Default Stuck bad...

Was driving some state game lands, wasn't trying to do anything crazy and I went down this hill down and off road to the main trail, went through a little mud no big deal, went a little further there was a locked gate so I had to turn around, still no big deal, went through that same mud I came through before and I just sunk. Started getting late tried to lift up my truck with the high lift jack put some stuff under my tires to help still didn't work... Called my friend with an f150 to come and pull me out. Pulled at it for 2 hours only moved about a foot... broke 2 tow ropes, and part of a trailer hitch. busted my valve stem to my rear right tire and had to change a tire in a foot of mud in 40 degree weather. Its still sitting up there right now... went home with my friend. Called AAA won't go off the unpaved road. Called a towing company they are busy at the moment and said they'd call back. Called the state game commission they said they were busy and would call me back... So now I am waiting to find out whats gonna happen...


here is the pic

Just so you know... Winch is only good if you have something to winch off of... trust me lol. I had my ATV pretty stuck and I worked like a bugger to get it out. Ended up hammering a bunch of tree limbs into the ground at an angle with a big rock and piling some rocks on them... then I wrapped the winch cable around it and pulled... an hour later I had my 600+lb quad out.

I suggest you get a block with a hook while you're at it. If you can use it in your situation it'll double the power of your winch.
