Wow pretty trail.. that looks like a fun recovery, are there any big trees nearby on the uphill side? Hopefully the extraction gets well documented, I'd like to see it.

Is there an official Forest Service policy regarding recovery of a vehicle like that? I expect that they wouldn't support a private effort when there is a risk of an oil spill in a creek. The effort to recover the ATV on Argentine pass a few years ago was sort of like this but there the vehicle was clearly abandoned an posed less risk to those who volunteered to try to remove it.

nothing on the uphill side thats why i thought you would have to flip it over by attaching to the front bumper winching from the uphill side and then at the same time connecting from the downhill side and lowering it down on its wheels (by winching or driving) then pulling it out with the trees/snatch block on the uphill side

That was after that trip a couple of days after to be exact.

BTW was that your manual we used to replace your gears? If so can I use it to fix mine? If that is what is wrong with it.

Snow has really melted since we were up there last. He must have tried to drive up there and slid to the left and back, sliding into the creek with some speed to flip over. We walked up that section, I could not get that far 3-4 weeks ago. Would be fun to go up there again but don't think I can, time wise that is.

OK Less talkie-talkie, more action.

What do we need to do to get approval to recover this j$$p if any? Can we set a date to execute the recovery after the go ahead is given?

I would love to lend a hand on this project.

Roll it down hill into the trees, then recover it backwards out of the creek with the big trees from behind.
How was the steering? Did it look OK?

I do hope the FS fines the guy. This is what gives Offroading a bad name.

Hopefully the person is OK and learns a lesson.

I'd be down for a recovery. And yeah, that guy needs to be fined big time
