I'm glad you all enjoy the photo. A friend of mine was filming me when I went into that hole not realizing how deep it was. I paniked and mashed the gas and came flying out by pure luck. But I got a write-up in their local paper along with the picture, so I had to pretend that I planned the whole thing.
As far as the wife goes, she refuses to wash it and complains all the time about how much money I spend on it. The only time she goes off-road is when she's trying to put on lipstick.
