    I haven't really done anything scary in the taco. This is probably the worst just because I had never tried this hill before.

    Scariest experience driving happened 3 months after I got my provisional license. I still had my old '83 full size bronco and I was at my friends house for the night because we were going to go snowboarding the next day up in Santa Fe. Well Albuquerque got dumped on with 18" of snow that night so driving about 70 miles up there was out of the question. When I was driving home (about 3 miles) I had it in 4hi the whole way and I stupidly decided to try and drift a little on the ditch (I was making fresh tracks in the snow so no cars around) and did a full 180 and got about 1' from driving right into the 10' deep ditch. Not fun lol. I drove very careful the rest of the way.

    Here's a pic from that record storm:

    I just had an unexpected event on dry pavement and I was not even screwing around: I was sitting at a light to make a left turn. When the light turned green, I didn't accelerate hard, but used a light amount of pedal pressure since I know that this truck's tail will slide out under even moderately hard acceleration. While accerlating, I drove my front left front corner into a known paved 'undulation' (effectively pavement that has sank lower but not turned into a pothole) on the road in the turn, and by doing so the rear began to slide/swerve outwards to the right. The various VSC systems all kicked in and prevented the truck from sliding further to the right and helped straighten me out as I naturally counter steered the steering wheel right wards to finish the turn.

    I would say my speed was only 3-8 mph at that point, and its the same way I make this turn every day, although I usually try to avoid this paved 'undulation' in the road. You can really feel a car or truck weight shift when you drive through this stupid thing making a turn. The roads around me are being proactively treated with that brine salt spray, but the roads are all dry right now. This brine (and dried salt for that matter) reduce the road friction somewhat, but I wouldn't expect it to be by much.

    I'm just upset about it because I don't deliberately drive like that in the morning while making my commute.

    Im getting there......
    Driving to dia (airport) from fort collins colorado (on the I-25 for those who know it) I was driving if 4hi as it was snowing pretty well and the interstate was not plowed (had an hour and a half to make my flight and about 45 minutes of driving still decided to cruise around 65-70 on packed snow. The truck was doing well and I the road seemed ok so I decided to switch off the 4x4......got slight corner and slowed down a bit. Then punched it (in rear-wheel drive) out of the corner spun around about 5 times ended up backwards in the center of the road (lucky there were no other cars around). Sat their trying to calm myself and my passenger (she was flipping her shit).....and then a big group of cars that I had passed going a more reasonable speed for the weather passed (if only i knew what they were thinking):D

    I hit black ice and did a wild 360 on US2 headed toward Stevens Pass a couple months ago. I spun into the oncoming lane and narrowly missed a car. We were facing the same direction when we passed each other - but I was doing about 45-50mph backwards! Time slowed down in my head as I waited for the ass end of my truck to smash the guard rail. I hit the brakes which somehow spun me back into my lane and finally the truck came to a stop. The engine had died and my dash lights looked like a X-mas tree. I put it in Park, fired it back up, and continued on - albeit super freaked out.

    I have had 3 - 60lb. sand bags in the back of the truck since then.

    Driving along at night going about 60 on a rough road came to a part where there was some small whoops. Came across a big one that looked small, the whole truck preloaded and jumped alittle off the ground, smooth landing but I was freaking out.

    lol did that in my bronco. The landing made the drivers side window fall down. No suspension damage though, that thing was a tank.

    was following a guy in a toyota pickup up a rural highway. he was a good distance ahead of me. we were both doing 60. came around the next corner. no signal. no brake lights. he was just stopped in the middle of the highway. hit my brakes but soon realized i wasnt going to stop in time. bombed it up the bank. sure got my heart racing

    it was raining and I was comming into a left turn at about 20, the light turned yellow and I was 80 yards away, so I punched it just a little to make the light. drifted the turn, then over corrected and started drifting the other way now facing the side walk and turned the wheel back to the left to turn away from the side walk and then spun and did a 180 hitting my rear driver side wheel on the median and bending my axel

    Jake (Kyoto) and I had a moment like this up at Chiva. It didnt look to bad until we got the truck up there and had to make like a 10 point turn on multiple shelf area and the trucks were teetering and on the edge of slipping off the edge of one shelf and possibly going over.

    Not in my Tacoma but young, dumb and full of cum in my 86 yota. SAS w/ 14" chevy springs running 39 boggers, driving around a curve in the a.m. and it started to rain. The ass end slipped out, went to correct a little and she slide to the side of the road and hit a burm at the cane field and completely flipped. Me not wearing my seatbelt so the first thing to hit was my shoulder out the driver window then the truck followed. Ended up on the top, crawled out the pass. window, my crack head cousin rolled up on a dirt bike and made off with my cigs. A whole cooler full of beer scattered everywhere. Then my mom went and hid my other car to stop me from driving.


    I always wear my seat belt now
