Saturday fun.

Took the family and the jeep out to the cabin Saturday for some fun time. *My buddy followed me in his new truck, aka: my old Toyota to get his feet wet behind the wheel of a wheeler. *The trails are pretty cut and dry, I figured he'd do fine. *And he did for a while. *
*

*
*
Then I took him up the hill to the tree house to show him the climb. *Turning around at the top is hairy, the place I came closest to ever rolling the Toyota in the 10+ years I wheeled it. The jeep teetered a bit, but I got it turned around and back down the hill. *Well about a half an hour later, while down at the creek on the trail, my Father yells down that we'd better get up the hill. *
Here's what i saw when I headed up, after they told me he'd rolled it. *The view as I walked up the steep trail.

*
Indeed, he'd rolled it at the same spot I'd teetered on.
*
I sent him back in to set the e brake before I pulled him back on his wheels. *I attached his front bumper to a tree above just in case. *I attached a snatch block to a tree below and ran my winch to it. *

We'll pretend I did it though. *lol

IN the end, no injuries, basically lost a mirror. *It started back up on the first crank, didn't even smoke. *He took it through the lower trails several more times and drove it home.

Pictures are not showing up for me. Sounds like you had a lot of fun and the only injuries were to a jeep.

This should fix it...

Glad everything is okay after that!
