ice-ice-jeep-01

From WITN's website in Greenville, NC come two photos of a crazy ice formation from the front end of a Jeep Cherokee that connected to the sidewalk where the Jeep was parked.

Back in the day before our first Jeep, George and I attempted Mud Springs in our ’99 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4, and on another outing we borrowed our neighbor’s ATV. On both occasions we missed reaching the Holy Grail at the end of the trail: … [Read more...]
