One-Man Mud FestUpset at the idea of not being able to go mud-bogging with his friends, Tim Berg had a one-man mud fest on his family's farm. The only problem with that was his '85 Ranger 2WD didn't stand a chance in the thick Minnesota mud. The truck was later pulled out with the family tractor. Hey, Tim, just a thought, but next time you go mud-bogging, use a vehicle with larger tires and a lift.

Jumping JesseRebecca and Chuck Londrigan of Tuckerton, New Jersey, are responsible for sending us this photograph of their friend Jesse Lieter, who was jumping hills in his Ford beater. They tell us that the vehicle flipped over after busting an axle during a jump. They also tell us that nobody was hurt. However, we strongly suspect there was head trauma before the incident even took place.

Which is Worse?We're still trying to decide which was worse, the stuck or the letter submitted by Mario Ercolani that made absolutely no sense. Mario stated, "This stuck occurred when James Carone happened when we thought we would go through this swap one night after work." What you talkin' 'bout, Willis? We think he meant - wait a minute, we're not sure what he meant. Whatever the case, we know the Ford and Dodge were both stuck somewhere in the backwoods of Maine. Mario goes on to tell us, "After four hours, we got a skidder down to here to pull them out. Then the skidder almost got stuck, too." OK, after further review, the letter wins hands down.

Black Hawk DownThis wannabe Rambo-mobile sank at Roosevelt Lake, Arizona, while owner Jess Jepsen was out searching for a campsite. Whether he liked it or not, he apparently found one. After sinking the truck further, Jess radioed a tow truck for help to the tune of $350.
