Yes indeed! And that's precisely what happened. I was leader that day. The driver was great during and after recovery, the folks on the run were superb in executing a perfect recovery. (For example, just after this photo was taken we assigned one participant to watch and keep the area below the vehicle clear of all people in case it rolled) Discussions were had and will happen again with that driver to make sure that does not happen in the future.

Incidentally, after this recovery we used dead branches to erase all off-trail tire tracks and footprints and smoothed out the sand (no crypto, just sand) so that you could barely tell anything had occurred. Again, the driver and folks on the trail all worked as a team and it was great to watch. Better if it had never happened though!
