Hi all,

Sounds like we are off the hook for this one.

I got a message from Al today, he was not able to catch up with Rocky the owner.

As it stands Rocky may try to recover his 80 this weekend. He may reach out to us for support. If you are around and wish to head up to Red Cone this weekend, stay tuned.

Makes me miss my old FJ60 that I bought when I first moved to Colorado. Further proof (as if Top Gear hadn't given us sufficient proof already) that it ain't easy to kill a 'yota.

It's been a long while now, (like almost 1.5yrs ago), but what ever became of this SUV?

A 4x4 forum took over and it's members helped get it out.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Same topic, different incident. Does anyone know what's up with the rolled Dodge Durango on Mt McLellan? Just above Santiago Mine in the Leavenworth Creek drainage which is the valley east of Stevens Gulch (Grays and Torreys valley).

There is/was another one over by James Peak Lake. I remember seeing an image in somebody's TR a few months back.
