were you intentionally going down that or what?

I know you believe you understood what you think I said
but I am not sure you realize that what you heard
is not what I meant

Nope. It is a long story, but the condensed version is.....the road is "S" shaped there, I was going to fast, slid left, counter steered, slid right, tried to counter steer again, but it was to late. I hit that stump head on and launched. It was pitch black and every difficult to climb out.

I had that truck for about 3 weeks, and it was a right-off. To bad, as it had a 9" rear, manual tranny, factory boat rack and a brand new Dynomax exhaust that was installed two days earlier.

You may owe that stump a thank-you from the looks of the terrain.

there is no such thing as stupid questions, just stupid people.

Thanks. It was tough to handle at the time, but such is life. I learned my lesson.

No doubt, I could have gotten some good air! It's only about a 12'-15' feet to the bottom, but there is a creek down there somewhere.

That sucks. Why would someone burn a decent rig to the ground. Heep or not, it looked nice. Why can't they burn junky hondas or something?

Dunno. Soem of these punks enjoy taking trucks like this, beating on them for a few hours, then dumping/torching them. I see a new one almost every trip.

That one I ran into was a good thing, as a few days earlier, the owner had posted up on a local board that the truck was stolen, and he lived in that area. I mentioned that we'd keep our eyes open, and voila! We found it.

Because that's usually the best way to get rid of evidence. Next time I go out I'll bring the camera and snap some pics of the 4-5 stolen/trashed hondas and toyotas out here, It's not a pretty sight

I would love to wheel with you, the entertainment value of just watching you beat on your rig would be worth the price of admission.
