When I was 16 I decided to take my new to me 83 Olds Cutlass off roading. Drove it down the power line trails for 1/2hr or so like I was running the Baja 500. Car did way better than I expected on the trails so I decided to climb a huge hill with it...... Got me a 3-400ft run at the base of the hill, hit the first whoop before the hill, launched the car into the air a foot or two and proceeded to nose dive it into the side of the hill. Car came to an abrupt stop and was buried bumper deep in the dirt nose first. I tried "rocking" it by slamming it from R to D with my foot to the floor to get it unstuck. Ended up digging the rear of the car in up to the bumper and overheating the transmission...... It took me 6hrs of digging with a piece of cardboard, jacking it up with the bumper jack and stacking sticks under the rear tires to get myself out. Car drove, sounded and smelled all kinds of fucked up on the ride home that night. The next day I took it to my buddies work and put it on the lift to find out WTF was going on. The exhaust from the rear axle to the Y pipe was crushed flat including the cat & muffler, the oil pan was crushed up into the crank and leaking, trans pan was crushed, tail housing on the trans was broken and leaking, crossmember was bashed and the trans mount was torn in half. Sold it for scrap a week later and ended up buying my first 4x4.

Other than a 72 Camaro I had for a while as a toy, I have never owned another car.

Went out wheeling on a Tuesday night after work in fresh 18” of snow. Should’ve quit while I was ahead. But I went in deeper and fell through some ice into a deep mud hole. Engine hydrolocked right away. Tried to recover myself but had zero luck getting my winch to budge me.

We got a good dump that day.


I walked to cell reception, made a rescue call and returned to my rig to try to recover myself as best as I could. I was frozen in by the time help arrived a few hours later. My father trashed his power wagon trying to follow my track and get to me. But he got me out. Missed 2 days of work after and got minor frost bite in my feet trying to stay warm and recover myself. Recovery took about 9 hours to go 2 miles.



Here’s my truck in the hole, the warn 12000 lb power wagon winch was stalling trying to pull me out. It was a nightmare. But I got out safe and my dog just had a long day sitting in the truck.



Muddy Water got about 10” into the cab and it was a process just to clean that out. Everything underneath was packed with mud.

During recovery after the sun came up-

I've always gotten lucky and drove home. Scariest one was right after moving to CO. I had my old 92 Exploder on 31's and was just out driving around on some old abandoned roads in some BLM land. Decided it was getting late and since no one knew where I was (before everyone had cell phones) I better head home. I knew which direction the highway was so I took the first road I found heading that way. It turned out to be a mistake. I was on top of a mesa. The road started dropping off the side and as I made a left turn past the point of full commitment it turned into a shelf road cut into the side of the hill barely wide enough for me to fit. At this point I had no choice but to go down as the road was loose enough I couldn't back up. The further down I drove the rockier the road got. I made it about 3/4 of the way down and the road disappeared. I got out and walked ahead to scout a path that I thought would get me to the bottom. As I started going again I was side hilling on the loose top soil when the ground gave and I started sliding sideways. I slid around 5 feet waiting for the thing to start rolling, but got lucky and the slider hooked a 2 foot tall tree and stopped the slide. I was able to use the tree as a pivot and turned the front back down hill. I had a clear path to the bottom so I just went for it. Made it down only to find a barbwire fence and a herd of cows wondering who the hell I was. My only choice at that point was to cut the fence and drive through into the field. Got back out and fixed the fence then hauled ass across the field blowing through the ranchers driveway and out onto the highway hoping not to get caught. A few years later I met the owner of the property through a mutual friend and told him the story. He laughed and thanked me for not leaving the fence open.

There are 2 answers to that...

1. I put 20k miles on my hauler and raced the entire country from Feb - June of '18 and got totally burned out. It was a crazy time with my family I'll never forget. But it made me want nothing to do with the car.... I don't touch it and don't want to.

2. started trail riding my rzr's a ton. on a whim I took one racing and had a blast. having way more fun. A year of racing my rzr cost me less than race prepping my 4400 for a single race. I just totaled a rzr playing and don't care I have insurance. Where as a totaled 4400 car would cost me 6 figures.

In the years before Tread Lightly, and all the trail closures, I went swamp bogging thru a swamp. +1 for the traction of Detroit Lockers and Super Swampers. -10 for having to deal with rotting swamp grass, swamp mud, and dead frog guts and fish gill and the SMELL... God that smell. I still have burnt nasal cavities and it's been nearly 30 years. Never again. NEVER. (1985 or so)

Got stuck behind a locked gate up near the ski resorts near Wrightwood.I had a Datsun,buddy had a F250.A little snow on the ground,so the only way out was to drive down the main run.A little slick but not too bad,right?
Problem was,he had no brakes so we chained his truck to the front of mine.About 50 ft into this little downhill adventure,I had the sudden realization that this was not a good idea.My brakes were not holding very well and even with him in reverse,things got out of hand in a hurry.He went sideways,I had no choice but to follow.
We got 3 full 360 loops in before the slope started to level out,and we got stopped.Pretty much a big game of crack the whip in slow motion.
