Back in Pre-History doing cross country traverses in Landcruiser traybacks with no power steering, the steering wheel could spin very very fast if mounting a large unseen boulder. Broken thumbs very likely if holding the steering wheel incorrectly.

I was taught 10-2, pull (not push), and never cross your arms/hands (i.e., keep your hands between 12 and 5/7). Starting at 10 & 2 means that for most curves your hands are between 9 & 11 / 1 & 3.
