Default Cleanest Miata ever. Portland.

Nary a curse word uttered. How very composed of you.

Also, I'd prop you for the birth analogy but I'm on the mobile app and I can't figure out how to.

Holy crap that's scary.

There's a corner similar to that on the way to my in laws. Had I not had my father-in-law in the car warning me that I was going way too fast, I might have done the same thing. Who the hell designs a road with a 90 degree corner like that?

Really common when you're around farmland. The "road designers" don't have a choice. They're tracing property lines.

<p>Similar thing happened to me recently. I chose to go straight off into the field instead of turn though. I might have been going a little faster.</p>

Probably the best move actually. You may very well have saved your grape.

I off-road all the time. Just drive straight off. Way better than trying to save it and digging in.
