    Anybody up in the Eugene, OR area? I got my truck stuck and I need some assistance getting it out. :( I might have a friend who can get it out, but if things fall through I might need some more help. Please and thanks!

    It's back about 2.5 miles off panther creek rd. It's not a bad stick, just my buddie's and my tires don't have much tread left, we're running 33's, and it just snowed after a few days of rain. Uphill, road the loggers dug trenches in to stop people from going there. Got stuck in those coming back up. I'll keep you posted, we'll going to try to get them out in an hour or so. We might have to pick up a solenoid for my winch and some cable....;) Strange how getting stuck makes you want to upgrade your rig

    I guess the winch didn't work ?

    If it's not stuck bad like you said, have you tried a come-along or something else to get it moving ?

    Pics ? :D

    his truck didn't even want to start (it's been sitting for a while after he blew his old engine) and once we got it started, the alternator didn't charge the battery up, so there's no way it would power his winch. We'll probably try a come-along tomorrow if we can't get his truck going. My neighbor also has a winch, so it'll be out tomorrow. I don't have a digital camera, and I don't feel like driving for twenty miles to take a pic with my cell phone. I'll take one tomorrow though and see about posting it up

    ya, I hope to get out tomorrow, before someone f's-up our rigs. If we aren't out by noon, I'll try to post something on here. I hope we have them out before noon, but you know how these things go. I don't know when we'll be heading out either. Thanks for your help, I'll let you know asap.

    I didn't know the trail, and blindly (and stupidly :rolleyes: ) followed my friend down there. There wasn't room to turn around on the trail, so once I got there, I had to go to the bottom to get back out
