Re: Best Stuck or Unstuck story
OK, here's mine. Recent too. On Monday night, about 11:15 PM, I was out with a friend riding the backwoods trails. Since there wasn't much light, I couldn't see the small water pools near the trail. Anyway, I was doing about 10-12mph over a small bump when my Dodge diesel just stopped. Couldn't move forward or back. (I was in 4wd.)
Got out, and wouldn't ya know: I had found a water/mud pit the hard way. The entire front axle was buried, both lower control (locating) arms were sunk, and the rear duals were sinking fast. (So were my legs and shoes!!) Called my sister, who came out in her [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Toyoda Seqouia to pull me out. She found water/mud hole #2.

All told, it took 6 hours to get us both out. And $375. And about 20,750lbs of force to winch me out. They sent the tractor (rig) wrecker, which also got stuck. (That's why they only charged me for 3 of those hours!!)
So by 8:30 AM, we were on our way home.
My boss was pissed when I got to work @ 12:45 PM. Supposed to be at work at 7:30 AM! (I called, so I still have a job.)I think I'll leave the Dodge at home next time! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
