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.
Jeep flip over 8 times / after math slide show
July 16th 2011 / Trail Beast slid off a snow drift and rolled down a hill 8
times, nearly 200'.
This clip shows the retrieval and damage of both the jeep and driver.
I'm very lucky the way things worked out, except the emergency bill.
Thanks to everyone involved in getting me off the mountain safely, and
those involved in getting my jeep and stuff retrieved. I only ended up
missing a Left snow boot.
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

Girl Rolls Jeep
She seams too panicked to continue. I think a few of us have been there at
one time or another. Got to give her credit. Not many women want to even
drive over a curb (on purpose, lol). Farmington, NM
Jeep Roll Over
Read this before commenting!!! This was entirely on purpose, person riding
with me had never been in a rollover, asked if she wanted to, she said
ok.... So we flipped the jeep! Rolled it over and kept wheeling! This jeep
is built to take a beating and keep on going!

complain about me putting music over our jeep videos, this one is for you.
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
Snowtrek.org - Snow Wheeling in the North Cascades of Washington State
http://www.snowtrek.org - an epic start to the 2011- 2012 snow wheeling
season. Perfect November day in the North Cascade Mountains of Washington
State. We spent the day in some borderline surgar snow. Progress was very
slow and difficult at times, but we eventually made the summit.
