    Got a little spring fever today. The big log in the backgroung has been bugging me for the last 8 months. Thought I would push it down into the ditch behind with my plow blade....DUMB MOVE! After pushing it about 10 feet I sank up to my hubs in nacho cheese consistancy mud. The plow wedged all the way up taking the weight of the truck. Even though my rear wheels were on pavement I had no traction. Had to crawl through the mud pull the plow and HiLift it enough(check out how much of the jack sank in the mud!)to get some blocks under the wheels. Major suckage!

    I would have burried 38"s in that crap. That cinder block you see is really 3 stacked on top of each other. I just kept pushing them down till I hit something solid.

    I did a really dumb one a couple of weeks ago.

    When I'm not mudding I HATE to get stuck. If I go out with the intention that hey, I might get stuck while having fun then thats OK.

    We went for a little drive as a family. My father-in-law finaly came with us which he has never done before. We were definatly not going mudding.

    I was raised on a ranch, and I usually have pretty good sense about these thing. I haven't gotten stuck in over 15 years when I was trying not to.

    As luck would have it I got 50 feet off the payment (maybe not even that) before getting REALLY stuck. It took a 4 wheel drive tractor, and a backhole over 3 hours to get me out.

    This was an area where I was born and raised. This is evidently a VERY bad place that everyone just stayes away from this time of year. For some reason this bit of knowlege had escaped me and I had no idea.

    I know now... :)

    Thank God for the highlift!....Every other truck I own are all parked at my shop a few miles away. Would have looked pretty stupid walking across town covered in mud to go get something to pull me out of my own driveway.
