A few lessons reinforced

1. Always make sure that you know where everyone is at when your getting pulled off an obstacle or while you are filming.
2. Obstacle are different at night than in the day even if your very familar with the trail (see comment 1).
3. See the video, make sure that you stand further back than what you intaily think.:

Very stupid mistake and most definitely won't happen again. Don't feel like touching the back of a jeep again.

Flame me if you so feel like doing so. I have my fire-retardant suit ready to go.

Well, if the camera guy was killed I wouldn't be typing this right now. I'd probable jumped back 10' when it happened. Fortunaetly, no one was hurt. My pride did get injured though when the jeep had to resuce my butt when I high-centered my 4runner.

I'll add two more:

5. Make sure that you have cotton balls pulled out of your ears to get out of the way when a vehicle is being recovered

6. Just because you have a locker/s doesn't mean you won't get stuck. Just means you'll get stuck worse .

Tried to take a video while going down one the hills. It's a little jittery. See if you can name the band.
