    A couple nights ago I whent out wheeling with a guy and his sami. Everything was going good at first then for some reason my batery strap broke and the battery hoped off its little mount and laded upside down on my wheel whell and burned to holes through. We finally managed to get it off without the thing exploding in our faces and made up a new strap out of some junk we had then we continued on. Then on the way back down my lights stopped working on the way down and my truck kept stalling and its a really steep incline down hill so with power brakes and steering it was very hard to control. Then because my lights were screwed i didn't see this huge rock and got my diff stuck on it and had to have this little wimpy sammy try and pull me off. We finally got out tho. The last bad thing that happend was near the end of the trail I got a flat and the damn thing can't be fixed because the whole is so big. Oh yeah now my truck leaks oil and it never did before.

    Some place in Coquitlam. Its a trail at the top of westwood plato. Very rocky.
    I was mostly testing my truck out to see what it could do. Next time we should all go wheeling some place for sure.
    It'll be great!
