Recovery Equipment.

Found another piece of equipment that I shouldn't leave home without. A disposable camera!
I dropped my wife off this morning and decided to "play" with the Jeep for the half hour before I had to be at work. I should have known better by now.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. I went to play in a familiar spot and decided to take a short cut out through a newly cleared spot where some development is going in the next year. Started out fine, packed dirt, real safe...
Good thing the front bumper sticks out to act as a bridge or I would have sunk my fan into the mud aswel. The front end just suddenly sank into thick, chunky mud. I was going to work so my only recovery tool was the folding shovel strapped to the roll bar. Thank God that off-roaders have a comunity spirit. Acouple guys in a Chev gave me a yank and set my free. Only a half hour late for work and very muddy shoes. If I only had a camera!

'88 Sahara, 4.2, auto.

That would have been a cool [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] picture! How did you explain the mud and being late at work? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] "I, um, took a shortcut that wasn't, ah, all that short"?

I carry three 35mm cameras with me all the time but every time I get stuck somewhere I allways forget to take pictures until after I'm free[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
