learning experience

got high centered, should have stopped like i was going to, but you can only learn the limits by pushin them haha. not even really a trail, just a quad path behind our softball field. oh and some hornets decided to leave me a present lol

I actually had to step down to get into her. We got evacuated later that day because our town caught on fire, and i had to leave her for three weeks, it was 90% water when i left, 100% dried up mud when i got back

10 hours of digging, 5 minutes of winching and i was out
