Yep - I might not be seeing what others are seeing here.

I guess we’ll never know why he didn’t negotiate that turn. Perhaps he became so mentally rattled and muddled after losing his A/C and awning to that tunnel that he failed to prepare for the immediate hairpin turn. It wouldn’t be the first time that one mistake would lead to an even worse mistake. I can almost see this guy trading in that Montana on a B+ RV after that nightmare.

Good point, Oakman- oftentimes mistakes lead to more mistakes.
