Great practical advice for those who aren't used to traveling on those kinds of roads. Exercising due caution will prevent turning a adventure from interesting to bad. "Scouting" large puddles before driving into them as well as having spare tire are also good ideas. I recall being out in the field with several coworkers where the man driving just barreled into a large puddle, got stuck and then spun and spun the tires resulting in a flat tire (not wanting to listen to a mere woman who suggested that wasn't a good idea. We then found out we had not spare tire (and changing it would have been challenging or impossible anyway). Had to walk over a mile and a half back to a main road and up a hill before we could get a signal and call for tow and tire repair service.
