Found an awesome offroad place today but I didn't have permission to be there. Stupid snowdrifts! ;)

I was driving to work this morning at 0600 from Huntington to the Fort through the country. Roads weren't horrible and I felt safe enough going 45-50mph. I felt safe until a came up to a 2-3' snowdrift that covered 3/4 of the road. My right front tire grabbed the drift and my TJ went sideway. I managed to gas enough to clear a mailbox but couldn't save it in time for the ditch. Plowed through a 4' deep snow covered ditch sideways on two wheels with snow covering the entire Jeep. Not wanting to get stuck in a ditch or a field (especially in a Jeep) I gassed hard and came up out of the ditch a little airborne and into a corn field. Kept my foot in the gas enough to keep motoring through the sideways corn rows, bouncing all over the place until I turned into the rows and smoothed out. Taking a breath finally and checking my drawers, I drove about 500 feet looking for a place to get back on the road until a fence row appeared in front of me. Now or never...back through the ditch hard and onto the road. Fun times!

Luckily it was early enough that there were no other cars on the road, and luckily other than the near miss on a mailbox and a telephone pole there was nothing to hit like a fence or tree. :)
