Playing in the Snow! Someone got stuck.

So last night we were predicted to have 3-5 inches of snow and then it was supposed to get windy and drift. Well what we got was like 2" maybe 3". Me and David (ranger_guy15) decided to go out and play anyways....

Less then a mile down the "road" David decided that he was having too much fun on the road and decided the ditch would be funner. Well after we found out that he didn't have any rear recovery points we decided to try and dig him out. After about 30 minutes in the freezing cold, we gave up on digging, found a random hole in the fame and hooked the tow strap to it and pulled him out. Popped right out.

Oh and David look in the classifieds theres a hitch in monominie for cheap.

And then theres this little area way back in there, there isnt a road back to it, its just a trail. There are very old "No Tresspassing, Private Property" signs but I know 100% for sure that it is on public land. I think at one time it was private property but is now owned by the state. Its like someones junk yard back there. Theres a bunch of old burned out cars and junk back there. Its pretty cool.

Old burned out Chevy compact truck.

Haha yea lets just say that bend in the road was a lot more slippery than I thought. My first offical stuck in that truck! That little path that led to the burned out vehicles was pretty neat. I think if our trucks were any wider we'd have trouble getting through that path.

Really? I guessing it was a chevy by the square wheel wells. I dunno. I was out there last summer and I thought I saw a emblem or something that said mazda but then I looked at the square wheel wells, and thought it HAD to be a chebby.

Yep, it's a yota.

That front bumper, I just got done replacing on my buddy's 4runner a month ago, the front support is a Yota and the cab and doors scream yota.
