Did she just run out of gas after being lost for awhile?

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

Alcohol involved?

I think so. Around 2 in the morning. At least the plates are still on it.

I wish the great Paul Harvey was still with us. "And now, the rest of the story".

Saw this on the SF Jeep group I'm a part of facebook.... some people are crazy. I'd say just go up there and roll it down the side of the hill but that would create so much trash.

Hopefully they stick the owner with the costs.

This is not me in the video, but years ago, on a cross country vacation, one of my first inexperienced offroad trips looking for an interesting road. I found a dirt road leading up to Hurricane Pass in Colorado. We're flatlanders, not at all accustomed to this. White knuckle all the way. Video marked at the point where things started to get 'interesting'.

Or Casey. I never see them in the same vids anymore. Maybe they broke up?

This is what happens when you cross a high performance vehicle with a low performance driver.

I have done some stupid things over the years. Nothing this boneheaded. It was a better outcome than I expected.
