15.4. Useful winter councils
If you have established a radiator heater, do not forget about it when забуксовали, on a court yard sudden thaw (recently it happens often enough) or in general has come spring – differently it is possible to overheat the engine even at the serviceable electrofan of system of cooling.
Necessarily carry with itself a shovel. For struggle against deep snow (if it can meet on your way) is better the special "snow-removing" or sovok shovel approaches. For firmer, packed or thawed snow and digging out забуксовавшего in a car track the usual bayonet shovel with the shank truncated for compactness approaches. On trips on wood roads it is desirable to have also топорик to cut boughs and to enclose under wheels, and sometimes to dissolve a fire.
If regularly it is necessary to overcome slippery liftings, it is useful to carry in a luggage carrier a package (a small bag) with a coarse sand, a brick crumb or something similar. Frequently happens to throw enough under each wheel on steam of shovels of this mix to move a little and overcome the abrupt iced over lifting or not to slip from a way, having damaged thus a body.
