My friend and I were running Billings Canyon Trail in Grand Junction, Colorado, when we broke an axleshaft. As we were limping home, we tripped and fell end over end. As my friend Jeramie screamed like a little girl, the Krispy Kremes and the Hi-Lift went airborne. After ratchet-strapping the radiator back away from the fan blades, we drove the rest of the way down, blowing a tire bead only three more times.

I was testing my new auto box and fuel-injection system when my Jeep decided to chase a squirrel up a tree.

Here is me getting my Whoops Wings in my FJ40. I was 10 minutes into my day when I slid off a rock, and flop, onto its side. I have a fiberglass body and it didn't even crack, but I broke my other mirror, so now I have a matching set.
