Yeah, it was nearly perfectly flat. Hard to describe. But he and I were out on the super easy roads, basically like fire roads. No rocks, no canyons...
He was at some times right behind me and others I had to stop and wait for a couple minutes. This was at night, it was dark. In that pic, the road basically goes left to right of what you see there. To the left in that pic about 80-100 feet is another little dirt road that "T's" into that one where the Jeep is flopped. We came down the other road and I made the right, onto the road you see there, on the way back to camp. He, I believe went left (the wrong way) and realized that it was the wrong way after what must have been a few minutes, then it appears he came back the right direction, at night, too fast in an unfamiliar road. He hit a small (about 12" tall) rock with his left front tire, which kicked him a little sideways and left his drivers side off the ground as there where no more tracks after that rock on the drivers side, then he nailed a nearly 5 foot tall boulder that must way about 1000 lbs with the passenger side front axle. That pretty much did it, he went *** over tea kettle. So very unfortunate considering we did loads of rough stuff earlier in the day over the course of about 3 hours. Then this one small rock and just a little too much speed made for a bad combination.
I am at work and playing catch up as I was supposed to be back to work Monday, but with the rollover, I got slowed over the rest of the trip and ended up there one more night. I will post more of the trip when I have a few more minutes to do so.
Incidently, the last word was he has a broken nose. Lucky dog really. He is still in the hospital but doing well. They are keeping him because the shock caused various enzyme levels to soar and they want that stabalized first to be sure his kidneys are functioning properly. He may even get released today.
Again, more when I get more info on my bud and more on this trip when I have a few more mins!
