Ahhhh ok. I was hoping I didn't have to grab my E-Tool & dig a fighting position. <---Marine joke.
Funny story. I was feeling adventurous today and took the Jeep over to the sand pit across from the FSCJ on Beach. San Perkes I believe it's called. I hadn't been back in there too deep, since I just yesterday got 4wd back. Anyways, I'm crawlin back in there and it's getting narrower by the foot. They were looking more like 4wheeler trails. All of a sudden this little grey tj comes flying out of one the trails in reverse. It seriously looked like someone fired it out of a slingshot. He burries the rear end on a sand pile and hops out to say hello. I ask him how it looks, and he says no way for him, but I could swing it. He was bone stock. He then goes to leave, and he's going nowhere. He then dismounts his tj again, and this is what occurs.
Mike: You gonna go back there?
Me: Nah, gotta work in an hour.
Mike: Aight. You mind giving me a hand with this situation?
Me: Ha, yeah lemme pull back around ya.
Me: Mike, you gotta chain or strap?
Mike: Of course I don't.
Me: Alright, I've got a chain. But for the record, we should not be using a chain at all, agreed?
Mike: At this point man, I could give a sh*t.
Me: Very well. Hook up.
Me: You're one lucky f*cker, aren't you? Who knew, I'd just show up outta nowhere?
Mike: Lucky day, man. Lucky day.
So I pull him out, and ask him if he's heard of jeepforum. "Jeepwhat?" he says. So I wrote the site down for him, and tell him to join up. I found the entire incident pretty amusing. I wonder if some stranger will just appear when I get stuck at 3pm on a Wednesday. I hope so.
Mike, if you've joined up and are reading this. It was great to meet ya!
