Spotters. Actually, not really the
spotters specifically. Were you ever in a tight spot on a trail and
while you're trying to listen to you spotter, there are two or three
more people trying to spot you to? Yea, don't be those people. One
spotter at a time, if you feel the spotter isn't seeing what you're
seeing, let him/her know. There is no need to try to spot and confuse
the person driving, it's annoying as shit. Imagine looking for parking
and you have three passengers all pointing out different parking spot
yelling over each other...yeah it's like that.
Drivers, listen to your fuckin' spotter. He sees what you don't.
here's an example. I was just looking at the rig behind me though
The head-pokers/quarter drivers. The guys who
stick their head out the window and stare at their front drivers side
tire as they are navigating an obstacle. Put your damn head back in the
window, first of all, you're only looking at 1 of 4 tires, so that whole
method is a bust. Second, you can't see whats in front of you; and if
you can, it's just whatever is on your left. What's even worse? When
someone is spotting you and you stick your head out the window and don't
listen to a word the spotter says because according to your
quarter-field of vision you're fine. I'm not saying you cant stick your head out the window to see whats going on, just dont do it and think you can be your own spotter because you can see your drivers side tire.
