Somone (w/limited 4x4 experience) in a 392 XR having a little too much fun on SoCal Cleghorn trail this weekend. I'm told no one was hurt and they were just waiting on the tow truck for recovery. All secondhand information, but a cautionary tale in any case.

I wonder if it climbed the LH wall and then flipped?

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I have a few bruises on my body, but mainly just a bruised ego and slap to my pride.

There were definitely some rookie mistakes made. The driver in front of me damaged his fender and I watched him do it, because of that, I decided to ride higher in order to avoid my fender being damaged… great choice right?

I panicked once I got too off camber, kept the tires turned toward the wall and touched the gas. In hindsight the mistakes were obvious, but so goes the saying of such things being 20/20 after the fact.

You can laugh, say how stupid my decision making process was or whatever else comes to mind. Hell, it’s probably all true, but each failure to me is another notch in my belt towards wisdom and learning new things.

I’ll be back out soon!
