    Well, the title states it all pretty much, went out to chek to see how the snow was just a bit east of where i live. came off a hill that was a bit deeper than it looked (shouldnt have taken it at face value). ended up buried pretty bad.

    Well in the process of trying to unstick myself, i used my old high lift to get some wood under my fron tires. It malfunctioned and the bar bashed my right on my nose. Not broken, but badly banged up.

    The point of this thread i guess is dont go places that you arent sure you can get out of.. and watch out for older equipment. Doesnt seem to matter when they want to fail...
