1980. Thought the dirt road over Baxter Pass sounded like a good idea. Roughly Fruita to Rangely over the Book Cliffs. Didn't count on the rain. Rig was a stock 1980 HiLux long bed. Tires were 29 inch Michelin LTX. A great all season road tire. Not so in that pure clay mud indigenous to Western Colorado. Talk about slip-slidin away...maybe Paul Simon tried this in a previous life. Darn near drove off a cliff several times before we were able to retreat to Fruita. Guess I learned my tire lesson.
But is there more to recovery gear than Crash's 62?
