They say most car accidents happen within a few miles of home. This random statistic ran through my head just a few minutes after flopping my Ranger at my old stomping grounds in the Uwharrie National Forest. Though I've driven this exact trail countless times, a new line choice sent my Ranger for a sheetmetal-crunching tumble. Luckily I was surrounded by a crew of veteran wheeling buddies and we were able to quickly right the truck, unclog the driver-side cylinder bank, and finish out the trail.
