TTORA Miller Jeep run-Bronco recovery

On Saturday the TTORA SoCal Group had a scheduled run for the Miller Jeep Trail. One of the members took his stock 96' Bronco and slipped off the trail and nearly rolled it. Needless to say it was in a steep and tight area of the Lockwood section, after waiting for help that never came, they decided to leave the truck at 6 p.m. and see if they could get help to recover it the next morning. Needless to say, there was a slow resopnse at the TTORA boards and I got a call early this morning. After a short conversation, I told Wannabe_4x4 that I'd help him out, he said another member was gonna come up from Oceanside to assist, but I told him it wasn't needed. For me the trail was quite easy and I didn't want to be slowed down. It took about an 1 1/2 hours to get to his stranded rig. I then set my winch line and with a little help from another group, an FJ40 added a safety line to the back, while I winched him back onto the trail. Here's the video I took of the recovery; http://www.tundrasolutions.com/photo...cat/500/page/1

Great video!

That was really super cool of you to help him out like that.
Was the FJ40 off on the right side of the video?
