Where did that happen on the trail Stve. And I am glad that you and your truck are both OK
Ken, I think you have explained the situation perfectly! I was "this crose", in my best Maxwell Smart voice, from cleaning the obstacle. As it was, it was a matter of trying to finesse something that a little heavier throttle might have made easier. It was on the ledges section right above the slabs above Buck Island. I had already picked a low line and Uncle Ben wanted me to take a higher line after he had a chance to survey the situation. Trying to get up to the higher line put me in the middle of no man's land and I was about six inches short of getting through it all cleanly. Let the jokes begin! The pic is BVB's son AJ's impression of it all - a little tilt added for effect. Result was limited to a dent at roof line and a slightly more awake driver. Pissed Uncle Ben off that a bag fell out the passenger side window.
