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. :lol:
Just tryin' to have fun. I love to put the "sport" in our motorsport. . . :lol:

As I type that, I have to thank my friends and my Saint of a wife for tolerating me. :lol:


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... :lol:

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... :lol:

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! :shock:

Building a capable off roader is easy, building a street legal one that you can wheel and then drive daily is the challenge...

First my apologies, I had promised to keep the videos short.

However, Sunday really had no break point to split the film, so you'll have to endure a longer clip. On a good note it's a very good documentary of the days events, and everybody experiencing that, although I may or may not have experienced more than my share... :lol:

Without further adew (is that really a word, did I spell it right? Oh well it sounds good right?) here is Sunday's clip... :lol:

And it's done 3 days earlier than Ms Mandi guestimated!

No . . . .seriously. I am. I have a note from the doctor (Exhibits compulsive, irrational behavior highlighted with a distinct lack of fear and a decreased sensation of speed) :P

Orville is like a P-51 with a tail full of machine gun bullet holes. . . .

Weird, I have a duplicate letter from mine, but I only use mine at work...

Still a lil' timid at throwing a $40k (5000 lb) rig into stuff when other options exist... Plus we're trying to keep her pretty enough to make our debut in the JK-Experience next year (fingers crossed)... :roll:

Much more comfortable scaring the lives out people with big Red & Black trucks that cost way more and have sirens...
