Default got stuck

so it finally snowed and i figured it would be a good idea to go down some of the trails with the snow there, well i ended up falling into some super deep ruts which i had made weeks ago through a swampy section of field and since the ground was just frozen i bottomed out and completely high centered with both rear tires spinning and my passengerside front digging in the swamp i wasnt going anywhere. hooked a tow strap to buddy's jimmy and broke it trying to yank and i didnt even move and inch. SO i left it overnight and came back in the morning with a snow blower some wood and a jack and a new strap. and after hour and a half of digging we finnally got it out with some spriited yanking.

Ouch, that sucks lol! Looks like quite the operation you performed to get unstuck. Great pics though. It really shows the fun (and not so fun parts) of winter wheeling

this reminds me of the last time I got stuck... only I was in a construction site and it was 10:00 at night and no one could come and pull me out.. me and my friend were digging for two and a half hours and we almost gave up but decided to call AAA as a last resort luckily they pulled me out. That icy mud can be treacherous
