Well I was testing the latest mods out at Carnegie this morning. I broke the cardinal rule of 4 wheeling /forums/images/icons/blush.gif , I went out alone. I figured no big deal cause there will be other rigs ou there also /forums/images/icons/wink.gif , wrong. I was the only 4WD out there. Still no big deal cause I'm just testing a few things out. Wrong again. I was on the rock pile there and was 3/4 of the way through and got both front and rear axles hung up. Just before it happened I was thinking maybe I should get out and check my line in the rocks. Of course there was no winch point to hook up to so I started stacking rocks the best I could. Of course since I'm just testing a few things I didn't even have a jack with me /forums/images/icons/blush.gif . /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Some cycle riders decide to come over and watch this fool that came unprepared try and get himself unstuck /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . Then it happened, I was stacking some more rocks and some how my hand got smashed by a rock. Of course I was in serious pain but figured I just smashed it until I saw blood dripping. I was holding my hand with the other so I unwrap it and see the bone in my pinky. Now I'm pissed cause, of course since I'm just testing a few things I didn't even have my first aid kit with me /forums/images/icons/confused.gif . I KNOW BETTER THAN TO DO THIS STUFF and even preach to beginners to always bring these things with them whenever wheeling. I wrapped my finger in a dirty rag since that's all I had and proceded to try and get myself unstuck. After a half hour I got my rig out and headed for the Ranger station. All they could do is let me wash it out with water and give me a bandage. I loaded up my rig and headed for home. Called my wife once I got into range and had her call Kaiser for me. They told her I must goto Walnut Creek to be seen at the E.R. So I stop by the house and jump in the van with her and Raven. We then spend the next six hours getting x-rays and stitches. The moral to this story and the reason I'm even telling you (since I'm embarrased how stupid I was) is no matter how quick of a trip or how small the amount of wheelin your gonna do BE PREPARED. David P.S. Did I mention I had a pair of leather gloves in the truck and wasn't wearing them while stacking rocks?
