Jeep flip 8 times off FR #7030 in West Cascades, Washington
Best Jeep roll over coverage I've seen on Youtube!
(2) end over end, (6) sideway rolls. Trail Beast crosses an icy drift, and rolls over a cliff 8 times 200'. Forest Service rd. #7030 SE of Greenwater, Washington Hwy 410. Driver and Jeep were extracted with minor injuries. July 16, 2011 Three Jeepers go looking for summer snow 4 wheeling at 5400'. This shows how dangerous the north side of a snow drift can be. Stay tuned for the aftermath video, and return to the trails.
Special Thanks to Rich Rudman and Carl Jantz for the footage and retrieval.
End of the Road For This Weekend (part 1)
It was a bright and windy April day in the Cascade Mountain with 20 inches
of new snow on top of 18 inches the previous week. This time we had more
men and better materials to cross the avalanche chute. The avalanche danger
was minimal so we braved the drifts to see how much further we could drive
this weekend than the previous weekend. It took two hours to go 1/4 mile.
This is part one. Part 2 is at

JEEP Roll Over on Dinero - 4x4 Offroad dangers
This is not my video - just posting it for wary Jeepers out there to remind
the dangers of our pastime...here's the write up of the folks in the Jeep
Bill and Irene were checked out at the hospital and back in camp by that
afternoon. They were scratched, bruised and quite sore, but were ok for the
Comments from Irene:
We decided to stay until Tuesday, so we could get more rest before the trek
home... It's almost scarier watching the video, than to be in the jeep at
the time! While it was happening, it seemed to go on and on, rolling over
and over. I kept wondering, "When is it going to STOP? And what's going
to happen when it finally does stop? (I had visions of the jeep blowing
up, for example. Guess I have seen too many movies!)
I remember saying at first, "Oh, God, not again!" (We were in a bad
accident 1.5 years ago.) Our roll cage has really done wonders in saving
our lives! Still, it was a miracle that we all survived this one! This
accident was much worse. Lovey (the dog) knows how to place herself
according to the terrain, but nothing could prepare her for the constant
rolling over. When we are on steep uphill or downhill trails, she gets on
the floor of the jeep, and braces her body parallel to our front seats. If
we are on a paved road she gets up on the seat and looks out the window.
She is the best jeeping dog! She loves to go jeeping. I wonder if she
will still be as happy to go on more trails after this accident. (Lovey
was not with us the day of our first accident.)
All the people there were so wonderful to us. We couldn't have asked for
better friends - from the gals who provided shade for me, gave me water,
ice for my head, and helped cheer me up, to the guys who helped getting our
jeep back in our trailer. You were all absolutely terrific! Dan and
Jennifer were so awesome! They drove us to the hospital, brought water, a
sandwich, and a banana. We were starving, since we had had only a light
breakfast at 6:30 before we went on the trail. They kept checking up on us
throughout our stay in the Emergency Room, and took us to Rite Aid so I
could get my prescriptions filled before returning to camp. They spent
hours of their special vacation time with us. We will never forget their
We couldn't get our dog, Lovey to a vet, since our jeep was so damaged. We
obviously couldn't take her in the motorhome, since Bill was unable to
drive. But R.J. and Travis took her all the way to the Animal Emergency
Clinic in Victorville. I said I would go along, but R.J. insisted that I
stay with Bill and take care of him. Lovey had to spend the night there,
so she could be under observation. She required some stitches, a drainage
bag, and antibiotics. Sunday A.M., R.J. and Travis again drove to
Victorville to pick Lovey up. Again, I wanted to go along to pay for her
fees, but again, R.J. insisted that I stay with Bill and rest, and that he
would take care of everything. And he did! How many people would do this
I have taken her on walks every day since the accident, and I can see her
jeep snow wheeling /camping 2011 weekend on the strap
Our weekend camping trip in the snow. Over 5 feet of new snow in three
days. 1946 cj2a willys, 1953 cj3b willys, 1972 cj5. For all of you who
complain about me putting music over our jeep videos, this one is for you.
Jeeping in the snow
The first test off-road for both Jeeps prior to shipping to Egypt Easter
2011. The paint was only just dry on the Willys and it still lacked seats
and the correct tyres, but it was a lot of fun, if rather cold -
particularly on the 50 mile run back home that evening!

modified jeep cherokee snorkels very deep water and floats Jake's Place
Check out my other jeep videos and rate thumbs up if you like to 4x4.
My 87 jeep cherokee. I'm playing around in my pond. It is at least 7ft
at the deep end. When you get in too deep, the whole jeep floats. Good
times. Private property. No pollution. If there was, an oil sheen would
form on my pond, and I never got one.
Steam from leaky muffler, lets water into Exhaust, then it burns off

the track bar broke while we were rounding the corner. since the front axle
was then free to move side to side, we basically lost steering. hitting the
bank, flipping off the rock, and landing on the "roof"
hit that rock just before that small tree/shrub and it kicked us out away
from the wall at about 30ish mph... we landed perfectly on the roll cage,
perfectly flat, upside down...
End of the Road For This Weekend (part 2)
This is the end of our trip for the weekend. It took two hours to go 1/4
mile and it was 3/4 mile to the top of the ridge on even tougher side
hills. SuperJeep broke a rear trailing arm just after I started rolling the
camera on the first of the front view (1:51). It took about an hour to
patch it well enough to cross back over the tough part past the little
