I was going to ask how it did a flop too, but after wheeling with Danimal I've just learned to accept that these things happen

Looks like a lot of damage on that night run for sure!

The drive up was the most challanging part of the weekend. I75 was cleared & reopened by the time I got up that far. No real trail carnage Sat other than the big UROC j@@p snapped an axle shaft at the bottom of the culvert climb.

The Jeep on it's side got off trail slightly and then the snow took over and just pulled it in...at that point there was enough of a drop off that it flopped.

We got it righted and everyone else drove through that area with no problems.

I'm thinking that a CB should be a REQUIREMENT for these kind of events. Communication is crucial to the safety for all involved.

Yes, trees. We were thinking that the silver one might have broken it's steering before it went into the trees. It was at least 100 yards further down the trail from where the other jeeps went off of the trail and when it went into the trees and it was still moving pretty fast before the trees stopped it.

The trail was slippery and locking up your brakes was/is bad. Here's some video of the others coming down the same hill. Some made it look easy and some had the pucker factor going.

Funny thing, we had all just gone down this same hill about 20 minutes before as we had just done a loop.

Same thing happened to the same rig on the 2010 run....he got off track, slid off the trail, and was hanging halfway off a 6+ft dropoff that would've landed him on the roof. I think he said his brother was driving I've got pics on my home computer
