Too many people are too fast to blame their autos instead of their handling skills on their "misfortunes". While I am not bragging, I have gone many places in my 2WD vehicle that "4-Wheelers" were stuck in. I have even passed by angry 4-wheelers that were stuck in the mud/snow. A few have even suggested that I have had incestious relationships with my Mother when I have offered assistance. -- A question is better debated and left unanswered than a question that is answered without debate. -Unknown
