Wow that was amazing
I'm very glad that they weren't hurt !
Tommy is a wheeling god. He did a great job with his quick thinking to keep that thing from flipping. I'm glad no one was hurt.
Wow Tommy! That was the Sh*t!!
How long after before you were able to change your shorts??, (LOL)!
"CLEAN-UP, DRIVER'S SEAT"!!
Glad it ended so well! Awesome recovery.
What caused the rapid descent - engine stall? Unanticipated neutral gear selection? The rig just decided "I'm outta here"?
Oh yeah, glad you made it through physically unscathed!
Tommy found that his throttle return spring had come loose.
pretty sure i would still be puckered up after that. Glad everyone was safe and had a good time.
PS - i hate having to work.
Tommy, I am glad that you and your vehicle survived.
Wow. So glad you saved that. You quick thinking really saved your hide. I never inspect that spring. Maybe I will now.
Well, that was first big hill of the day. And probably the first big hill in about 8 years. Right before my front tires popped up in the air, my throttle stuck and it made me feel like my scout was going to flip over backward. If I had of just stayed calm I would have realized that my tires were already back on the ground and I could have made it over the top. However, I had slapped the truck in reverse. At that point the truck raced back down the hill and you see the result. I was Standing on my brakes as hard as I could the entire time. My throttle return spring had come off. By the grace of God, we didn't flip over. Yes, I was pulling the driver seat out of my butt for the rest of the day.
The Binder Gods were watching over you Buddy. Could have been a very different outcome. Anyone can Monday-Morning QB you, but it's a whole different animal when you in the driver's seat and all you can see is sky, "yikes"! Think you did well Tommy.
(FYI, I doubled my throttle return spring just in case).
Thankx for the words of encouragement Sully.
Well, you made it down with the rig correctly oriented. Read that wheels on the ground. Good job!
