Wife said..."You're not going thru the ditch are you?" Duh...thought hadn't even crossed my mind 'til she said something!!:angry: So that's like saying "honey...let's go thru the ditch instead of the driveway...we have groceries in the back along with the kids...but it'll be fun!"
Here's the G-dam results... took 4 hrs.!:guns:yow!

By the way,
dont feel bad. We got about 5 inches of snow yesterday, and my buddy got his 4x4 stuck.
Called me up, says, can you come pull me out? Ok.
So I go to his house, and no truck. I ask, Where is the truck?
In the back yard!!!!!!!
Down a hill, with 5 inches of snow, and soft wet grass underneath.:eek:
Never did tell me how he got there:dizzy:

Took 4 different trucks. 1st a 3/4 ton chevy... then 1/2 ton Ford(knew IT couldn't pull me out!)...Then a BRAND NEW Allis-Chalmers farm tractor. None of those worked, so I had to suck in my pride and call my buddy with the ONLY wrecker in town. HE was busy...that's why it took 4 hrs.

Sorry, Repo Man, but couldn't help laughing thinking of you "gonna show the wife how it's done". But that's mainly cause it wasn't me out there with the shovel and it wasn't MY wife saying "I TOLD YOU" (this time, anyway).:waving: :drinkup:

One thing I still can't figure out, What's with the HANDICAP Permit hanging from the mirror?

Just to satisfy curiosity... it is for my daughter that has a 93* curve, and a titanium rod in her back from scoliosous (sp) from birth. She's lucky to walk 25' without her back hurting. THAT'S why I have a handicap placard.
BTW...sorry you felt you had to "figure it out." Yes I'm VERY touchy when it comes to my personal life like that.

My son went camping with a buddy last summer and the boys decided the other side of the creek looked like a better spot. The Chevy got stuck, the Blazer (my son) tried to pull him out and slid it off the road. They tried first with a Dodge diesel, no good. Then hitched a Chevy to the Dodge, still no good. The a Ford F150 to the Chevy and the Dodge, Bingo!

I don't mean to sound like a monday morning quarterback, but did you try using a come-along? Seems like that might have worked. I know what you're talking about though, when someone says "I wouldn't do that if I were you" they might as well be saying [B]Do It Man![B] Reminds me of the time we rented a car to drive to the Miami Grand Prix back in my youth. The windshield washer quirted off to the left about six feet. Well, after the race, driving through stop and go traffic we came upon a Miami-Dade motorcycle cop directing traffic. The guy in the back seat must have been reading my mind and said "I wouldn't do it if I were you". You know the rest. It wasn't pretty. Turns out, cuban miami motorcycle cops have no sense of humor. One of the hard lessons I learned in my youth.

MOJOB Love it. I did the same to Detroit PD. Didn't have the same out come though. He was a white guy so he didn't think I was profiling him. He joked with me while we were in the jam for a minute. It was damn funny though.

I'm truly amazed that a new Allis-Chalmers tractor could not pull you out. It must have been a pretty small tractor, because those things can usually pull anything!

NOT the same ditch! The one LAST year was ACROSS the road! Next will probably be Lake Huron during Ice fishing season! (NOT!)

I was in St Louis many years ago and had been on the hwy stopped for 5 hours in a snowbound traffic jam. 12 inches of snow. Truckers kept going over a hill and jack knifing.
There were 2 guys in a regular compact car in front of me and it was dark by now. I could see they were laughing because my lights showin in their car. They just decided to make a right turn off into the snow bank and into a ditch. Nowhere to go except woods. Traffic had started moving at that point!! They were doomed to waite for a wrecker. I just cant figure out why they would do that
Here's your sign:dizzy: :alien:

So this question doesn't get repeated AGAIN...read my thread..."For the guys only..very important." Maybe then you'll see WHY I don't have a tow truck...and NO...I don't HAVE to have a tow truck.

Hey RepoMan. The truck looks like it fared pretty well. I did a similar trick in my wifes Lightning while passing through a DesMoines snow storm. Hit a patch of ice, the posi spun me off track and down into the median. I was relieved to see that I was going into the median instead of down the steep outer edge of the road. About halfway down the ditch, my wife woke up screaming, looking out the windshield at a white out as the snow was coming up over the windshield. It had been blowing real hard and I wound up on an area where it was blown almost clean to the grass. I almost made it all the way up the incline on the opposite side the ditch. I think I even had one front tire back up on the gravel shoulder, then it slowly slid back to the bottom of the ditch. I'm glad the wife was sleeping at the beginning of it. It gave me a split second to think and react without being distracted by the screams.

Therefore, my belief is that if you just had a little more speed going in you might have mad it out...:D . If you're not already, you'll soon be looking back and laughing about it.

p.s. still got you in my prayers.
