post your stories of you screwing up but still having fun

i'll start. I was snow drifting in the parking lot of my school in a small area, well I spun out and hit one of the dumpsters. Im glad that I only hit my bumper. Lets hear other fail stories where you still had a blast in the end.

Decided that cause the 32RH is such a hardy transmission, I could fix it myself. Now my Jeep doesn't go anywhere.
I haven't got to the happy ending yet. Haha.

I decided to try a hill climb that was too big for my jeep apparently and got kicked over into some bushes that knocked the tail pipe off the hanger. Then as I backed down the tail pipe crumpled and completely bogged out my engine. After we cut off the pipe at the muffler and hung it with some spare exhaust hangers I got up the hill and ended up making a mod on the trail that is still working good with an added tip to keep the fumes away.

Here's a trip to the Imperial Sand Dunes. The dunes are steeper and softer than they look.

Here's where I could have chosen my line a little better in Joshua Tree National Park. I got quite a gash in my sidewall from a rock. I put my spare tire on, which is only 30 inches tall. At that time, my other tires were 31s and I had open diffs, so I didn't think it would be a problem. After I changed the tire, I drove about a quarter mile to the paved road. I switched to 2wd, got on the road, and drove about 300 yards before I heard (and felt) a very loud bang. It must have been my transfer case unbinding when it switched back to 2wd (maybe?). I never had any problems with it after that.

Another whoops! in the Pismo Sand Dunes. It was a little a precarious for a while. You can see the tire marks in the sand show where my jeep slid sideways down the dune. My wife was with me on this trip and had the camera. I had to keep telling her that if the jeep starts to roll, keep taking pictures, because I'm not doing this twice! lol

Here I am high-centered in Walker Valley OHV Area, Skagit County, Washington. The Jeep is high centered on the transfer case skid plate and the transmission oil pan. I sure wish Savvy would make a skidplate for my Jeep with the AW4. First, I tried backing it up while someone was jumping up and down on my rear bumper. We ended up jacking it up and stacking rocks under the tires and then I backed it off the rock.

These pics were also taken at Walker Valley in April of this year. This is the Upper Mainline Trail. Apparently, the trail had just washed out a couple days before we went offroading. The DNR didn't know about it until later that day. I ran right into it and got stuck in the mud. That trail was closed the next day and is still closed. It's not scheduled to re-open until the spring. Eventually, the guy in our group with a winch got through and winched the rest of us through it.

Went on one of my four wheeling trips with the guys and my fiance and ended up in a ditch. Our trail "leader" told me as he's laughing his ass off that I need to take the ditch at an angle next time. All the while everyone else is snapping pictures of me and laughing at the same time. Took our leader's tow strap and several several minutes later of stacking rocks under my tires to gain some traction. Great time!!!
