Bowen, this is the tree I was telling you about last week. slid sideways down a hill, caught the tree mid slider (no damage), but the only way to go was forward. tree fit between the slider and tire. crunched the bedside, and then go stuck between the inside edge of the tire and the frame rail.

Thanks for the earlier advice, guys. For our first date we ended up going to her friend's bbq. Really wanted to go to a river bar she spoke about, but it didn't work out that way. Still fun, though.

So, a few things I've learned about LA:
- Extremely happy I have King Shocks and 4wd to be on these horrendous streets.
- The hwy is a used car lot. How do so many cars break down and get abandoned??
- Drivers won't let you in to exit, even when you have a blinker on, make eye-contact, and ask nicely.
This list will grow....

The horrendous streets is the answer to your second question. It's rough on a vehicle. And BR has better roads than where I'm from in Port Barre. Seen a car bottom out in a pot hole down my road..

To get cars to let you in carry a sawed of shotgun and they move over real quick

In all seriousness, when you want to get over and they aren't letting you, slowly start merging. Like you said, you have a lifted 4wd, I promise they will get out of your way. They don't want to get in a wreck just as bad as you don't. I know that sounds assholish but that's part of driving in louisiana now a days, you have to drive like an asshole to get anywhere.

As far as the cars on the side of the road, most of the cars you see probably were paid for with less money than it would cost to get it towed, so they leave it, till the state tows it.

^^ That's what I had to do! I wasn't in my truck (was a tiny Carolla), and two people wouldn't let me in before the exit so I forced it to many car horns.

Isn't there some sort of business to pick up these broken cars and resell them or something? lol Abandoned should mean something...

Well, Sundays and Mondays are what look to be my days off while here in NoLa, and I brought all my guns, so if anyone wants to offroad and shoot, please let me know.
