bed of snow and fat guys

learned a lesson today 1st being a bed full of snow is very heavy second 3 200 pound guys and a 350 pound guy are very heavy add them together and a fx4 looks like a stx plus all that weight and a step hill are not good

heres the store me and a few friends got bored today and headed up to my dads for some offroading well he wasnt there and the gate was locked so we headed up the road to glennville and picked up my buddy dustin , then we went to check out this house he was building way up in the mountins were there was lots of snow now me being your tipical californian went crazy at the site of snow so i had to try a snow covered hill not good i got stuck luckly got out then i got a idea take snow to my buddys kids in bakersfield so we loaded up the bed till it locked like i had a white cover on it then headed down the mountain and noticed hmmmm im not stoping so i had to put it in 1st to ride down the mountain sorry for the long story sorry no pics

Probably too much weight; too much snow, too many people, too steep a hill=failing brakes :)
