Fourwheeling: DO NOT try this... well, anywhere!

I've done some fourwheeling... but, dude!

Why not?! That looks fun.

DJP said...

I'm picturing those words on your tombstone.

R-O, step away from the monster-truck!

Ricky Rickard said...

Two thoughts enter my head:

1.) That definitely looks like fun.

2.) My wife would kill me for even thinking about it.

The latter thought definitely wins out over the first. Still fun to watch.

It looks like fun, but I can't get my mind off "how much money did that truck cost that you are about to roll over."

Julie said...

Or the ones you rolled, before you got the footage of the successful attempts.

I know, I know, my chromosomes match, so I probably don't get it, but I'm thinking that in the contest between brain and testosterone, testosterone won.

Good Grief what next four wheeling up Mt. Everest? And btw if they do that Dan you can claim it was mentioned here at this blog first.

LOL. That happens frequently. I remember a guest speaker at work told me she had only come to pity men after she had to have some testosterone injections for medical reasons. She said she couldn't imagine having to suffer with that all of your life.

Julie said...

I laugh... and I shake my head.

I am the lone female in a house of males. Which is fine, for the most part. God knew I just wouldn't cope well with Barbie and all her little pink accessories. But there are moments...

Well, let's just say it's a balancing act. I'm trying not to squelch all their God-given masculinity, but also to restrain some of the impulsiveness. I hope I'm doing okay. They've all been in the ER at least once, and they would definitely respond like Riley.

I might as well show them the clip.

At least they can't drive yet.

Julie said...

I showed them, and I quote:

Oh! That is one neat trick!
Those are some cars!
That's straight up a vertical cliff!
Let's watch this again!
Oh yeah!
They're pretty good!
Either they're insane or they're magical!
WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS? YOU ARE THE COOLEST MOM IN THE WORLD!

So, Dan, thank you for this moment of cool mom-ness.

DJP said...

Maybe I should make that a motto.

Or I should hold a contest.

I've thought of "Ticking people off on six continents since 2004."

But "Key to Cool Momness" isn't bad, not bad at all.

Julie said...

Well, you know, we have to bask in these moments of warmth between a lifetime of being the voice of reason. :0)

So, here I am, the youngest of three children, with two older sisters... And I end up with the only daughter among the grandkids.

If I had 10 cents on the doller for what I've spent on Barbie stuff for my retirement fund it would be worth more than my retirement fund in todays market!

Being little Miss "Nature Freak", all I saw was a bunch of guys tearing up what may have been formerly nice places. Grrr.

Gilbert said...

Yeah, we had a bad accident a few summers ago in my community with a non-roped off display that was just asking for it. Let's just say that if it went even worse than it did, it would have taken out people AND a *train*.

Julie said...

Well, see, Mr. Squirrel,

You grew up surrounded by girls, and went on to enjoy playing dress up ;-)

But since you're a knight, (and presumably in shining armor, to Mrs. Squirrel), that all works out well.

ChosenClay said...

SWEET!

Where do I sign up?

Barbara said...

I was a brash, brazen ER nurse in a former life, and I remember very well what we called people who did stuff like that:

Organ Donors.

(Among other not-so-repeatable terms findable on a google search for "you might be an ER nurse if..." or "you might be a paramedic if...")

Rita Martinez said...

That is nuts!
I actually had an accident last year riding a fourwheel, but by God's grace nothing terrible happened...although minutes before I drove the fourwheel off of the road I thought of all the times my mom had mentioned people dying and snapping their necks riding one of these things...we practically flew off of the thing and landed on dirt..I sprained my wrist and scratched my face, that was about it...never riding one of those things ever again...

Daryl said...

Way cool!! What a ride.

My wife would not concur...
