So our little flop in Mickey’s Hot Tub and a slight further massaging of the tailgate and rear corner in the Escalator on Hell’s Revenge had some repercussions, but were all in good fun. Tailgates are optional on military flatties and later CJ-5s, so we can live without them. It was less than ideal when the gap below the tailgate allowed stuff to fall out the back though. Hanging on the tailgate like a gorilla fixed the issue, although it could have ended with the tailgate torn off and a broken tailbone. Caution!
