Well I think I will pass on being your passenger, I will stick with driving my own, thank you very much. By the way porcupines are hard on tires; dang thing was hiding on a blind corner.

Going thru the trails we are always hitting branches and they just bounce off, well this TREE didn't just bounce off, I was going at a pretty good clip following a couple of quads..I seen.. knew I would hit it, but never let up...I was always told when indoubt power out...:rofl:...well the Cow didn't have enough power to power out of it, it happened so fast that it actualy turned me 90* and stopped me.

Lance tried pulling the tree and it just bounces the Rhintax around....

I finally had to keep going back and forth till I loosed the roots up enough for Lance to pull the tree out of the ground...

The funniest part is when the fire extinguisher went off and covered me..

a friend was videoing it on his phone and posted it on my FB page...Barbara Elliott Rowland... if you want a good laugh...this will be a story for a long time around the campfire and for some reason no one wants to ride with me...:rofl:

Damn! I saw your other post about looking for a pasenger net due to some branhes ripping it & thought nothing of it - until I saw this pic with a tree going through your cab, not even doors would of helped with that one. You give a new meaning to "tree shots" up there.

So I guess the burning question is, did the tree become the fire on the beach later in the day? Glad no one was hurt, when your fire extinguisher went off at first I thought it was your Commander going down in smoke. Glad it was the fire extinguisher instead and that you did not breathe all the chemicals into your lungs.

I'm thinking Lance will never ride shotgun with you again. Definately hazardous to his health. Is Riley Ranch the campground between Spinreel & Hauser? If it is do they have dune access now? Or is this a different area?

No we didn't burn it dang FS frowns upon dune fires..lol

yes when the fire extinguisher 1st went off Lance thought I had smoked the belt when it went off the 2nd time he headed for his fire extinguisher cause he heard someone yell fire (he couldn't see the cow thru the tree)and then everyone started laughing and he thought WTF laughing about a fire..then you heard Chad yell no fire..just fire extinguisher going off..:rofl:...

Lance said after we got back to the trailer..."I love you... you make life interesting"..I'm not sure how to take the 2nd part of that comment...:rofl:

That's why I had to buy the Cow...the dog and I didn't want to ride with Lance anymore...:rofl:..we had been flopped a few times...:giggle:..

when I have a passenger I am a little more cautious...sometimes depends how much adult beverage the passenger has taken in...

Yes That is correct about Riley Ranch..they NOW have the dune access road open...

let us know when you come up...that is our new favorite campground..have reservations for an April & July outtings

I have not been riding where you are riding your machines, I have driven past there a number of time on my way up to Ocean Park Washington when I feel like taking the long road. I love the Oregon and Washington coasts, need to spend more time out there.

I probably would have claimed ignorance and said that it was self defense burning that tree after all it tried to kill me earlier in the day.
