    You know, I wonder how many mishaps are blamed on GPS, when it's really the drivers stupidity. Thank goodness for GPS,, I can see it now, "hey, this GPS isn't even plugged in",,,

    He left it at the viewpoint to see if he could down the hill faster. Maybe he succeeded. Some of those can haulers that run the area just can't figure out there is a curve at the bottom of that 5% for....I think 4 miles.

    One ridge back he'd be in a canyon.
