Default High Centered...

Monday I was out at the 7 Mile ORV Park here in Washington. Did the usual hill climbs, lumbs n bumps, and a couple mud holes. All that's really left as far as water hazards are the really nasty ones most bigger rigs hit. Well I'm one of the bigger rigs so I never really fret to take em on. I finally found one way to big. The ruts were so large that it had put my my tires to touching practically nothing on one side.

A full size Bronco and Toyota pickup weren't able to pull me out, even at yanking together. So I had to call a tow truck. Cost me $50 to get them to come get me outta the whole. As soon as the tow truck pulled me out, a fellow driver walked outta the woods asking me to help them. So I assisted a Wrangler outta a whole it was stuck in. Here are some pics, I didn't stop after the driver pulled me out. Thought I'd make the most of it since the wife wasn't to incredibly happy with me getting stuck :-)

That parking attendant happened to be my passenger... Who said "hey let's try this one..." So we get out of the rig and pull out the LOGS that are at least 8 ft. long... I say "this one will be tough." He replies with "don't be a girl about it." Needless to say, I made him pay for half of the tow out.

Agree with you on that one, it could have been a lot more expensive!
Looking at where the truck was, that must have been a fun swim when you got out of it!

I'll be going out with a couple more rigs again on Sunday. It's like 100 some acres I think of land set for just ORV's. Really nice well taken care of area, if you've got it... Flaunt it!
