It has been a busy month for off road accidents.
Due to driver error a Jeep rolled end over end down this hill following the erosion ditch on the right and ended up to the right of the lone Palo Verde tree in the lower right of the photo. Adding to his error his buddies winched the Jeep back up the hill rather than wiching it along the base of the hill to get it out. He had stopped to check on the Jeep behind him and failed to set the E brake, jumping back to try and save it and unbelted resulted in a wild ride but no injuries needing treatment.



Then there was mine. But it was just scheduled emergency trainig practice.


Then there were these two:

That hill in the first pic is steeper than it appears in the photo. I've seen a nice lifted Suburban, on its roof and wedged against that Palo Verde tree in the center of the hill. I wouldn't even try that one on my ATC that day! It's rough and covered with loose stuff.

What scared me most was that the Burb looked just like the one I owned at the time, which I had just left in the Rolls parking area an hour or so before! Eek!

Saturday I tried the slow approch to it 1/2 throttle in first got half way up
and had to back down. The second time I went faster and made it. A Surburban came down it after Joe went down it. It slid in a few places but he made it. It was pretty tricked out and he had been doing this for a long time. It is slick, loose, rough and steep a dangerous hill for a novice.

Hey this might be a dumb question? But aren't the wheels supposed to be pointing down?

I really hope no one got hurt though. Looks like it was a bit ruff

You know what they say though. If you rolled it you must have been having fun before it happened. The best part is when you have pictures you can look back and remember all the stupid things you have done in life.
