Flying Ford Exploder??

So last night i was out for a car ride with my friend and his dad. My friend only has his permit so has to have an adult in the car. Yesterday we got our first decent snow fall of about 3" and my friend wanted to take out his new to him 1997 ford explorer. We were about 10 minutes from home after driving for about an hour and 15 minutes. We had just left an intersection and were going about 35 and the back end started fishtailing. All the sudden the back end caught while we were angled and we went up over a curb, Hitting a real fancy stop sign the continued forward over about 10 feet of grass the we 'jumped' off of the steep 8 foot tall hill. The worst part? We landed in a marsh with about 2 feet of murky water putting it in 4lo didn't even help us move an inch. So after a long trip we finally got a tow out from a tow truck. Surprisingly the only surface damage was a cracked windshield(i didn't even notice)...well i just thought i'd tell you my story

I was expecting a video. Boy, am I ever bummed out now. Glad your okay and sounds like you had fun while doing it. The best part about them types of accidents is flooring it to see how much damage you can do.

Sounds like a good memory was made and no one was hurt. Not even a jeep was damaged.
