    This is the show where Mike worked with getting the Hummer and trucks out of mud! It had a good segment about getting them out.
    It is on the discovery Channel now in case anyone is interested.

    Mike Rowe joins forces with the United Sates Army to celebrate his 100th dirty job in this two-hour special. Mike takes a look back at ninety-nine dirty and fascinating jobs and shares stories from behind the scenes, funniest moments, never seen before footage and bloopers. For his 100th dirty job, the Army will test Mike's mental and physical agility as he rescues a Humvee from the bottom of a filthy swamp. It's a dirty job that will have Mike up to his neck in mud, literally!

    Mike got a workout - that is neat how they pulled out the hummer (A little too much math, rope, pullies & thinking involved :rolleyes: ) but still interesting. Thanks for the heads up..

    Actually YES TECH it dealt with the correct way to get a vehicle out of the mud and how to use blocks and pulleys to maximize the force. Watch and listen sweet pea!
