How did you get so stuck? Where you just sitting there spinning?

Well some more snow if falling, I wanna go out again into the bush but nobody is around. Maybe I won't get stuck this time. I am gonna go find out!

I dunno, I can get stuck with like 3 inches of snow out there but I went out with a friend today into a unplowed parking lot and he showed me a few ways of getting it. He basically told me to get stuck, so I did and then he told me what I should be doing. Basically, I would just put the gas to the floor until I got out, he told me just to creep out and kind of try to read the snow, and blah blah blah, well basically every time I got stuck that time, I could get out or I wouldn't even get stuck at all. Then we came to where I live and I had 3-4 foot drifts in one driveway and I went through it no problem. I am learning though. I didn't think there was anything to learn really when getting stuck.

Judging by the lack of snow you must be in lower Ontario. Where I'm at here in da 'You Pee' even in the second week of March the snow is too deep to go playing in off road. Cripes, the ice on our lakes is around 3ft deep. If I was to play, that is where I would go, and I do... on my quad.
