Our group had the scariest experience ever in all our years.....

We left Crawfords cry on Sat night and were headed to Whitetail, just cruising the trail, when one of the buggys in our pack just dissappeared off the side of the mountain. He didn't see a narrow section of trail with a wash out. Dropped his right front off the ledge which spun him facing down, did 2 endo's, hit a tree, then twisted around between two trees and did a few more endo's to the bottom of the ravine where he landed on all fours. Buggy still ran and drove, but he did have a gash on his head from hitting the cage. Only way out was to continue down hill and make a new trail. Had to winch down backwards the whole way because of steep rock ledges until he finally made it out but after all of that there was surprisingly little damage to buggy or people. Damn that could have been so much worse in a number of ways! He was very, Very lucky after all that!

No pics. It was dark and not important at the time.

Glad he was ok. Sounds horrible

Holy hell. Glad everyone is ok and I assume was wearing harnesses. That could have been horrible.

I feel the tires perform best at what can best be described as the jiggle equivalent to that of a middle aged mother of two's ass. Just right.  Cougar

He's ok for the most part and didn't appear to even have a concussion. He (driver) was wearing his harness but it wasn't cinched down. His dad was passenger and he was cinched down tight the whole time. No helmets. He wanted to get back on the horse Sunday morning but still had a headache and the gash was still bleeding, so he decided to call it and head home with plans to visit urgent care and have it checked out.

Plus side is, looks like a new class 5 trail will soon exist if an exit can be found. We'll check it out soon and see whats up.

Definitely. More wheeling less wrenching.
