So in pic 1 it is stuck, and pic 4 it is starting to slide? Strange. Seems like someone took those pics while it was happening.

agreed.

I wonder if they realized just how dangerous a recovery and or situation they were in? that much mass with momentum is real scary on scree...

OK, on topic, I'm guessing he had to drive up with one side of his truck on the trail to get there. Doubt that he could've driven straight up the scree field, even with lockers.

Maybe it was the hiker's "support" team? :)

One thing for sure, getting that thing down safely is NOT going to be cheap...Call out the National Guard to practice their high altitude rescue? Other than helicopter, how would you get that sucker out of there...

Ask Nakman how we get someone off the soft scree and then don't mention Tomichi Pass.

that better? I too was a little shocked but I'm way over here in the corner office, so not as big of a deal.. and I seem to keep coming back to this thread for some reaason :o




edit: recovery, if that was actually on a trail we could get that off. Winch front and back, a strap on the B pillar, nothing to it.. drag it back up. that stuff is old hat by now.. :)

Wasn't there a Hummer that did something similar, ended up bogged in the tundra (Tundra in the tundra, that would be weird). Since driving behind them is verboten and you can only backpack out so much, I think they had to hire a helicopter to get it out and at that altitude it's limited to something like a couple of hundred lbs at a time. So 400 trips up and down, that's a whole ton of hours.

So, there has been a thread on 14rs dot com about this. Looks to be where the "news" picked up the pics.

Sounds like the truck is on private property (mining claim) just past where a closed 2 track peters out.

Wow, 10 pages to that thread. Details:

I decided to register as a member so I could respond to this thread. A buddy and I were hiking doing the final run from Cameron to Bross when we saw what looked like a truck coming towards us. As we got closer to each other, it turned out to be a older teenager on a brand new dirt bike with his dad following in his brand new truck. We got to the part where the trail kinda takes a little dip and gets skinner (for about 10 feet) which was where we crossed paths with the oncoming idiots. My buddy and I sat down to grab a drink and watch the entertainment as we were shocked that this guy in the truck was actually attempting this. The dirt biker obviously wasn't too experienced because he could barely work the clutch and didn't have much control over the bike. The dirt bike's rear tire started slipping as he tried to get grip, but his rear end slid off the trail and he dug himself a rut. He shut off the bike and got off and had to lift the rear end out of the rocks to get it back onto stable ground. Meanwhile, the Dad is sitting in the truck with two other small kids watching his son getting stuck. This should have been a good indication that it might be more difficult to get your truck out of a situation like this than it is for a dirt bike. Anyway, the dirt bike kept going up the trail towards Cameron and Dad came trucking right behind. He got to the dip in the trail and had the truck on 2 tires; front right and back left with a nice twist in his frame. He had to back up 2 times and finnally gunned it to get past this point. Right after the dip he was a little out of control given the power his big truck just unleashed on the mountain, and his truck began to tilt towards the right, ie down the mountain. I could see the left side springs extending and then his truck got on the two right wheels with the left wheels just above the ground. I tried to get my camera out fast, but he quickly took action and attempted to correct the situation by driving more uphill, and that's when his back right tire started spinning and the rear end went off the trail. We're sitting about 10 feet away from all this (on the uphill side of course) so we had an awesome viewpoint. At this point we realized that this guy is not going to give up and we really didn't want to be involved in his rescue attempt, so we headed on. We kept looking back and the guy kept trying to get all his tires back on the trail, but all the loose rock wasn't helping and he kept sliding down. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

pretty stupid.

I honestly don't know how anybody could mistake that for an OK place to try and go with a truck.

Someone in that thread suggested that a local 4WD club should help get him out. I volunteered Rising Sun, hope that's ok. ;)

I've been on that part of the trail hiking between Bross and Lincoln, skirting by Cameron. It's not that wide (as you can tell from the pictures). And it doesn't go anywhere to speak of. That guy is a complete idiot. We should go get us a free truck Radar style...

That could be funny if he was losing the truck because he was unemployed and told the bank where it was and to have fun getting it back.

As funny as this is to us, it is this very kind of thing that should anger us. :mad: Or at least it does me. These are the type of actions that generally get associated with us, as 4 wheeling enthusiasts. If removing this vehicle as a club was safely possible, it would be great PR. But ultimately I hope the owner ends up with a massive tow bill and some fines to boot. :rant:

Appears the truck has been removed...Most of it anyway

I was up on the Decalibron today for the 9/11 memorial hike for the fallen firefighters. Looks like the truck has been removed. The only thing remaining are deep tire ruts where the truck was stuck.

Along with the tire ruts, there were scraps of parts from a vehicle laying around nearby - I would assume it was from the stuck truck. I wasn't quite strong enough to carry down what appeared to be an entire bumper........
