A great survival story not too far from here!

I've driven this road many times over the years.  Not very far from Grouch estates.  I can testify that the road is indeed twisting with some very sharp drop offs.  It is a canyon road through some rugged country.  The Grouch daughters spent a weekend at a camp along this road and were delivered in the old Samurai.  Lucky we didn't fly off the road!

A 67-year-old man found alive days after his car plunged 200 feet off a mountain road built a makeshift camp, ate leaves and drank water from a nearby creek to survive, his daughter said.
After several days of radio silence from their dad, David Lavau's kids reported him missing to police. As rescue workers conducted an official search for the missing man, the Lavaus set out on their own.
The family members were the ones who located David Lavau at the bottom of a ravine in the Angeles National Forest in California Thursday.
