Roll over #4
Well, in a "Don't ask me how I did it here" tone, i managed to lay my zuk over yesterday evening at Uwharrie. No Alcohol involved, no "Hey guys, watch this", ...just moving to the side of the trail so some toyotas could pass.
We were on a one lane trail trying to get up to Kodac rock. Some toyotas were coming down the obstacle. We all started to pull over to the side and let them pass. Well someone parked where I was going to so I just decided to pull up on a berm and park. Well wouldn't you know it...some berms don't like it when you pull up on them at an angle. This berm was quick to show me who was boss. I have laid my zuk over 4 times. The first 3 were all what I would concider "soft" roll overs. This one was a little different. First I was a dumb @ss for not putting on my seat belt...but hey, I was just pulling up so someother vehicles could get by. NEVER again. If my @ss is in the seat, my belt is gonna be on. As the berm flexed it's mighty muscle and threw me off, all I could do was try to scramble for the passenger side so I would not have any parts sticking out of the drivers side. Well it's kinda hard with OUT my seat belt on and no door. I managed to grab the far bar on the passenger side. When it hit, my left shoulder was thrown into my overhead switch panel. It is all bruised and super sore. My butt ended up where my drivers window would have been. I should have been crushed under the cage. I am lucky though, I am alive, I walked away, and I drove my zuk away. That is the only time I can ever remember being in my zuk withOUT my seatbelt on. And low and behold that's the time I got hurt and had the worst lay over yet. Please, Please wear your seat belts at ALL times.
