Four Wheels off the Ground

All of us were supposed to be going over this bump and getting a photo of four wheels off the ground.  Not me, I was stuck. That was the second incident. One wheel was up in the air about 4 feet and I was leaning on Hank but I had no choice.

Two husky guys had to push us to get us unstuck. I followed a cloud of dust and thought I was following the pack but I made a wrong turn and got lost. The path began to narrow and I knew I was going where I shouldn't have gone but there was no where to turn around. That was the first clue that something was wrong, I was lost. 

                      Dennis, Sandy, me and Hank

I made several turns and coming around the next corner were 10 four-wheelers following the leader coming right at me or rather I was coming right at them. I hit the brakes but it was too late - we had a head on collision.  It took another 15 minutes to get me moved over into the weeds so all the four wheelers could pass me and each gave us a love tap on the rear wheel.

Alberto said "follow me" so he brought us back to the others and we had a pit stop was in a river bed. Cold bottled water was there in a cooler and picture time.

Me and Alberto

Amazing tree roots had grow all over a large piece of granite rock.  It was fascinating.

Alberto had me change to a different dune buggy.  I could actually reach the gas peddle and the steering wheel moved easier.

These tree roots are amazing!!! You are really having a WILD time!! It is a wonder that you did not get hurt at all with the head-on.

Are you sure you didn't do this on purpose just so that you could cuddle up to Hank? Sounds like you had so much fun.
