We came upon this vein of a brilliant blue mineral. Due to the large amount of petrified "wood" in the surrounding area we figured it had to be high grade, free range Viagra.

One of my favorites. I have pondered this "engine, unit #61" for hours. It has provisions for driving a water pump, air compressor, generator and who knows what else off the bell housing end (missing).

Of course what is stranger than building a houseboat in a cave in the middle of the desert.




A lapidary rock tumbler made from an old rear does not even come close.

I guess if your into lapidary work and building a houseboat, your going to need water, so you got to make yourself a water pump......in a cave.

Very few people know anything about vehicles anymore. It still amazes me the amount of people that seem to know about vehicles and don't realize that 4WD really isn't even 4wd. haha

What's funny is listening to your 9yo son explain to a guy why his 4wd doesn't spin all 4 wheels. lol

Two instances come to mind.....

First was a few years ago while doing a trail called Crown King Trail here in AZ. We came around a corner and there was this truck pulled off the side of the trail and two people holding up a very large woman in a squatted position while she shat on the side of the trail. My eyes will never be the same again.

Second was at the sand dunes Thanksgiving weekend. There was a bunch of Jeeps racing the hill and this guy with a stretched wheelbase Jeep, fiberglass body, and huge HP rolls up to challenge another Jeep. They race and this guy in the fancy Jeep gets beat. He proceeds to roll down the hill, pull up to an open area behind our group, get out, take a gas can and empty it inside the Jeep, take off his wedding ring and threw it in the Jeep, and threw a match at it. Craziest shit I've ever seen. He ended up getting arrested and charged with the cleanup costs.

I was out on my ATV back in March in the hills near my house. I was with a couple buddies and we were going to go hike a natural arch. It started snowing while we were riding and decided to not hike since we couldn't really see and the rocks were pretty slick. So we decided to drive around the forest roads. We came up on a mid 90's S-10 Blazer buried in the snow. The kids had spent the night there with no gear. They had cell service, but my guess is they didn't want to call anyone since they were most likely doing some drugs based on how they were acting. We rode the ATV's back out to get my tacoma and my buddies truck. Ended up spending a good 2 hours getting them unstuck and back out to the main forest road. One of the kids parents were there and when we got back to the ATV trailers, the kids just took off. Never said thanks or nothing. They even told us that the local towing place quoted them $2000 to come get them out.
At least the parents bought us a couple beers and a burger at the bar in town. They were real lucky that my buddies and I were out there that day!

With the elevation difference from where we were and the highest switchback, I couldn't tell what kind of vehicle was tumbling end over end down the side of the mountain. I initially thought it was a old/small/early Jeep, but it turned out to be an ATV. It tumbled for several hundred yards and was little more than a parts pile when it came to a stop. The rider bailed the moment he realized he was moving too fast to make the turn/switchback (which was very tight; only very SWB vehicles could make it without backing up at all) and tumbled for about 15 yards. Luckily he didn't break anything on himself, but had a bunch of scratches with one being possibly stitches-worthy. Two vehicles in our group helped them out; a truck hauled out the mangled pile that was the ATV and the other vehicle was owned by a doctor, so he went with them to ensure they reached civilization.

Sadly, this kid was a friend of the family who owned the ATVs (there were three or four ATVs total), and the adult woman of that family was losing her mind over the trashed ATV versus giving a damn about the injured kid. A couple of folks in our group were ready to take her out back and set her straight, if you know what I mean. She was miserable.

None of the ATV riders were wearing helmets. Fortunately that kid didn't slam his head into anything.

I dug some ice out of my cooler, gave the mom a box of kleenex and got them all in the bed of my truck (no room in the cab) and took them down to their ranch. We were getting everyone unloaded and the dad took off to check on the stupid UTV...didn't even ask how badly any one was hurt! I made the lady promise me that she would take the boy to the hospital and get him checked out since he whacked his head pretty good. Could have been so much worse...
I'm a big fan of helmets - I wrecked a 4 wheeler when I was a kid and ended up with my head pinned between one of the tires and the road. I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a helmet on that day. I was freakin sore for weeks but only bumps and bruises. Still have that helmet with the tire mark on one side and road rash on the other.
over the years of riding dirt bikes, 4 wheelers and utvs. I know 1st hand what can happen without a helmet or even with one on. i have had to get 6 stitches by my right temple after flipping a utv in snow at 5mph(yes 5 fucking MPH) buddy was driving and we started to turn and it just started sliding/drifting hit a rock and plopped on itís side. I busted my head open on the cage and also ended up with a light concussion.

I have flipped atvs on top of me, been thrown over the bars and ran over. i have also cracked 2 snell rated helmets all the way thru the foam, Got light/medium concussions from both those crashes.


only time i donít wear one is when doing yard work.
