Nope, I split from the group right as everyone was getting geared up. Went home, crashed out.

Bad Vietnamese food the night before.

FYI - Don't assume somebody isn't coming the other way on the fire roads heading up to the Rock Inn from Rowher or DWF. A good friend of mine was involved in a nasty head on collision on Saturday. Broken arm, crushed pinky, broken ring finger, broken tib / fib, and whatever the hell else. Scary stuff

Yeah, I know, we are all guilty of hauling ass when we maybe shouldn't though. He wasn't moving all that quick apparently, and the other guys weren't either; just bad timing I guess and not enough time to react. WHAM.

Hope he heals up fast . . . I was concerned on Sat up at LPNF with all the hunters out . . . come up on a switchback on East Frazier only to find a quad around the corner . . . definitely took it easy along the top as I've never seen so many people out. Was glad to make it out without a head on or any bullet wounds.

So how does this turn out? The guy wearing the helmet cam was on the left side of the road. But also the guy wearing the helmet cam appears to be going up hill which might give him the right of way. Hopefully no litigation was involved but thats highly unlikely these days.
