Only enough room going one direction

by jl333 on April 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This memoir was inspired by Ms.Killie. While off roading in the middle of the desert, we came to a section that was only wide enough for vehicles going in one direction. Out of the blue, our Toyota Club, was greeted by a Jeep Club going the opposite direction. That didn't stop the Jeeps. This particular Jeep decided he wasn't going to let that stop him. I took this shot from out front windshield. You can see that he is about to drive sideways on the slope...and yes, once he was passing, I could literally stick my hand out the window and touch his Jeep. His side mirrors were practically scraping the ground. This picture is before he drove on his side.
