    Default Embarrassing

    Just a bit... not my smartest idea.



    As backstory, I'd just installed the locked/armored 8.25 I'd driven to Jersey for, and wanted to do some 2WD assaults on stuff to see how well it worked... got a little too happy with the skinny pedal and high-centered on a dirt pile, in the middle of a parking lot. Broke my dinky strap, and the cop was there because someone had called saying, and I quote... "There's a truck stuck on a irt pile, and it's slinging dirt all over the place."

    The dirt getting slung? about two feet behind me from where the rear wheels just dug and didn't hook. The cop laughed and said that technically I wasn't doing anything illegal, since it WAS a parking lot and someone had illegally dumped the dirt there a few weeks before and it wasn't owned by anyone. He told me that the humiliation of a decently-built Jeep getting high-centered (in a PARKING LOT, no less) was punishment enough, and waited there with me shooting the until my buddy came and pulled me out.

    Lesson learned? Mall-crawling is embarrassing and dangerous.

    Oh this is great, and what a great shot. Everyone looks at my Jeep and says "I bet you can't get that one stuck!" I always respond with "You can get ANYTHING stuck!"

    Wow, man, this is great stuff! I'm not poking fun because I have been highcentered once in my life in a parking lot on a BIG snow drift :-)

    Thought I had a pic of a guy in the local VW club. He has a VW van that is 4wd and it is lifted. It is one of the camper models that him and his wife camp in. Found this one....not to bad.
