This 4runner wasn't in our group. He flopped it on the trail that takes you up CJ Hill the back way. We were at the water fall when some guy flags me down, yelling that his buddies 4runner rolled. We got over there ASAP. The truck was really wedged in. I had to get behind and parallel, while Stic-o came in 90degs to us and we used the front of his truck as a pivot point for the winch cable. We used my winch to pull him over on to his wheels, then Tdavis strapped him backwards so he could get over a boulder. No engine damage, no oil in the cylinders... etc. Everyone was ok.

Night run!!! Where there's smoke there's not always FIRE!!!

You never saw people run so fast including myself... We had 4 fire extinguishers there in seconds... Turned out it was just oil in the cylinders from laying on the side, for so long, but it seemed to smell like it was electrical at first and it, also was filling up the cab of the truck making it difficult to even figure out where it was coming from at first.

I got these out of order. Maniak actually went first. Killed his right rear brake light, and now the rear quarter of his Ex, looks like it's been to the same place as mine has ;)

See what looks like a wet hole on the right side close to the hill? That's a tire sucking hole. Not dug by tires, but dug by mother nature. It looked like the beginnings of another truck haven cave.

look like all had a good time and great job helping out that toyota, always nice to help out other people on the trail and glad to hear no one was hurt with that one
 












Home sweet home...

Char and I had a fantastic weekend, like a family reunion:D

Looking forward to getting back out there in January:bounce:
 






Once upon a time, these photo threads would actually spawn discussion from people from all over the country/world:dunno:

Guess we're not exciting enough anymore :(
 






I was waiting for more pictures-:D

One day, I will make it back there. It looks like you had a good time. Did Steve flop all the way or just get real tippy?

That was his imitation of a Jurassic tripod ;) He didn't do any damage other than burning a bunch of oil.
