Pics of my lunch break today. You will like these

Well, There are some simple trails about 3 miles from work, and today, a buddy and I took our rigs there. I managed to flop it. HARD! As of this post, this happened about an hour ago. I was goin' up this embankment nice and slow (I had already been up it twice with no probs) when my front end started sliding over to the side. I immediately backed off and tried to navigate her back down the hill, but the front kept on goin' and FLOP! Thank god for winches, roll cages, and 5-point harnesses!

Note in this picture, you can see my fingers as I'm tryin' to get upright!

Here's the initial launch shot. I had to rotate this pic so you could see the actual angle of the little ledge.

and yet another.. Here you can see the beaten path that most people took over this ledge. I was goin' to the right of it. It was a lot more difficult, and, of course, NOT the beaten path.
