help in sw Portland

Anybody with a winch around sw Portland? Sister got my jeep stuck in a neighbors yard. Pretty incredible. I'll post details/pics later this afternoon.

That's pretty interesting. I am downtown Portland with a winch, but I won't be available until this afternoon.

You can't back that out? Let me know if you don't get somebody soon. I can come out and lend a hand this afternoon.

I'll be home around 5 today. If you have the time, with a quick tug, I should be out in a minute.

Hard to tell from the video, the Jeep went over a pseudo rock wall. It's some large stones in the dirt, no cement or mortar. I don't want to tear up their yard in 4lo. If I could get pulled back up on to the stones a bit, I could get out of the bush and then go forward and out of the driveway.

Couple details...

It was left with the parking brake not stomped to the floor and left in neutral.

It veered left and into the neighbors yard, across the street one house down.

In the middle of this yard was a leafless tree atop a mound the pushed my Jeep slightly to the right, diverting it's path away from another tree.

As it passed over the mound, it narrowly avoided a thick branch that would have caused serious damage to the windshield. It can be seen in the early part of the video, but as I walked towards the tree, I focused on the tire tracks in the grass.

It bounced down in between two trees no more than 10 feet apart into the next yard and found a cushy, thick bush to bring my Jeep to a stop mere feet from their garage.

Nobody hurt, no serious property damage, no injuries to my Jeep, although I haven't got it out yet. A couple of tire tracks through one neighbors yard, one half-flattened bush and a Jeep in a place it shouldn't be...what I came home to last night.

I've got a 30 ft strap and a truck that can pull out anything. As long as I can keep one axle on pavement it will have enough traction to pull it out without doing damage to the yard.

I'm free all day. Send me a PM if I can help.

I was picking up my spare tire and since I didn't have an address I assumed I wan't invited. Though I did consider driving up and down every residential street in Tigard looking for a Jeep stuck in someones yard and then waiting patiently for the show
