique when you have to back up.
The ultimate takeaway is that if we can properly and objectively assess other drivers, we should also be able to then apply that knowledge toward improving our own driving skills. Click on the video above and check out SureFire Field Notes 70 for yourself.
