    I had a good one. I was ascending a trail, with switchbacks, on my way up to the rocks further on the mountain. After a left, leaning over on my drivers side, my right front tire walked up the slope. I then found myself balancing on only my drivers side tires. We were going over when I put it in Neutral, let go of the wheel, and I rolled backwards out of it. :D

    My brother was kinda freaked out. :surepal: We would have rolled down the hill to the trail below had we gone over.

    What about you? :thumb:

    1st time wheelin, went in a mudhole, and went a little to the left, of where the guy in front of me did. Hooked a rut, left side tires were on the dry bank, rights down deep in the hole. If i was standing in this hole, the dry ground would be level w/ my eyes.....It was an "OH #$&^" moment.

    Climing out of a ravin/crevis, seeing how far I could go up the high side with the passenger side. I think I went to far:D

    no just smokey, wicked truck though f 550, with dule rammsey winchs, pulled me out side ways the chevy one ton couldent do it, even with a snach block on a tree (my idea).


    there waqs some stuipid frence man parked on the road, and i when to go around him, and the wife started freeking, so i stoped and got stuck then my jeep/ford buddys stupid ideas (wouldent listen to me) put me there.

    so i just waited till morning to get it out, ah well.

    it only cost me 30 bucks and 2 coffies, used CAA (AAA) so only had to pay for the seconed truck as i was about 40 feet shy of where the road ends, any more and it would have cost me a lot more:frown1::crazy::crazy:
