Suburban Recovery

I know I should be posting about the ski trip but I couldn't let my lovely wife's attempt to park the car in the garage go un-commented.

Perhaps we should let the pictures tell the story:

Ended up ripping a 10cm gash in the tire wall. These are armored tires mind.

Adrian looks proud!

It's OK. Makes the 4x4 look more macho!

Oops! Yeah, it looks like Adrian is enjoying it a bit too much...

Also wondering, you have a window looking into the garage?

Fusion said...

Oh my bad, garage window looking out...

Oooooh NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

I did something similar with my musclecar once. In my defense, I was sick and not fully aware of it yet and I simply had no sense of equilibrium.

That'll teach you! Do it yourself, next time, honey.

That looks like something I would do. But with a much less expensive vehicle.

There is the somewhat boring vid of me lifting the car away from the wall with the high lift jack - usually problematic because they are unstable and can fall over - which is what I was depending on in this case to have the car fall away from the wall. Note (at 8 seconds to go) me thinking better of having the blade of a shovel flying around next to my head powered by a falling three tone vehicle and opting rather to dodge the thing as It comes off the lift.

Oh... no! I'd be in deep you know what if I did that to the Pathfinder wheels... your poor wife! And your poor pocket!
