famous last words...."I think you can make it."

so last night i decided to take my friend out mudding. i looked at this one particular hole and told her "there is a good chance i will get stuck." and with that said she told me..... "you can make it. i am an angel and nothing bad happens to me."

so me being an idiot and trying to test the limits of my truck, mother nature told me how far i can go.

the driver side turned out to be under water and flooded the floor board. finally after spending 5 hours with a pressure cleaner, rags, and a shop vac i managed to turn my swimming pool back into my truck. and to my surprise she was right. she really is an angel because my truck is back the way it was with no damage. plus i have one awesome story to tell.

sorry for the bad pictures. pretty good for a camera phone.

the story is even better on how i got out.......

When we first got out there, there was a jeep stuck almost as good as me and the driver no where around. i was out with my four wheeler and when i got stuck i called my two buddies. one with a old 4x4 blazer and one with 4x4 mazda b3000.

I couldnt have been in a better location. thick mud front and back.

they tried hooking up to me from the front(my truck, the b3000 in the middle, and the blazer hooked up to him.the blazer got stuck and the b3000 stuck between the two of us and we had to cut a strap to free him up.

with all the noise the guy who owned the jeep came back and told us if we could get him out he would stick around and help. so with the atv and the b3000 we got him out and then the b3000, jeep and atv all hooked to my rear......the pulled me out.

almost all of us out at this point...... the blazer still needed help. so i was given the order to get him out at any cost.

""Click"".... 4Low

i yanked him so hard out of that hole the truck jumped out side ways and onto the grass.

last night was the worst place to be. there was almost no hope of anyone getting out but all in all it was a fun 4 hours of vehicals getting stuck and recovery.

You know you would have never pulled the K5 out if I didn't have her in 4low bashing the rev limiter's brains out.



Good to hear that there was no damage. Except my tow strap. RIP.
