    That is in Wellsville, at or near the playground. I remember that because I almost flew out of the back! Darn ejector seats. I also took that pic.

    Jerry, I seem to detect a pattern to your driving. I don't know if I will ever ride along again :p:

    LOL....I have had a Flop a year since I've modified my Blazer 3 years ago...
    It usually happens at the end of the season...when I've gotten bored with the same old obsticles...and try to hit them different to make them more challenging...this time I hit some wet leaves..then my frontend slipped out.
    Noone was around to hook my winch up...I had no choice but hang on. :eek1:

    Here's the first one a couple years ago..in Vinton. :eek1:

    I guess you guys endorse acid-free batteries!!!

    Once I get a cage, I might be more willing to try more difficult obstacles...
