Craig Williams, I salute you. You are man enough to try to admit to and explain your actions, even though you can’t really explain why you did what you did.
I can’t find it in myself to condemn your actions—indeed a part of me rejoices that there are still people out there in this benighted country willing to take the risk to do such things. Although there will be expense and some danger in retrieving your 4×4, no-one was actually hurt in this escapade. I think you will take your punishment on the chin, and may your impulsiveness continue!
