Re: Stuck with my work truck *OT*

last one, tracked vehicle to the rescue. And this is only one of the trails we must traverse to get to our field sites.

Re: Stuck with my work truck *OT*

Here's the background on the situation: I went out to the site fine, then got stuck coming back in our 7300 lb. six-pack truck (but at least it has 34 x 9 Super Swampers). I couldn't winch it out, having only one birch tree which was uprooted, so we had to come back next day with the track vehicle to pull it out. That's a lot of mud to wash off, and even more paperwork to fill out. But, who else gets stuck in the middle of the woods while doing their job?

Re: Stuck with my work truck *OT*

man that wasn't any mud. If that was my truck I would have fixed that with can of gas and a match. Then again it is a airforce truck, can't expect much from them. Fly Navy!!!

Wait a minute, thats a Pull-Pal in the back and an 8275 (150' of cable) on the front. Now exactly how stuck were you? Did you have a bottle jack? It doesn't look that stuck to me.
