So I just got home.. 2:15am

So a friend called me and asked if I could use the jeep to help "un-stuck" his car. He apparently had left it where it was and had since gotten back to his house. It was about 7 so I knew we were losing light and he said that it was about 45 mins away and wasn't gonna be a big deal. It was "just up mt. hermon road".

So the adventure begins. By "just up mt. hermon road" he really was past where hermon meets rampart range and then up 322.

So, needless to say I'm pretty pissed at the moment because I get there and find that this fool brought a mid-90s Subaru up there. He's talking as if he does it all the time and it's no big deal. So insanely dumb. I know you guys poke fun at me because I tend to error on the cautious side but I'll be damned if this wasn't the craziest thing I've ever done. Solo jeep, no cell reception, middle of the night, ugh.

I'm exhausted.

The plus side is, I now have a bond with my jeep. At points I was seriously nervous but it worked threw everything like a champ.

Amazing machine, dumb "friend".

Good lord, I'm going to bed if I can.

Once & awhile you gotta be put in uncomfortable situations as a test. One day you might be the dumb friend, just make sure you have the subaru guys phone #.

"If I was stuck, I'd still be there" that is genius. I love it.

The Subaru thing up here in Woodland Park is actually quite common. High schoolers get Subarus and run all over the Rampart with them. So maybe he's from that genre. I used to take our old Forester a lot of weird places, and definitely all over the Rampart. With very few exceptions you can run almost any trail up there with a Subaru, although you might get some funny looks from "built" rigs when you're doing the same thing they are...

Now, I would never even consider it with my wife's new one. That kind of slow, painful death would simply not be worth it.

Even after sleeping I'm still pretty peeved about the whole thing. More so about the "oh it's easy and will only take 45 mins..."

I've done dumb things for friends but I always knew what I was getting into. Especially when a buddy with another jeep is 1 call away...

Chad: Yes I'd do chinamen now. But since I didn't win the lotto it seems that I'll still be going to work on sunday.

BV: Hilarious.

Ed: Yea I've seen a lot of subi's doing stuff like drifting etc... never driving threw areas like what I was in.

Is this like Daniel Boone being a mite confused about where he was?

I haven't been up 322 for quite a while so my memory of it is pretty sketchy. Lately, if I am playing up there I do the loops on 323,4 and 5. 324 is where I was "temporarily detained" a couple weeks ago...

Maybe I'll run up there this afternoon and check out the scene of carnage :-)
