Mess Of The Month
A Wheel Date
The very first time I took my then girlfriend, now wife wheeling we headed out to the Cleghorn trail in California. I've wheeled everything from the hot tubs in Moab to the rugged Baja peninsula, but this day my ego was more in control than my years of driving experience! Luckily, my lady was all smiles after the flop, and I knew right then and there that she was a keeper!
It's never a good idea to drive through a freshly tilled cornfield after two days of rain.
While on a quick snow-wheeling trip, I decided to try my luck at what looked like an easy ditch crossing. It ended up taking a couple of hard pulls from my buddy's fullsize Chevy to get me out, but we eventually popped my ride free and were back on our way.
