I don’t know what they’re trying to do with that line, but they’re doing it wrong.

You are correct Bob was on the trip and the driver was trying not to drop the driver side into a washout and went to far passenger causing the roll. They did get it back on rubber and drove to town refueled stayed the night and made it back to the group the next day. I do have a video of the recovery but FB will not let me save to upload.

Maybe they want to pull it end over end. I asked my wife and she didn't know about this. Does anyone know which section of the park this happened in?
Glad to hear they got it upright and were able to drive it though.

Looks like Flint trail switchbacks to me.

I kinda doubt that. Bob has been teaching recovery classes for many years, and seems to have been successful here too. I'll reach out to him to see if he's willing to explain how he did this.

So you have a video of the recovery uploaded on Facebook?
If so --- can you share the Facebook page link to that video?

(It's usually possible to view Facebook videos (and pages) without actually being logged into Facebook. *Unless of course you have the privacy settings for that particular video set to prevent this.)

After several weeks of the group talking about this rollover/recovery, there's gotta be several hundred of us following this thread and dying to see how it actually got resolved/solved.

:b5:

I reached out to Bob, and here's his reply: "Hello Jeff...
Thanks for reaching out; VERY good to hear from you. Yes, that particular recovery was very difficult - mostly from the perspective of NOT wanting to do any damage to the fiberglass popup top on the van. Plus, the trail was VERY narrow, rough, and steep in grade."
I expect he might join us here and provide some additional information about this when he has a chance.

Note to self: take the Flint Trail off my to do list.
