Yes, fortunate that he and his wife and son lived. Amazing, at seeing that picture! Pictures like that are what I keep in mind before I go wheeling, especially in the mountains.

Put some dirt on it and walk it off. Seriously, though. Regardless of what somebody did in the past, this shows why some people don't need to go outside. The Forest Service has had to close all the forest access roads during the winter here, and I was told by the ranger who is head of law enforcement that it was because of all the Derps in SUVs and Jeeps with all the new gizmos to get them where they didn't belong. They get stuck then get on their smartphone to cry for help, then the rangers have to deal with them. Not like how a prepared 'wheeler would plan ahead. So, just easier to close the roads for three months till the spring. This is like the ijits that get a Jeep and think it's a submarine!

I feel sorry for the family having to be the victim of his stupidity.

He should'a left them at the bottom of the hill when he said, "Watch what I can do with the Jeep - hold my beer!"

Maybe there'll be a divorce in the future...

Wow. So many are ready to condem this guy for one very stupid act. We've all done something stupid in our lifetime...doesn't mean we are all bad or stupid on a regular basis. Cut the guy some slack. It sounds like he's done a lot serving for our country as well as his own community. Don't get me wrong, what the guy did was stupid and endangered numerous lives, including his own and he should be held accountable, but flaming the guy as a whole, is narrow minded.

Patting an idiot on the head and saying "Poor little thing!" is narrow minded, vet or not, and has gotten us a lot of the problems we have today. We have tried to make the world idiot safe, now it's full of idiots. I just saw a commercial for a new Merc that will slam on the brakes if you aren't paying attention and something comes out in front of you. Here's a thought, get your head out of your @$$ and think a little bit.

When I was a teenager we went hiking on foot in Colorado.
A friend and I decided to climb up the face of a cliff.

Half way up there was a ledge which was a steep slope of very hard sand. You couldn't walk across it because you'd slide about 20 ft. down the slope and right off the end of a 50ft. drop. We theorized that we could run across it and make it to the other side before sliding far enough to go off the end. So we got across that barrier by risking our lives in such a way that the smallest mistake or quirk of fate would have likely gotten us killed - for absolutely nothing.

If I was rewarded with 'just desserts' for every incredibly stupid thing I've done I'd be dead 10 times over.

Or you could have had dozens of SAR personnel risk their lives to rescue you, as they do when many people over extend their abilities and good sense.

I am a ski instructor at that mountain. Most of the time that trail is closed. If were lucky its open for a couple of days the whole season. When it is there are so many ski injuries on that slope that we joke about putting a medi-center at the bottom. its steep and icy and has a double fall line. There is no way anyone could possibly wheel that thing. The snowcats can't even go up that thing without a winch. The other thing is last year they came in and blasted all the rock to put a new pipeline in. So basically Its all loose rock and gravel on a double fall line with a lot of moisture not a very good combo.
