Easter weekend of 2005 in Moab we were waiting to run Rim Rock Trail when a Toyota coming down rolled on top of us.

This is what happens when you back your 12,000-pound bucket truck into a 3-foot-deep ditch that was deceptively solid looking. It was, in fact, filled with storm debris in Slidell, Louisiana (just the other side of Lake Ponchatrain from New Orleans), putting lines back up. Four brand-new mudders, 4.10 gears, a Detroit Locker, and a granny gear were no help so my buddy with a heavier bucket, a big-block, and a stick did tractor duty.

After a fun day at Turkey Flats ORV Park in Kentucky, I found myself in a hole everyone said I couldn't make it through. They were wrong, except for my power-steering box breaking off in the process.
