    I was driving out to a family gathering today and the rain was coming down pretty steady. i had my son with me and the truck felt great in the rain, the brand new goodyear at/s's kept me glued to the road. Being that my son was back for winter break we have been tooling around and seeing family. here we are in Concord and we're early for this gathering so in a driving rain i go looking for some mud. i remembered this place near one of my accounts with a mud/gravel super wide shoulder off of Olivera rd near hwy 4. the shoulder backs up to a grassy field. so i pulled in and put her into 4H and tried like hell to get the goodyears to break loose in the gravel mud, i couldn't do it unless i threw her really hard into some turns (which i wasn't gonna do with my son in the car), so i spun all fours into the grassy field keeping em all spinning doing arcs in and out of the field. not satisfied, i put her back into 2wd and proceeded blaze some bad ass doughnuts in the gravel mud, throw roosters and mud everywhere. my son is laughing and iv'e got her roaring around, after about eight or ten doughnuts i let off knowing it's a fat ticket if a cop sees me but that was fun, show the young 'uns how it's done! Hope your Christmas was sweet, thanks TW, you guys are cool. [​IMG]

    Hope you were in that field legally. Property damage is no fun for anyone and gives all wheelers a bad name.

    Ah yes, the field is owned by a douchbag i used to work for so there is no love lost there, sorry there are no pics, i beat it out of there cuz i dont want a ticket for reckless driving and i was doing doughnuts in cars LONG before sideshow videos came out, and yessiree, i would never want to do anything to give wheelers a bad name. a couple of guys drove by in an old toyo 4x4 right as i slid to a stop and were looking at us as they drove by. There are not of places out here that you can go to get your mud on, i'm not into wrecking anyone's property at all.

    "show the young 'uns how it's done!" Good, I like that, my Dad would have never showed me something like that, but I am trying to show mine..., along with the usual cautionary tales of course, but I'm trying to show them all I can.

    lol yeah i couldn't tell him a lot of the stuff i did and friends and family were sworn to secrecy because i didn't want him to go out and try to top it like i did to my dad, i committed multiple felonies before i was 18, but we live and learn don't we? i wouldnt have this nice ass truck and a nice pad if i hadn't straightened my shit out eventually, lucky for me and his mom, he's a good kid in college now (except for last nite when he got drunk and threw up on my leather couch!!!), i told him about all the pitfalls but he is his father's son and i figured he would have to go find out on his own :eek:i am laughing at him today, he looks like he got hit by a truck!!! LMAO!

    The easiest way to get out of ticket for doing donuts is to give the cop some donuts.
