!STUCK!

Wouldn't you know, the day after I took my camera out of the truck to get the film developed I would get a stuck worthy of a front page. The same hole I broke a u-joint and bent a control arm in two days earlier decided it hadn't inflicted nearly enough carnage to satisfy it's craving for destructing any intruders. Funny how I give a pile of mud a concience and a personality just to take the blame off of myself, huh. Well, this hole wasn't any ordinary mud bog. Long story short, the '98 Tahoe with 6" of lift and 35" Boggers was immediately swallowed up to the windows upon entering the brown hole. Lost a Bogger(broke a bead, fell off rim), a rear bumper(inexperienced buddy not knowing how to hook up a strap, and me not wanting to crawl out of the window to check his work), cracked rear diff. cover. Not to mention three other Chevy's which suffered trying to help. 2000 Chevy 2500 w/ 3" body lift and 36" BFG M/T's broke hitch. 1985 K5 w/ 40" Boggers, broke clutch and sheared a tooth in his 14 bolt. As well as another Chevy which still resides in the trap as I write. Finally got another buddy out of bed w/ a tow truck. After 9 1/2 hours, winched out in 5 minutes. Total bill after repairing truck today, $965.00.
Was it worth it? You're DAMN right it was. Keep wheelin', just don't forget the camera. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Man, I hope those buddies are still your buddies!

Perhaps you need to put a sign in front of the mud hole that reads "Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here... Oh, and Your Checking Account".

Re: !STUCK!

Man, that sucks. I'd feel real guilty if my buddy broke something trying to get me out.

Maybe it's time to put some tractor tires on the 'Hoe? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: !STUCK!

I aways keep a cmaera in the truck. Actually in the cab and not the tool box. I guess maybe in the cab is a better place if you cannot open the doors. A camera is good to get stuck photos but also handy in car accidents. Better luck next time.
