Whoops! (Driving Fails)
« on: September 20, 2017, 04:19:33 AM »
I just saw this on JeepinForJesus' Instagram and I thought it would be fun to start a thread and share some "whoops" or facepalm-worthy driving fails. I'll start with this Instagram post by JeepingForJesus:

But He (Jesus Christ) said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness."
Therefore
I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ's power may rest on me. -- 2 Corinthians 12:9

Guru told us to go at high speeds in sapang bato, decided to go for 30kph thinking it was fast enough... less than 10 meters into the trail, I found myself axle deep in the lahar. Had to get myself snatched out 😂 Lesson learned, "floor it and don't stop at soft spots."

I remember at one time, after being too busy with other hobbies, I went back to the 4x4 trails.

I forgot where this was specifically, but it's somewhere in Rizal.

I ended up in front of the pack. We had to cross a small stream. No biggie. But after crossing and climbing the bank I had to turn to a small clearing on the left side of the trail to let the others go ahead of me to let the lead vehicle return to the front.

Because this was my first time back after a while I've forgotten what our mentors from Delta Recon taught us about some of the cons of having IFS (I was using a Suzuki Vitara).

As the spotter was guiding me to the clearing on the left I had to try a few times to get up to that area. Revving, sudden bursts, and my steering wheel turned all the way to the left. See where this is going?

Then I heard a loud and metallic snap. After a couple of seconds of shock and wonder, I realized what happened. My CV joint broke  :-[ /facepalm

Had to limp my way for the rest of the ride, sometimes needing to be pulled uphill. But thank God for the air lockers, I was able to go through some of the other sections of the trail on my own...

 ;D ;D ;D
