    Thanks bud. Yeah, cell service was nice. Iím putting a CB on the short list as a back up.

    Iíd almost pulled the trigger a few times on a winch, problem is these damn plastic bumpers. Now that Iíve run it over & over in my head, Iím a jackass for just not getting out and checking. Thatís really the WORST. If Iíd just jumped out I would have known & this all would have been avoided.

    Have you ordered your new tires yet?

    It's not just a Jeep, it's an amusement park on wheels.
    Thatís the one positive. Me and Hudson had FUN. It was scary & I'm lucky it worked out, but I never lost my cool. Youíre totally right now thisíll be a great memory. Iíve got a bit of a temper sometimes & another lesson Iím taking home is that part of what saved us was a good attitude.

    And no, tires will come after the winch 😂
