    "Damn, you are f@#king stuck." /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
    Yeesh, just spent 8 of the most nerve-wracking hours of my life trying to free my Blazer from then clutches of the quicksand like soup. Thought for awhile I may have to abandon ship. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Hi lift couldn't do it. Bronco II was useless. Couple yahoos in F150's strapped together barely budged me. AAA wanted no part of it. It took the Powerstroke wrecker (yikes the 4th Ford /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif) with a snatch block to pluck me out. Oh brother, it's been one helluva day. Well, I had to tell someone about it /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. Now if you'll excuse me, I've been up since 4 for work and its 1:30 am now. *falls asleep on keyboard*
    Thank you and goodnight. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I used to get my 1 ton sub with 44s so stuck my buddie with his 40K winch moaned almost as loud as the winch cable. He always complained I needed to get something lighter to wheel /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif.

    I don't have pics of my brand new front 35's buried, or my bumper on the ground, but I'll get some of the aftermath. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I didn't have the camera because I was just checking the place out. The ground didn't even look that wet. (Turns out if you drop a length of chain on the ground, it'll jiggle /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)Beware the Milford NH powerline trail!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    May not look like much to some of you guys, but the truck only moved about 3 feet to get that dirty.

    I think I'd feel guilty if I showed someone that one, there's a decent chance that they will lose their truck in it. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif One of the guys that tried to pull me out said he knows someone with Rockwells and 52's that didn't think that he could make it across. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    Edit- There is a pretty cool trail in Brookline I can show you though
