Oh,no no no! This isn't about me! I'm the sanest most practical guy on here!

I do remember saying "Where's your sense of adventure."once. After that I got our truck stuck way back on a mud road and had to walk to a farm house. Also, when I was young, I would do some amazingly stupid things with a car.

I think it has the possibility of being a great thread. I will have to think of a tale I could tell. Will try and post something later. I wanna hear everyone else's in the meantime. :D

Put a 51 Desoto Cub Coupe at 50 mph through a narrow 1 lane railroad tressel all Catewampas on a gravel road, with sparks coming off the front and rear bumpers. To this day I don't know how I made that left turn on the other side?

There was a tight curve on both ends and I forgot it was there?

Not exactly the same, but back in high school, I used to go dirt biking with my friends & our wood shop teacher (Billy). Well, we were doing some hill climbing and our teacher Billy pointed to a steep hill covered in briers. He then said "I'll kiss the a$$ of anyone who can make that climb". Well, in my book that is a dare, and I never backed down from much when it came to dirt biking dares. I didn't have a beer, but I soon as he said that, I fired up my Honda & hit the hill fast & hard. Once past the steepest section, the hill leveled off & made a nice ride along it's ridge. I came back & Billy wouldn't say a thing! I did have to pick a few briers out of my arms & legs, but it was worth it! Today....no way!!!!

After I came back, I told everyone about the nice trail up there, so everyone EXCEPT Billy took off & rode the ridge.

Similar to OCH's.. I used to race down hill mountain bikes.. There is a section that was always closed off on one trail.. we took the ribbons down so we could attempt it. Of course everyone said Lets get G to do it. Well heck ya sure. off i went.. only to find out it was a frame bending 16 ish foot drop with a flat landing area. Brutal. I woke up in the hospital 8 broken ribs, broken jaw (it was wired shut) and a broken wrist. I sure asked for a beer after that..

Had to make a refreshment run before bottle store closing time (10pm) so two buds and I hop into the '84 K5 Blazer I had at the time and head the 2 miles into town. 1/2 mile of gravel, onto a tar road that was under contruction. They had just started the project, they were in the process of milling off the existing asphalt. So we're cruising along at 55 coming to the point where the blacktop was still intact, right at the end of the driveway of the farmer I worked part-time for in the winter months. Lots of signs warning about the bump ahead. But, I see Gus headed down his drive to go to the same place Brother Jay, Big E, and I are headed. So the race is on.

So, I yell the topic header phrase, and shoot between the two Type III's on the shoulders. Did I mention this county road has been repaved a couple of times without removing the previous? That it was over a foot of mix that had been milled off? And they really didn't spend a lot of time and material making the ramp back up to the existing?

Gus hits the binders because he knows I'll run him over, and sits back and enjoys the show. I thought we got a little air, Gus estimated 3 - 3 1/2 feet. I was doing 65, so I'm not sure how long of a stretch we were airborne. I do know that things didn't go well for my passengers. Brother Jay in the front seat didn't fare well. Remember the passenger front seat in the K5's? Flips forward to access the rear? Makes a fine catapult straight to the dash! Big E (Eric) in the back seat tried to hit the deck. He didn't make it. The deck got him first. Flipped him up on the center console. The bounce (we went up twice more, actually) put him back into the rear seat just ahead of the subwoofer box headed for the same piece of real estate coming all the way from the back end. He claimed that actually hurt quite a bit.

So we get to the shop with a minute or two to spare. Fill the tender in on the adventure. Gus tells the story over on the on-sale portion of the building so we don't have to tell the story twice, and away we go, back to where from which we came.

Back in high school my best friend and I were out doing our regular Thursday night beer drinking back roads running,while flying down one road we were talking enjoying the tunes on the radio as we went over a large hump in the road a few seconds later we both looked at each other as we noticed all road noise was gone at that same instant we heard the tires chirp as we touched down.No clue how long or how far we flew.

We used to party a lot at a friends apartment,one of our rules was when someone got up to go get a beer if anyone else yelled beer you had to get them a beer,well one night I got up to get a beer and a friend promptly yelled BEER! Being slightly intoxicated I grabbed him a beer out of the fridge and turned around and threw it at him nailing him upside the head nearly laying him out cold! Needless to say a no throwing beer rule followed shortly after that episode. :bigrofl:

I bet that has happened with 80 percent of beer drinking friends. I bounced one off my buddies head when he wasn't looking (neither was I) i just tossed it in his direction.. cause of that same "beer" rule..

I went to a bonfire party at a buddies house some 25 miles away from my house with my gf (now wife) driving my 90's cherokee. Fully planning on the gf being sober which she was, so i was deep into a bottle of goodness when my buddy decided to start playing in his sandy yard with his explorer.
He got buried and couldnt get out. So being the nice guy i am and to show him up i said i'll get my jeep and pull your butt out. I hooked on to the back of his explorer with the back of my jeep. Tightened up the strap and gave'r. Snapped him right out, then a funny sound and feeling as he threw it back in drive and was roosting sand onto my jeep and stopping both of us. I was stuck pretty much instantly and he was too. So the tug of war/trying to get out commenced. I was cranking the wheel back and forth when i heard a loud pop in the front end then i drove right out. Left him buried in his yard and parked the jeep.
Gf drove home and i was too drunk to realize anything. In the morning she told me that the jeep drove like crap on the way home and jerked bad when turning. Sure enough i found that the loud pop was the spider gears snapping and locking the front end like a spool. That she had to drive home 25 miles like that.
