You have got to be kidding I know we have a wide network of Cruiser/Toyota friends but this is freaky

I can't believe it but then again I am not surprised. Of all the rigs of all the mountains..............we now know who the owner is...........sort of. So spill already, we want to know the whole story and nothing but

I don't remember the details, but I think they got off course at some point this fall. They were going to go back up and get it (like the following weekend) but it snowed, so they had to leave it till spring.

Bummer, that is an expensive turn I guess he did not update his GPS..........recalculating

So after this happened he did not call the "Rising Sun Rescue center" I would think we would have had enough rigs up there to get him out.

When spring comes and the weather and snow allow does he "have" to use a state or licensed tow/recovery company or can he go up there with some friends and maybe Forest service supervision and retrieve it? I would try to get it ASAP when spring hits to try and safe some of the electronics but I bet it will be trashed inside his truck. Hope his insurance understood the situation since they may have to total it most likely.

Keep us posted, I would be willing to help when the time comes.

I got a little more of the story: I guess this happened back in October. My coworker wasn't sure if something broke, or he slid off the road, or what, but one way or another he got it to a point where he couldn't get out. He was able to make a call to another neighbor to come pick him up, he reported it to the Forest Service etc. He tried contacting a towing company I understand, but was told that it was too late to retrieve it and he would have to wait until spring. As much as I'd like to hope that it will come out okay, you're right it'll probably be totalled, just considering the amount of snow/moisture inside it now.

I bet a group of RS folks could have retrieved it

it's good to know that he's all right though. People do freaky things in the mountains and I wondered if he capped himself or something up there, so while the rig may be toast, it's good to know he's all right.

Radar,

You should post up a quick message on the 14ers site to put those guys at ease

Bummer about the guy's 80...I'm with others betting that this could have been saved last year before the snow got too bad. Only hope now would be to hike up there, clean as much of the snow out as possible so it doesn't ruin the inside when it starts melting, and hope for the best come spring. Makes me wonder if one of the PS windows got blown out or if just the wind really was able to blow the snow past the weather stripping that much to fill the truck up.
