A few of us were up at Bee Canyon yesterday ..............................
O K ..Here's the story :::
I almost "Lost " my Rhino trying to get "" That one good hillclimb picture "
I was on a dirt mound across the othes side of the trail so I could get a good angle shot ..
I stood behind the rhino and leaned on the tailgate to steady myself while getting the shot
then the rhino started to ROLL down the grade ( P brake was ON )
So I quickly got to the drivers side to at least pull the steering wheel to the LEFT so the rhino wouldn't go into a 50 Ft dropoff and ravine
As we both are moving down the hill my goggles fall in front of my eyes ...I can't see a thing
I stumble on the hillside ... Still holding my $$$$ camera in my left hand I FALL in the dirt ....With my forearm and elbow under me I land on my ribs OUCH !! Still holding the camera
The rhino comes to rest with one wheel JUST on the edge of the dropoff !!!!
I'm Brushing myself off / checking on the personal damage / scrapes and sore ribs ..When a Female Ranger comes along " Are you O K ?? "
""Ya ,, Just slipped trying to get a picture "" I Told her
I have put on 3900 miles on that rhino and NEVER a scrach .....
Now I get sore ribs and road rash trying to get that special shot
I'm staying in the rollcage !!!!!!
Here's the spot , Some of you might know that hill climb::
