Mean to the Green
After a week of rain, my buddies and I decided to go for a little ride. Little did we know that there was a sinkhole at the end of the pond. Three days later I finally got my truck out with a skidder. It still runs, but the frame is now cracked.

The 39.5-inch Swampers, open diffs, and 5 feet of mud didn't mix. After a motor swap we went back out to try it once again.

Ditch it! It's the cops!
Here is my '88 F-150 stuck in a creek that I thought I could ford with my new 35-inch Swampers. But...I couldn't. Then, someone called the cops and I got slapped with a $650 fine to boot!

Waiting Patiently
This is me and my Ford F-150 after a long, cold, wet night. My buddy and I were wheeling in this pond, and, as you can see, we never made it out. My engine hydrolocked after going in a little too far.
