Re: My life sucks Pt.2
Since we're talking about bad days, here's what I did today:
Me and my wheelin' buddy both got new trucks recently, I got a Heep with 33's, and he got a 4x4 Nissan pickup with like 30" tires. We went to a big dirt area with a couple of swampy areas that we've both sunk our stock zuks in. We both went through the one that swallowed the zuks without a problem.
The next logical step was to try something deeper [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], So, he went first in the Nissan and didn't make it. I pulled him back out and I tried it. I got stuck too [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], but pulled my truck back, took a different path and made it through. At this point, phillip just had to make it through. He took yet another path and hit some really soft stuff - frame rail on the ground with mud to the hubs on all four wheels.
Ok, I'll just pull him back out. All four of my tires were spinning and the truck didn't move. At this point, we had quite an audience - all of the guys riding four wheelers and dirt bikes had stopped to watch the show. Tried pulling forward and back several times, wouldn't move an inch. We started digging an putting rocks under the tires, still wouldn't move. Two more trucks showed up - an old landcruiser and a f150 4x4. We tried the ford truck, and still couldn't get out.
Three hours later, we hooked the jeep up to the front of the pickup and the Ford to the front of the Jeep. The 8 wheels working together finally had enought traction to pull out the Nissan.
I really wish I would have had a camera. I'll have to go back and take a pic of the ruts we made pulling it out [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] We were both covered in dirt and I bet that truck had 500lbs of mud stuck under it.
Anyway, that was my day. It was fun, but it sure was a lot of work [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
