I tried to rain on your parade... but I mist.

 This reminds me of one of the first off road trips I ever did in my Jeep.  

See, there's a series of roads in the NJ Pine Barrens, they're fire trails to allow the trucks to get back there to put out the summer fires that happen.  People have a nasty habit of not putting out camp fires of course.

I was out there in an open area in my old CJ7, just hooning around and enjoying the time when I managed to get the Jeep stuck. 

Solid ground, no mud, packed earth field.

So how did I do it?  Yours truly managed to get the most capable off road vehicle stuck by getting the transfer case stuck on a rock.   Yes, the entire car was suspended in mid air. 

Not very bright, Bill.

Look at the window. There's an old ghost's face there!!!!!!!

Two guys left the bar after a long night of drinking, jumped in the car and started it up.
After a couple of minutes, an old man appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly.

The passenger screamed "Look at the window. There's an old ghost's face there!"

The driver speed up, but the old man's face stayed in the window.

The passenger rolled his window down part way and, scared out of his wits, said "What do you want?"
The old man softly replied "You got any tobacco?"

The passenger handed the old man a cigarette and yelled "Step on it" to the driver, rolling up the window in terror.

A few minutes later they calmed down and started laughing again.

The driver said "I don't know what happened, but don't worry; the speedometer says we're doing 80 now".

All of a sudden there was a light tapping on the window and the old man reappeared.

"There he is again!" the passenger yelled.
He rolled down the window and shakily said "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asked.
The passenger threw a lighter out the window saying "Step on it!"

They were driving about 100mph, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden there came some more tapping.

"Oh my God! He's back!"

The passenger rolled down the window and screamed in stark terror "WHAT NOW?"
The old man gently replied "You want some help getting out of the mud?"
