glad to hear his family is mostly okay, I'm sure it was a scary experience.

If I ever want to be a truck driver I hope someone kicks me in the balls! Just did a " turn and burn" McCall to Reno 2 hrs sleep and back to McCall, holy shit I am tired. Anyway, I got my van home, so nice just to know the old girl is home. Still not sure on my direction the more I look the less bad it looks, well kinda. All the bells and whistles work, frame straight, rolls nice, no damage to anything underneath. The back doors and rear bumper are almost perfect. The front Alumines bumper totally did its job, the grill and lights are good, inside good. I won't be back till August 8th so I have some time to think, I will be asking a lot of questions in the near future. As Shenrie said in his post the van just pushed the soft dirt off the edge of the road. We were stopped, did the ole slo mo roll thankfully we got stopped after 1 1/2. I will post some pics tomorrow or the next day, for now it's rest time so I can water ski early tomorrow morning. Thank you all for the kind words, really! Cheers kt

Sounds like you're taking it in stride Telehead. Enjoy what you can salvage of your trip.
This too shall pass.

Best of luck with it all telehead, hopefully a few glassy wakeless cuts will cure some of those ills.

Glad to hear that there were no serious injuries.

A bit over a year ago, I watched a full-sized diesel pickup roll, after dropping the front wheel off a trail. It's scary how little it takes for things to go very wrong. Especially with these heavy vehicles.

The sheet metal can't be that hard to come by, the biggest bit of labor is likely pulling the interior and putting it back in, but that part could be a reasonable DIY. Good luck getting it back on the road if you choose to go that route!

She finally made it home. Looks pretty bad, but kinda good! The only oil leak I can find is oil coming out of the exhaust where the header h to the tubing. Must be oil in the cylinders from being on the side for 2 hrs. Also looks like tranny fluid was running out of the dipstick? I wonder if a complete body swap would be the way to go? Cheers,kt
