OH stuck in an elevator! Sweet.
Where was this at?
half hour is pretty damn good for the elevator maint personnel to respond IMO!

You got lucky!
Must have somebody on site or in the area at least.

How did they get you out? Lower the car to the bottom terminal and open the doors or get you guys through the escape hatch (more rare)

Typically it is somethng simple when a car stops in the hoistway, its for your own safety. They elevator people have to cut power to the machine or pump and check all teh safeties, then they can put it on bypas mode and lower you at a very slow speed to the bottom stop.

Any word on what the problem was? Usually it is a door interlock switch or something, think of it as your truck stopping itself if a door is opened or if the door adjar switch says a door is open.



I hope you remembered not to try and pry the doors open or try to escape yourselves, cz thats when people get killed. Imagine, hey I got the doors open and we can climb out to this floor, then half was across the "threshhold" the elevator move = slice.

That would be great if you could photograph the run Brian. We would definately like to see you even if you can't bring the Ex. :thumbsup:

Tell the old man not to feel bad. I just went to PM one of the moderators and instead I posted directly into a thread! DOH!! :eek: A senior moment and I still have many years to go before I'm offically a senior :confused:

I signed up (running the beginner trails) and I am partly going because I've got a Photo Essay project for a class and I'll be able to learn more about offroading this way.

Are there times during the runs where groups watch other groups at certain obstacles?

Is there an approximate time vehicles will get going towards the trails on Saturday? I'll be arriving Saturday and don't won't to slow anyone down.

Thanks, Chris.

Actually, Jamie after learning what I did from your other thread, I was kinda freeked when they got us out :eek: The elevator went up about 4 feet and then had a jarring stop. When they got us out they pryed the doors from the outside, outer then, inner. We were half across the treshhold :eek: They put a little ladder and siad come down. The Elevator guy came up and put his key in to turn it off. *Flashback in my mind to your post and being split in half *:eek: So I was the first out, I said screw that I'm not taken my time walking down a ladder through the open doors, I grabbed the outer top of the door way and swung out like a monkey on a vine. :monkey: The rest of them came down the ladder. They said it was ok the power was off :rolleyes: They had the elavator back working a few minutes later :confused:

9am is when we leave camp for the trails.

If we head out towards the ditches you guys could watch or follow. The ditches provide a lot of action in the way of suspension articulation and very narrow passages that you need to wind your way through. There is stuff there for the moderate/stock guys too, you just have to be careful of body damage.

And a note to those with ATVs... This group has a bit of an aversion towards ATVs given our past experiences with them at Truck Haven. Please do not ride them around camp. If your going to ride take them out on the trails...

Thanks.
