Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...
I accidentally took mine 4 wheeling also.
I took the pooch out to run in the desert, plus I had a couple of things to do out there. I knew a T-storm was coming and wondered if I could beat it. The answer was NO!!!! I saw a dozen lightning bolts on the drive out. After a few minutes the thunder was getting real. We both get in and watch. I was wishing that I had some REO Speedwagon to help me ride the storm out. The nearest lightning strike was 500 feet. It hit the electric lines or a pole that I was near. I was under the protective "cone" so was okay.
The wind was howling and the rain pouring. It finally ended and I got out of the passengers side to walk to the other side. Mistake. The earth here is clay like. One step and I had 5 pounds of stuff stuck to my shoes. Leaving the area that we go it's a bit off camber. It was trying to slide into the ditch but I managed. The tires don't self clean that stuff. If there had been an issue I would have turned slightly and driven into the ditch at the correct angle.
Got home and left my shoes outside. I sprayed it down and got most of the gunk out. You know those areas at the bottom of the fender flairs and inner fender well that it takes 5 minutes of spraying to clean? I'm going to do what someone suggested a while back. Plant an herb garden in there so when I go camping I'll have some.
