November 2004 Whoops!

Terry Runs, the Vehicle doesn't
After hunting at my friend's place one stormy evening, I thought I could make it across the "little" creek, Terry's Run. Little did I know that after all the rain, it had become "Big" Terry's Run. The normally 1-foot-deep creek had turned into a 7-footer. By the way, my truck is still not running.

Thank God for Bombproofing!
Humvee + landmine = Whoops!

Girl's Day Out
A bunch of friends went to Sulfur Lake to cause a little trouble and have some fun. The mudhole looked tame enough, considering how hot and dry it was. After two hours of straps and chains (and covering our friend Dan with mud), we finally ended up on solid ground. It took two trucks and a winch to get me out. Nothing was hurt save for a little pride.

Mess Of The Month
Easy Out
I was driving my '68 M35A2 around the edge of this mudhole when the less-than-responsive steering decided to take an unintentional turn. After engaging the front axle, shifting to low range, and burying my Rockwells into the mud, I realized I was stuck. A HEMMIT wrecker pulled me out. My squad leader chewed my ass out, but it was worth it for the photo, right?
