    My god... What a shitty way to learn that lesson. Note to self: If I ever hit the trails, do some research about proper recovery equipment!

    Someone got a picture of it at the dealer. I guess insurance is taking care of it.

    I want to see how they finally got it to the street where a tow truck could get to it. Haha dragging it down the trail.

    If insurance covered it I’m amazed. Lessons learned.

    He didn't learn. He might even star in his own show about himself called "Tool Time."

    That price isnt that bad. I figured it would be more than that with the body damage

    I was just guessing. It’s probably more after dragging it a mile to the road.

    I was just pointing out that it’s a fraction of the cost to add proper recovery points and have the right equipment.
