I was driving on a forest road in Sequoia National Forest when I decided to pull over to the side of the road to take some photos. Unfortunately I did not see that there was a drainage ditch on the shoulder and by the time I had one of my wheels was off the ground. I tried to reverse but the weight of the jeep shifted and I rolled over into the ditch.
Luckily I did not suffer any serious injuries. I had made some attempts at self recovery using the winch but the jeep was wedged into position and the winch line snapped. All of this happening just 2 days into what was meant to be a 2 week vacation. Having exhausted all other options and being 30-40 miles away from cell service so I had to activate my AquaLink View Personal Locator Beacon to get help. The beacon did it's job flawlessly and help arrived soon after. I will never forget the relief I felt when the Sheriff Deputies arrived. I am really upset about losing my jeep but the important thing was that I got home alive and safe.
Thank you for making a such a great, life-saving product. I don't want to think about what could have happened without it.
