Maybe some day your creeks will see some frost.

AdventureMyk I need to get the high-lift jack. It's one more item on the To-Do list. It's only money, right?

Motok, the snow might make it a whole lot more fun but the real mud comes when the frosted ground softens and melts...

I thought about that before. Last night made it seem like an even better idea.

motokeen My friend lives less than a mile away from there. I would have had him come pull me out but it would have sucked getting out in that water!

woods453 You need to get a winch if you're gonna be out there alone, boy.

glad to hear you and the jeep are ok and not frozen into the creek.

Jerry Bransford Yeah we almost get frozen into our local creeks like that all the time here in San Diego.

jcf sounds like you should have a beer or 6, glad you didn't get stuck
01-05-2010 12:01 AM
Geoff@Bestop Nope, not going to work. We need pictures. Go again tomorrow.

Sounds like an adventure. Do you ever think if you got stuck and left it there overnight, it would be really frozen into the creek by the next day?

I wish I had a video!

I decided to go wheeling toninght down a creek. It was parcaly frozen. We started down the creek and found it was way deeper than we thought and had large rocks and trees under the water. We started boncing around and found the water to be about head light level. I stayed in the gas and then the creek got super tuff and the tires started spining. I was freeking thinking I would be stuck in the water and its like 2out. Then I realized my 4 low wasn't grabing all the way. So I pulled it a little harder and backed up to a spot I could jump out of the water. The water was so could my belt started sliping and my volt meter droped I thought I was going to have a bad night. We got lucky made it out and home.
