    well, me, the school bus and alot of friends made the trip to pismo for labor day weekend, and while at comp hill, we took the bus for a ride aorund around comp, so Ofer(the driver/owner) tried to go up behind comp and come down on the top, we have done this before, but this time there were alot of trucks blocking the usual path, so we made a wrong turn and ended up in a bad place.

    heres a nice video of my attemp of pulling him out.
    http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4289236443

    another part to the story is that there was a group of people there to help, and one guy(knowitall) thought he should deflate the tires after we told him it wont hold the beed below 18psi, he kept saying trust me and we told him no, and ofcourse, he kept doing it, well onthe second pull one tire comes completely off the rim and the other pops the beed, and this guy suddenly dissapears. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif i had to leave sunday, and everyone stayed there today to get the tire fixed and another attempt to pull it out, well they got a towing company to do it, and before they got out they blow another beed. this all happened sunday.

    monday- they got the tires fixed and they got a towing company to pull them out, ofcourse, some lowlifes broke into the bus and took our stuff, but thats besides the point, they got the bus out of the one spot, but it blew 2 more tires, so it was still stuck last night.
    today- again the bus was broken into over night, and they screwed up a few things, im not sure on the specifics yet, but they got it running, and they pulled it out more, they actually got it completely free, but the tow truck blew a couple beeds also, but another tow truck winched them out and set them free.
    i thik if the beed did not blew the first time, i coulda gottem them out. this weekend was an adventure.

    Great video......I like the ATV that throttles up at about the same time you do........Sounds like your Tahoe has an ATV engine. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I think you might have gotten him out if he would have turned the wheels to the right instead of the left right at the end. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
