So one of my awesome co-workers thought it would be a good idea to get himself stuck in a muddy hole door deep looking for firewood?

One of my other co-workers tried to pull him out and also got stuck so they called me to assist. I wasn't really happy being I was busy with family doing the xmas tree stuff but I need these guys at work tomorrow so I have someone to boss around Smile So I pulled the chevy pickup out no problem then moved down to pull the original guy out.

Ford Explorer stuck up to the doors in a muddy hole with a broken 4wd system. I don't have any type of recovery equipment but these guys had a 10ft chain which wasn't long enough to keep me out of the mud so i also got stuck, but of course the awesome Landie finally pulled itself out which then i told him either hes staying stuck or get a longer chain or strap and I'd give it one more try to recover him. So to make a long story some what shorter were all home and I got free recovery gear that he had to buy at the auto store for recovering him. I figure a couple more times recovery my co workers I'll have a full bag of recovery gear here soon.

Just thought i'd share

Thats great you got them out, you got free gear, and you have a great ball busting story for work on Monday.
Some of my co workers trucks will never see any dirt. They buy them to look good driving in the snow and they can't do that cause of me.

Heck yeah! I actually had fun and wasn't to mad once I got there and saw both trucks stuck lol. It was just a plus that he gave me the tow strap he had to buy for taking time out to recover them. Oh and he gave the other guy gas money.

Morale of this story, pay for firewood, don't take your busted ass Ford off roading looking for some, it would save you tons of money and you don't even have to switch to Geico. Laughing

Wood at the royal farms store = $6 bucks a bag

Tow straps and gas money = $75 bucks +

FYI those hd rubber car floor mats is what got me un-stuck. He had one and put it under my front tire, tire grabbed and the truck backed right out, I'm adding them to my recovery gear list lolol.

Buy a 9 meter Ironman snatch strap for cheap and start collecting!

Good going, mate. Now let's see if you can pull me ass out of Frog Pond like Brian. Very Happy

Ford Explorer? You should have doused it with gas and lit it on fire.
