    Most info I know of says 17, and 9 of them were in one accident in 1970, so the numbers are a bit skewed.


    My advice when running a long section of shelf road like that is to have the most capable rig/most experienced driver go first while the rest of the group waits behind. As the leader gets to wide spots where it's possible to pass, they radio back to the rest of the group to move to their position. The leader then goes ahead again and this continues until you're off the shelf road.

    That's not a bad idea. And if you are in a drone-friendly area, it wouldn't hurt to send the bird down first, you'll want the footage anyway. If the coast is clear, send the first rig down and do what you just said.

    It would save everyone a lot of stress.

    Good idea on the drone. I don't have one, as the last thing I need is another expensive hobby, but do wheel with a couple guys who have them.
