Not the Best Way to Start a Day at the Beach

          Low tide.  About a half-mile from the beach access road—the closest people are more than 200 meters off—I swing a U-turn a bit too high off the wet-packed sand, intending to park facing the ocean.  Somewhere in that sentence there should have been a descriptive adverb...a 'stupidly' or at the very least a 'thoughtlessly'.

          I knew I was farged the moment I lost forward momentum, but we took a few minutes to insure it was so before calling a tow truck.  Twenty minutes later the guy hooked up, pulled me forward ten feet, and gave us the bill.  It cost slightly more than a dollar an inch.

          Is there a combo-adverb for extremely stupid and very costly?
