The Waterfall Run with FJ Cruiser
Dave Brooks is a tree magnet on 2 or 4 wheels.

It was a hit and run tree. We were on a hill climb, off camber and Carol wanted out but I needed her for weight on right side so we wouldn't roll over.

Carol Brooks In all honesty, the first tree may have been a little my fault. lol We had just climbed a steep hill and realized when we got to the top we needed to take a hard right. I got out and looked and it looked like it might work... Ended up trying to lean a 3" diameter tree over so it wouldn't scratch up the truck too much. Then on the way back through he misjudged a big rock and ended up with the pumpkin on top of the rock. On a steep hill, off camber and didn't want to try to go down backwards. Camping gear loaded to the roof so couldn't even see out the back window. Then when trying a different angle the tire slipped off a rock and put the FJ into tree. All in all a good trip. Few dents, scrapes and scratches. But when Dave said we were in deep shit, I really started to worry (not something Dave says often)
We did not get pictures of this because I was holding brake hard and Carol was already shaken up being in FJ on off camber experience going backwards to readjust and get rear pumpkin off rock we were stuck on, but we had a tree on the front door at one time.

Was trying to keep track of Harly Friday night, hooked a light to his collar and let him run free in campgrounds. New invention, DOG light.

Of course most adventures are just the 2 of us so we have a 12,000 pound winch and on board air.
