    lol how would you manage that anyway - I don't think a guardrail wouldn't have helped that guy very much.

    that was in belchertown way off in east bum squat its not a main road otherwise im sure there would have been a gaurdrail there which prolly would have stopped him by ruining his truck, he told us that he was backing up and someone was coming up the road so he turned the wheel and went to close to the edge it was a fun recovery car came out without and damage too

    wow...that brings back memories

    I did almost the same exact thing with my truck...I was illegaly offroading so I had to get it out myself, the angle probably wasn't as steep as that situation. The scariest part isn't getting in the position...but rather trying to get out. My heart rate wasn't normal until the next day.
