We need alot more action in this section. So here's a few pictures I've found of some of my (and other's) past blunders. If you got some, post 'em up! :oops:

This is a friend of mine. I have no idea how he got stuck there! (East of Plaster City.)
Image

Here I am in Carrizo Creek. This was probably only my 2nd time through here when my Jeep was stock.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Stuck on this stupid little rock! (Upper Coyote Canyon.)
Image

StevesKJ. The weld on the upper a-arm broke. (Table Mountain.)
Image

Ecchamberlin, also Table Mountain.
Image

A friend of mine getting hung up on a rock just down from Diablo Drop-off.
Image

Found this lady on the way down to Borrego Springs. It could have gone alot worse.
Image

Busted a rear leaf spring out in Ocotillo Wells. Going too fast and came up onto a ledge that ran halfway across the wash.
Image

Image

Mmmm... I don't quite remember this one. (Carrizo Mountain.)
Image

Flat tire along the Mojave Road. I just wasn't paying attention.
Image

Well, that's it for now. If anyone else has similar pictures, let's see 'em! :oops: :lol:

I gotta picture of your annihilation of the electrical box at BorregoFest but I'll never post it! Still nothing quite compares to these. Ah the memories! :twisted:
