First Impression is Best...
I took my new girlfriend wheelin' with me and this is where we ended up for four hours. I broke her in right! My winch gave out on me at this point, so my buddy decided to get stuck trying to pull me out with his Rubicon.

Thumbs Up if You're OK
Hey man! Here is what happens when you try to gas it hard to get out of one ditch, pop out, fly over the road, and fall into the other ditch sideways.

Shh, Don't Say Anything! Maybe They Won't Notice...
Here's a $55K mistake on a test track. I am withholding my name for job security reasons.

Muddy Footprints
My buddies and I were out driving through some mud, and I thought I could cross the end of this pond. I was wrong. My 40-inch TSLs just disappeared, and after burning up my 15,000-pound winch, we had to regroup. We'll get it out eventually... .
