Wet road. Just lost control. Slid into the ditch and rolled over completely. Walked away fine. RIP Ranger. She started up and backed out of the ditch. Tough old girl.

Probably. 40 in a 50 didnt seem bad. I guess i should have been more aware. All in the past now. No point saying what i should have done. Im ok which is what matters. Live and learn.

not sure. Im quite sure its totaled. It could have come out much worse though. If i can get the roof good i thought about slapping a windshield in it and finding some junkyard fenders and driving it. No frame damage. If not, i am looking for a farm truck and i may have just found it. Well see how it plays out.
