Ice Jeepin'

Well, just finished a five hour, 75 mile jeep experience tonight. What started as a trip from Cincinnati to Lexington quickly became jeep on ice as I-75 iced up causing first a three hour backup for 12 miles then 65 miles of slush covered ice.

The jeep did fine on the adventure, though five hours in the seats was tiring.

It has arrived so I'll get my chance to drive in the snow/ice in the morning. My boss has already called everyone with 4 wheel drives to see if we're going to try and come in. Going to leave early and take my time.

You don't have a Hummer Guy do you? Cause he won't make it

If it's icy be careful and drive safe.. Good Luck

Made it with no problem. Thanks! Speaking of Hummer guys, when I had my last jeep I worked with a guy that drove a H2. It wasn't bad. It had the factory wheels with BFGoodrich MTs. He immediately bought some 22's with some low profile high performance street tires. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "You can't get this thing stuck." I asked him to come to the River Bottoms and he declined...LOL!

At my house I got just a hair over 7 inches. We haven't had anything like that in over 10 years.

Yeah, I went to check my deer blind on the 4 wheeler and cut the wheels too sharp and spun right around in a complete circle (in the front yard). After I stopped I thought that was kinda cool, so I kept on cutting doughnuts in the snow in the front yard. Next thing I know my wife and daughter is on the porch looking at me and laughing. As soon as I stopped my wife said, "I swear I think our kids act older than you." So then I did what anyother man would do.......I punched it and cut more doughnuts.......LOL!
