stuck in a parking lot...

Well i wanted to take out my ranger and play in the snow, but phucking locks were frozen. So i took the jeep. We have about 5" or 6" of snow and this lot wasnt plowed all the way, I was crossing over the powed piles that were starting to drift. well i got high centerd on a 3 foot pile/drift and one of my friends pulled me off with his winter beater a 90's mercedes. haha he has video but i only got a pic. I also played around in the local quarry but no pics because it was around 10 degrees and i didnt feel like freezing my a s s off.
