Thought you might like a picture. Ever seen a RHD BJ-70 on it's side?
No one was hurt, not even Ross.

Oh no!!!

VERY glad to hear everyone is okay.

Poor guy, right as he's trying to sell it no less.

He's trying to sell it? Is it posted up anywhere?

Still curious to know what happened...

And yes, hope everyone is having a splendid time nonetheless!

Default Few more pics

I had to leave a bit early, but we completed Black Bear on Saturday with a few incidents (tipped BJ-70, Doug Tebbe had a broken CVJ, James Cruiser 60 had 4WD problems and had to be towed up the steps and around a hair-pin).
Sunday dawned rainey but we drove back to Telluride, spent an hour in town then took on Imogene. Rain and fog kept many of the normal ATV/Bikers off the run but we still encountered some jeep groups. The day went well and we had no break-downs.
Here are a few pics.

The run was lead by Bruce Miller and Jethro was tail gunner. Safety and communication was priority one. Thanks to good leadership (Bruce and Jethro) and excellent help from all involved, it was a great weekend! Terry

Super fun day on Sunday, rode the gondola up the mountain, then wheeled in the rain. I was blown away at how beautiful Imogene pass was, will definitely be back. Thanks again everyone for the awesome time and great company..

Even with the mishaps, this was by far a great trip!! We enjoyed ourselves and only wished we could have stayed longer.

Thanks for the pictures!!
