So on Christmas we decided to go out and get a little dirty. We were over at my aunt's house in Martinsville. There is a short trail near her house so me in my JKU and my dad in his Tacoma take some people on a few rides on the trail and then back. The last leg of the trail the Tacoma couldn't do because it's wheel base was too long, so I went on about another 125 feet to a creek to turn around. I did this all 4 times, well coming back from the creek the trail had gotten pretty worn and I got stuck.
We worked all night to get the vehicle unstuck, it being Christmas and not having another vehicle that could get to me all we could do is dig. Unfortunately the vehicle sank and was now sitting on the rear axle. The blizzard was rolling in and it was almost 1am. We finally called it quits and left my jeep out there.
Before I get the lectures, I know how unwise it was to go somewhere the Tacoma couldn't, but in my mind I had done it 3 times before just that day. (I've done this trail a couple times in the past with my Cherokee) In retrospect, I should have seen this coming, it was a rookie mistake. :hide:
I'm here to see if I can gather any fellow jeepers to help me rescue my JK. I believe all I need is a good tug from behind to pull me out of the mud.
