    My buddies and I went on a little evening trip this week-end. One of the guys told us that he knew this great place to go wheeling and it would probably take a couple of hours to get through. Well, it seems that nobody has been through this great little place for the last year so the vegetation was really thick and it was really hard to see where the path was. Anyway, to make a long story short it took us 5 hours to get through due to various problems like one carburator fire in a jeep, one damaged radiator on another jeep, several body parts torn off a Toyota 4 Runner and 1 damaged front locking hub on my K5. Nothing serious but enough to add a little flavor to the whole thing. Just wanted to share this with someone who understands since nobody else I spoke to were able to understand why we were so happy about getting our vehicles damaged.

    AT least you did not strip your front ring, blow up you rear govlok, dent you oil pan, and blown your tranny. This was all a week ago. All that means is time for the second wave of my build up.

    Sounds like you guys had fun, my truck is also my daily driver so I try to keep the damage at a level where it can be fixed before the next working day. Someday I'll invest in a another truck that I will use only for wheeling, until then I will have to control my right foot. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
