Reverse doughnuts anyone? lol

Be careful out there!! Its not fun when you introduce Mr. Fender to Ms. Guardrail. They really don't get along too well. Don't ask me how I know.

Kinda funny how that really big snow bank looks just like an Intrepid.

I am just a few minutes south of Nekoosa, just south of Necedah too.Not that far from you at all! My son took the SXT to the car wash today and was pulling into the drive way just when it started to snow, so it went straight in the garage.

I did something stupid today, lol

I was driving and the snow was reaching the bumper, so decide to do a 3 point turn, and go back. Butttt, I forgot the ditch to the left of the road, so I slowly (2 to 5mph) turn left, and... I long story short, I end up down the ditch. There was no damage, but it took over a hour to get out, talking to insurance and the tow company. The back right wheel was completely off the ground.

My Intrepid, now a muddy mess, is sitting in the garage :P Im thankful nothing got damaged.

You should have seen mine after I got it stuck in my driveway. Yup, you read it right. I didn't get enough momentum backing up and well, the rest was history.
