Jeep rollover in Rimrock?
 
Does anyone have information about a Jeep that rolled on Short and Dirty trail this weekend? The Yakima Herald said it was someone from a Jeep group from Lacey. Rolled on #637. I guess one lone trail saved their lives?

There were a couple of groups on NWW discussing going to Rimrock this weekend including the Eldorado dust devils.

Ok so im new here so ill keep it short, I read all of the replys on that sight. I think maybie some of them should look back to when they were 17? could anyone of told them otherwise? Not to many of them. Ive had guys in there late 20's and 30's preshure me into taking them up to Rim Rock, and i wished i never did. But untill they go there no one understands and alot of them wont lisen.. Also unless you go there, you wont get that kind of skill running 676 at natchees all of the time. Its a double edg .. Im really glad they are ok... :thumbup:

It is a reminder as to why we should keep our equipment in good shape. The roll cage did what it was designed to do. Glad everyone is doing okay.
