For those of you that heard me say it around the campfire, I almost died on Saturday. . .or at least got really injured. I made a less than humble line choice at a high rate of speed. Had I prerun that section, I probably would have done the exact same thing but, without the benefit of knowing exactly what was going to happen, I was off camber and airborne for just long enough to have to change my shorts, scare my dog, and yell YIPPEEEEEEEEE
As to the armchair quarterbackery. . .You are absolutely correct in stating that I don't care about the body and that I know what my Jeep will do. The other side of the coin that you didn't mention but were probably thinking and/or saying is that I am absolutely out of my effing mind. That is correct.
Just tryin' to have fun. I love to put the "sport" in our motorsport. . .
As I type that, I have to thank my friends and my Saint of a wife for tolerating me.
Let me be clear (it sounds so trashy knowing our President uses it ALL THE TIME), our armchair Quarterbackery is only meant for entertainment purposes!
Hence the reason I leave it in, I enjoy it, therefore others should too...
Out of your effing mind? Mebbe, Mebbe Not
I nearly followed the same line, but knowing my glide path is akin to the old F-4 Phantom Bomber (like a brick), I delicately chose a more lefterly line.... And somehow made it back out. The funny part was the conversation that was clipped about how folks went up and whether we could get there or not, hence the comment shortly after our re-aquiring the road, we'd have made it...
PS. Keep this on the DL, EVERYBODY LOVES JIMMY, WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?
Oh and thanks for putting the sport in our motorsport, I mean somebody would have to do it if you weren't around...
Stop looking at me like that!
