Another piece of advise for the newbies. Decide BEFORE you head out how much damage you're willing to inflict on your rig, and select trails accordingly. Some of us don't care about body damage - it's only sheetmetal, and chicks dig scars. Others, for whatever reason, think that trucks are suposed to be pretty.
From my experience with body damage, I'll say this. It only hurts the first time.
