A good lesson in looking before you drop in

If you’ve ever ridden the Oregon sand dunes, you know there are a lot of tempting “tree holes” or hillclimbs along the tree line or bodies of water in the dunes.

Clearly this fellow assumed he’d be able to turn his quad around at the bottom and realized about halfway down the hill that it just wasn’t the case. Fortunately for him he managed to get straightened out and made it up the hill without too much trouble.
