My sami got me stranded today!

I was stranded.

It started off by me trying to take my sami to the front end shop today. Wanted king pin bearings installed, and tow set on the front end.

Our new race shop isnt set up yet, and the field behind the shop is still overgrown with high grass. I backed up to the trailer, and where we had some of our stock cars parked, it was easier to just circle the field to approach the trailer with the sami. Nothing fancy, just 2 wheel drive, open dif, and idle around and up on the trailer, didnt even use the ramps.

Got the sami to the front end shop, and unloaded, and back out to the shop to unload the trailer. It was going to be a pita to try to back the trailer back in where it belonged, so i just drove in fowards, and in the same tracks thru the field that I had idled the sami in 2 wheel drive, i circled my 1/2 ford van and trailer. Made it about 150 feet and sunk to my axle. 4 hours later, sunburnt, cussing, and 2 broken shovels, I finally gave up on getting the van out, and called a friend with a 4x4 chevy dually diesel to come jerk me out of the field. Even after unhooking the trailer, no way was that van coming out.

Needless to say, I slung mud for over 5 miles on half flat tires heading down the road after that little venture today. 1 hour late to work...... The zuk made the field look so easy that I never expected the van to sink that deep. Therefore, I blame the zuk, not my stupidity LOL

Re: My sami got me stranded today!

I ended up just climbing in the back of the van on the couch and taking a nap waiting on my friends wife to get there with their 4x4. Been a long time since ive got something stuck. Not that im a good driver, just that I pick my spots very carefully LOL. I cant believe how easily the zuk idled thru that tall grass, and had NO idea that it was that muddy or soft out there.
