So, as the title says - I'm stuck! I just got in the door a few minutes ago. It's odd walking into my driveway at 1 am.
Normally I'm driving the ranger buuut it's a 20 minute walk away.
I attempted this road.. again..
but this time all the snow is sticky and packed so i figured i had better luck.
They maintain the road only so far in the winter - then it's 4x4 from there.
I made it a little ways up the road, then got stuck backing up.
Normally I have a shovel on me but since I went to the movies tonight I decided it could stay home. Wrong decision.
I used the snow brush to get me out of the first situation..
Then it went from bad to worse.
I couldn't stay on the hard pack snow and kept sliding off into the soft sugary stuff..
I kept going back and fourth - a little further back each time - trying to pack a trail down..
I decided I had enough of a run packed to try and make it to the plowed section of the road.
(I'll be sure to post pics)
Anyway, as I'm backing up in 4lo trying to gain speed.. with my head out the window - a wild branch comes outta nowhere and takes my hat right off my head!! I had to laugh..
The laughin stopped quick when I realized I was way off the barely beaten path and rather buried.
I didn't have to second guess myself. I knew that when I went to putter in drive I was goin nowhere..
I got out - checked out the situation.. driver side is pretty buried.. I can't open my door all the way..
Decided to walk home - 2o minutes away..
I guess i'll be waitin' till tomorrow then take the quad up there with a shovel and go to work!
I had a fun time trying to get the truck outta that road tonight.. Getting stuck is an adventure all in it's own. I had a great walk home, even though it's freezing rain tonight.
When you get stuck and are away from your truck you get something in return...
A lot of unusual time to think to yourself that you don't normally have
Ok, so here's a series of pictures from beginning to end.. Sorry if everyone expected it to be more hardcore but hey... shoveling is shoveling
And yea, I sat there for awhile and wished that i had big tires and lift.. then snapped out of it and kept shoveling..
