Went Mudding Last Night

Zack(Morph) and myself decided to go do some wheeling behind the local wal-mart. That was fun until I got stuck in some clay behind target. Zack tried pulling me out and only buried himself as well. I was about two feet down. We eventually got me out, but Zack had to call a wrecker and bite the 50 dollar tow bill. He'll have pics up later this afternoon.

If he got stuck pullug you out it sounds like you should have a 50 tow bill.

I told him I'd pay half of his tow bill and forget about the ding he put in my truck with the shovel.

He'll have more pics up after five of his truck along with some video hopefully from the other trail that we hit up and didnt come close to getting stuck on. Damage was all accounted for and I lost my flag mount. That's it.

Well I have the remained of the photos waiting to be uploaded, I ran out of room on my account, so I have to delete some later, especially for the videos. And yeah, thanks for ruining the suprise Eric! :) The tow-truck guy was nice and wrote it up so that insurance would cover it, but I think I'll just eat it and learn the lesson. The Buckshots did great right up until I was resting on my frame... Dug real nice!

You know me, Mr. Money Bags...

I do need new tires, but I think in that stuff wider tires would have just made wider ruts. Zack has 33x12.5 and he was more stuck than I was.
