And here we go again…

I always check to see if reverse is working before I get the Jeep into a situation where only reverse will do. Until the time I don’t. And that’s when…


…with an evil chuckle and a twist of his mustache, Murphy strikes.

Got the Jeep stuck good in a sort of impromptu hedge. Called a neighbor for a tow, and by the time he saw the text and replied I had it pulled about a tenth of the necessary distance with a come-along and a combination of a chain, cable and tow strap. I’d have had it straightened out in another hour and a half or so.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    At least you were prepared, necessity is the mother of invention.

    Since you have neighbours with horses, I wonder if you have ever considered a switch to equine powered transportation. It’s like a big dog with badly trimmed toenails.

    I’m impressed you managed to get stuck somewhere that you could use a come along to get yourself out. I didn’t think there is much out there you could attach to.

    Hey Joel, good on you for being able to resolve a problem that a majority would have a melt down over.

    One question, have you ever had a talk with the guys who did the original repair job about what’s going on? Maybe they would have some insight on a possible fix.

    Macgyver meets Murphy and wins. Had to do something like to load and atv on the trailer Putin the boonies deer hunting one time. Quite the adventure.

To the stake with the heretic!
