At the time, I didn't. My focus was on the terrain ahead of me, my passenger (my wife) was in charge of video. In short, I executed my job as discussed. After we stopped and I let the whole 'incident' sink in, I was pretty pissed at the potential catastrophe and how close we all came to dying. Keep in mind we were in the MIDDLE of the Alvord Desert in south eastern Oregon, the most remote part of the country. IF we would of collided it's quite possible we would of died out there on the playa as no one would of been available to help us.

This was day 2 of a 9 day dual-sport adventure. A few hours later, my wife broke her ankle after hitting a little sand while going 5 miles per hour.

Anyone wanna take a trip with us!?!?!?
