      Forest pointed out during the recovery that now I too get to be a member of the roll over posse. I got a little tippy when my front end walked sideways on a hill climb and this is where I stopped. I have rolled on my passenger side before this time too.

      No real damage sustained from the roll over except I cracked the windshield in a different spot. I replaced it and added some extra cage protection for it now.

      It finally happened

      After years of wheeling with Phil (Albino 94LTD) it finally happened. I will let Phil tell the story, but here are the pics.

      The usual line is right side tires in the ditch as long as your tires are wide enough to keep the body off the side. Mine aren't really that wide so I tried to straddle the ditch.

      Left side slid down into the ditch. I should have stopped right then and waited for spotters (Kevin) but I tried backing down and the sounds of scraping sheet metal made me stop.

      Then I tried forward, hard driver, thinking I could get the left front to climb out of the ditch and it would drop so I could straddle the ditch again. WRONG!

      It climbed up and flopped over backwards.

      Good thing the dog is crated up when we wheel. The kid looked back at her and she was laying on the side of her crate.

      Rob and Kevin came up to get my kid out and the first thing out of the window was a damn Nintendo 3-DS:rolleyes:

      No one hurt, not even a slight bruise, except ego.:(

      That's a nasty looking trail right there. Looks like it got washed out on the pass side pretty well. That situation definitely makes my decision to go full width well worth it.

      Glad everybody came out unscathed. Nintendo? Really? lol

      Oh yeah, first thing out of the passenger side of the truck. The first and second thing were the same thing out of the drivers side, the ice scraper. After making sur Phil was okay, I handed him the ice scraper that fell out, he proceeded to throw it into the back seat, unfortunately, the window back there was down also so I had to pick it up again and hand it to him AGAIN.

      That was a 'roll-over rookie' mistake and made me realize I really was perpendicular to the ground.

      The next strange thing was Kevin's father-in law walking past me, parallel to the hood. I was trying to find my camera to get inside pictures but it wasn't until we were down the hill on flatter ground that I discovered I was sitting on it. :wtf:

      Idunno, that was more of a "flop" then a "roll". For a rollover we need roof scratches, and all 4 tires in the air.

      Sorry Phil, keep trying--:p::D

      President, thank you.


      Yep, as soon as we got him back on his wheels, cleared the oil out of his cylinders and let him pee, I shook the mans hand and welcomed him to the club.

      We was up as Evans creek today hoping for some snow fun. But not much snow up there so we was playing around down by the rock pit.
      The rock was slick and not giving much for traction today, If you was going to own the it, It was going to require so skinny pedal.
      Ben got a cut on the nose and the exo did it job.
      After resetting the inertia switch the explorer started up a trail repair on the sidewall of the tire and drove back down to the trailers.

      It seems that it held up to the roll really good. Any pictures of how the ex-o did?

      It was only 4.

      I am pretty sure he's got it.

      After the second roll, we were all starting to wonder if it was going to end. He never picked up speed, just kept slowly rolling over at the same rate.
