I broke the cardinal rule!

Don't got Wheeling alone!

Myself and two buddies decided to hit some trails in east tx this weekend while in between deer hunting. One trail brought us down to the shoreline of Lake Richland Chambers. We followed the shoreline for a few mile and had absolutely no issues when all of a sudden my jeep fell into a sink hole and ther was Norway she was crawling out on her own. The high lift jack was not working properly, so we were screwed. After about 2 1/2 hrs of trying to get out, we somehow ran into the only near bye resident who happen to have a 4x4 truck and was able to pull us out. If it wasn't for him we would have been SOL. Lesson learned, boys and girls, never go wheeling alone.

Happy you got out and safe.

Sometimes it is more fun when you go at it alone. Kinda adds to the nerves feeling you get when you are about to do something risky.
I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
