For those of you who have questions about how to perform safe and effective recoveries off-road these videos should give you a good start.

If you do not have a line dampener, use a blanket or jacket.

Thank you! I've been wondering about this lately. Saved me the effort of trying to search for something and not be 100% sure it was something I should reference. Also makes sniffing out good and bogus information easier.

There are some good videos on advanced winch recovery as well.  Things like using a snatch block to make angled recoveries, or increase pull power.  Or using multiple vehicles to winch another vehicle out of a tough spot.  But I felt that was outside the scope of beginner advice.
