Powerline flex and a nice stuck

Went wheelin at the powerlines today. I actually had my camera this time
Here's a few flex shots and a stuck...

Yes, that is a Fedex in the background

I can climb the hill in the background






Not bad for stock... Here's that stuck I was talking about

(Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic here, all I have)

Man, I love the power line roads here, but they closed them all off :(

Looks like you had fun though. What pulled you out of the stuck?

Well my friend with a Dodge made it a few days before. It had dried up a bit so I figured I'd make it, 10 more feet and I would've, but I slid off a log into a deep rut as you can see..

I knew it was deep less than a foot off to my passenger tire. My drivers side tire hit a log and slid off it, causing me to go sideways, lol

you'll have the foam under the vinyl if it's like mine.
Almost everytime I get stuck it is because of a deep rut that I know is there so I straddle it but a log or something that I can't see gets me to slide into the rut. This weekend I hit a cut off tree stump under water and stopped me right there. Thankfully I was able to back up off of it and not get the hilift out.

I'm in Cocoa Beach, so like 30 minutes away from Cocoa. Most of my friends and I wheel out by Canaveral Groves though. That's right off Grissom behind the Fedex.
