I don't get on here too often, but I do know that there are a lot of good experienced guys here.
Well I had one of those "Wow, I'm an idiot" moments today and long story short, my 86 4Runner is halfway over the edge of the trail all the way at the top of Mary Ellen Gulch in AF Canyon.
Believe me, I've already realized how dumb/reckless/whatever-other-adjectives-you-want-to-throw-in-here it was, so I'd appreciate everyone skipping the lectures.
But if anyone would be willing to go up and help me attempt to save it, I would GREATLY, SERIOUSLY appreciate it.
And the help of someone with some truly legitimate recovery experience would certainly come in handy because I'll tell you right now it's not gonna be a quick, easy job.
Or to put it another way, I've already accepted the fact that it very well could just go over in the process of trying to recover it.
But I do think it's possible...
Anyway, I didn't have the sense to take a whole bunch of different pictures, but I did get this one.
To give you a little explanation - the picture makes it look milder than it is, of course.
Above the treeline, so nothing to hook to or winch from besides a small boulder which the winch line is attached to. I doubt it's good for much though.
And of course, the winch died as soon as I started trying to spool it in. I reset its breaker and still no-go, so I'm thinking it's a more serious internal issue.
Though, like I said, even if it was working, I don't think it would do me too much good.
Also, there's no way for anything to get around to the front of the truck.
So again, if anyone would be willing to help me out, it would really mean a lot.
And obviously, there would be dinner ...or beer, or whatever in it for you.
If you have any other questions about the positioning or situation, feel free to ask.
Thank you guys.
