At Least She's OK
My name is Andrea Painter and I never see pics from Alaska, so I figured you all should see this. It was my 1995 Explorer, and all I have to say is that it doesn't like going up on two wheels. Needless to say, this one got traded for a 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo V-8 with a Quadra-Trac.

Mess of the Month
D.O.A. Jeep
After the first big snowfall of the winter, my little sister gave my husband the brilliant idea to go four-wheeling (without my knowledge). I was wondering where they went. While jumping a bank, he didn't see the 5-foot culvert, and this happened. At least I got the pleasure of taking the pictures of his foul-up!

Digging Ditches
A buddy and I were wheelin' in Northern Nevada when I slipped my 'Yota into this washout that wasn't wide enough for an ATV. My buddy pulled me out with his Jeep, but I had broken the frame behind the cab on both sides.
