donít go against your credo or show off: a lesson in irony
i posted the following on my regional, home forum but figured jko could either learn something from it or enjoy it or ridicule me - as did more than half the other riders at the park did yesterday ,since they watched me make an ass out of myself & do about a grand$ worth of damage to the jeep. (Iíll remind ya that Iíve come to this park - it is notorious for body damage, moreso when wet- for like,over 6 years & know super-well how any lapse or lack of thinking can have some nature sh*t at this place quickly eat any thing on two or more wheels thatís out there ) ( thats if I cared to fix it back to the way it was , which I donít really care to )
I guess this also is good visual aid to help newer riders to be aware that , regardless of your experience level, if you ainít prepared to do some damage to what your driving you probably donít need to take the thing to wherever you have it when you think this thought.
So, here was the post :
irony and lessons learned even after 5 decades of living ;
When you are comfortable, relaxed & enjoying your trail for the day
, donít get so lax that you break your credo of , ď never show offĒ & ďknow when to back-off a lineĒ or else crap like this happens:
oh, the irony?
I had replaced that pssgr mirror just last month for third time and had , literally, just given the last payment to the credit union Friday past to pay her off.
the rip off OEM fenders did what they were supposed to. The sliders saved everything; without them, the tree would have eaten everything from the back door forward. It was slow- motion,sideways backwards sliding at its most nightmarish. I could only ride along , realizing what Iíd done as it slid slowly , crunching and eating jeep bodywork and plastic parts.
(Donít show off and no, you probably canít make that never taken path , fwiw)

yeah, just tryin to make a few people laugh resulted in that.
it was funny..not as much today...it was an awful and helpless feeling to be so aware of multiple violations occurring to my rig but in a slowmotion,backwards mode that I was powerless to stop at once; Icould hear the Bestop rain drip rail along top just draaaaagging across, bark slowly moving forward just as , across my peripheral vision flies my pssgr fender just after I turn away from watching the brand new pssgr side mirror slow crunch backwards off. As the well trimmed , painted black plastic pssgr fender lands beneath my driver door after flying over cab , I started laughing. ďHey, those are sposed to do that!Ē.
If it were not for the
sliders taking 90% of the tree contact, it could be much, much worse. If anyone cares, Iíll grab a picture of them later ...I only realized well after that they prevented massive damage. I know, no good photos, srry
It ainít that big a deal, I know. Just ironic.
