Ouch!!!!

So I went out yesterday to go run my dogs in the normal spot when I came upon some swampy grass land with some rutts through it. So me being the geniuss I am pull of the road and and get the front tires in the muddy rutts and looked out my window and saw the tires sinking in this nasty ****. So I try to back up the embankment and couldnt do that either. The truck ended up sideways paralell to the road burried up to the doors before I gave up; instead of perpendicular which would have been way easier to tow out! So I am sitting there trying to think what the f to do when the fish and wildlife cop came down the road and stopped to inform me that I was on corp of engineer's land and he could give me a ticket which he didn't thank god. He said he wouldnt tow me out and I had till the night time to get it out or he would site me! I had him call a tow truck to winch me out which in the process of him winching apparently got a rock stuck between the inside of the rim and the rotor or something which put a quarter sized hole in my rim which will not hold air! Not the happiest at the momment. 162 dollars for the tow and 112 for a new wheel which wont be here for 3-6 buisness days. oh yeah and I just found out that I dont have towing on my insurance policy! Dont have pics of the carrnaige being stuck but maybe I will get some aftermath pics!

No worries. I thought the tire just rolled a bead cuz i heard a pop the all the air gush out and with it being sidehill I figured that was what it was. At least I didnt f up the tire or snap an axle or something lol. The tires are double what the wheel is lol!

heres some of the rocks still in the wheel. They are about the size of an egg. they wont fit through the back cuz of the rotor which how it put a hole in the wheel so they went in through the holes on the front of the wheels!
