Are full size pre runners making three point turns going down the summit or can you stick the turns no problem. I saw on the notes that there was a three point turn or two.

If it was easy, everyone would do it.

You guys ^ are like a couple that texts each other when they're in the same house ;-)

Oh, and I (and many) call it Mano.
The Summit is THE Summit.
The Mini Summit is the Mini Summit.
Mano aint either.
We’re half a mile apart. I’m sitting on a tractor going .5 MPH

Never heard anyone call that mountain Mano. Anyone spot the abandoned house down in the draw with the palms surrounding it? I challenge someone to get a good photo. And the little rancho with the RV towards the edge of the pines…. I can’t believe people live out there that deep.

I also really enjoyed counting the broken down pickups or SUVs along the trail and trying to guess by the rust level how long they had been there. Hope those guys had some good hiking shoes on.

sooo, three point turns , hmmmmm, if someone takes more than 3, are they penalized?😬
Yes, if the vehicle they have behind them catches up during the multipoint turn, they have to give up the lead spot or suffer rear bumper damage, its in the new rules released yesterday.

can a driver of a small awd nimble type car use said tt in the middle of three point turn as a ramp to go down the steep ones quicker?,

Apparently you havent been deep enough into Baja.
I've found Burros tied up to a tree in the middle of nowhere with the rope crossing the single track we were riding.
Pulled into a small village deep in a canyon north of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez side. They thought we were aliens until we pulled our helmets off. Started speaking Spanish to them and they didnt understand much of it.

Listen to story time with Rob Mac on Dirt life. He talks about the 3 point turn and Ivan Stewart pulling up behind him and nudging him out of the way as he took the turn. Ivan didnt need to do a 3 point turn.
