See what I mean? The Jeep changed the driver from a teenaged douche nozzle into a hot chick. No wonder Boothy hates them.

You can see the blond leaking out of those heads....

And those aren't Jeeps, they may say "JEEP" on them, but no, those aren't Jeeps.

This is a Jeep.

This is what I told The Nurse a few minutes ago;

 

Oh yeah, he's fuked. I told him where my friend with the huge tractor is (like a mile away) and told him to hook it on go find him quick and pull that fugly $60k piece of shit truck of yours out, asap.....before the tide comes back in and wipes out ten grand worth of brakes and suspension. I also pointed to the very smokin' hot chick in their 9 person group and said 'And take your girlfriend with you when you go to town and talk to the guy. Tell him Ricardo sent you. And make sure she gets out the car as well....it might save you fifty bucks.'

Turns out that wasn't his girlfriend....the fat chick was.....and she didn't seem to pleased with me when they left......

When my very blue collar dad was teaching me how to drive he took us in the truck to a big sloppy muddy field and drove it around until he got it good and stuck. He then told me to to get it unstuck. 

Another similar blue collar guy drives up and offers to help out. Dad said nope he's learning to get it done on his own. The other smiled and said good, then drove off.

I got it out.

Learned a lot about self sufficiency and work effort from that man. Thanks dad.

Many years ago I was part of a team installing some aviation nav aids at Gove, Northwest tip of the Gulf of Capricornia.  One weekend, for recreation, we took the 2WD Ford station wagon for a bush drive at Rainbow Cliffs (Gurinyala these days) where we promptly got bogged.  Big tides in that area and the floorpan was resting on the mud.  4 of us worked our butts off in scorching temps, digging with our hands and stuffing grass and twigs around the wheels.  We got it out just before the water reached us!  Learned some important lessons that day ...

Yeah - no opportunity though.  Drove around a couple of clumps of grass onto what looked like a firm sand pan - only to go straight down!  

Absolutely exhausted, we headed back to town, only to find the "road" engulfed in flame from a grass fire at the old ELDO space tracking station - we had to drive through it (hunched down to avoid the radiant heat) and hope the tyres didn't catch alight.  I think all the mud on the sidewalls saved us!  Beers went down well that night :P

That's stuck.

 I only got stuck like that once, and I still had the Cooper cross country zippers on it when I did.... And it was in early April.... In my own driveway.

 Mud season, doncha know. I drove in, and hit a muddy spot. I stopped and put it in 4WD. It just kinda nose dived. I put it in 4W-low. It just dug it's self deeper. I tried to back out. Nope. I went and hooked a chain to the rear bumper, and tried to pull it out w/ the 8-N with the throttle on the Jeep just revved a little. Nope, started digging the 8-N in to the mud.

 The neighbor came over w/ his jeep, and between his jeep, the 8-N, and my Jeep in gear, we still couldn't pull it out. He went and got his f-250 4WD. same thing, no go.

 Called AAA. They came up with a slingshot. Got themselves stuck. Had to call the biggest truck they had. The big monster with the lifter jacks, the boom, and the 3/4" cable. First they pulled the slingshot out.

 Then they pulled my Jeep out. It made a sound like pulling a thumb out of your ass.

I left it there for the night (It was cold, and I was wet, muddy, and cranky)

 Next day it warmed up some.

I opened the hood, and took most of the big rocks out of the front end, and drive train area before I drove it around to where I had a working hose.

 I rinsed the mud, and small rocks out pretty easy. There were some softball-bowling ball rocks up behind the engine that took some work to get out.

 I left the mud line on the outside of the body alone. It was over the headlights in the front, and went back in pretty much a straight line to the bottom of the body pan in the back.

I saw the tow truck driver a few weeks later, and he said that that was the most stuck vehicle he'd ever pulled.

 I never, ever should have sold that Jeep.

And oh yeah.... In 2 days the driveway was dry, and aside from a few ruts, perfectly passable.

Shit howdy. Somewhere up in Cali, in a big box, I have a photo album with a couple pics of my best friend Moose and me and my '66 metallic root beer brown 912, up in the Malibu Hills somewhere.....with smoke & flames pretty much on one side of us...not too far away. Probably around 1981....big fires that summer. Moose was in fire science classes back then and he was very interested in this shit, and said we were pretty safe here at Malibu Lake.

 

Then the fuking wind shifted......

The number of bad things that happen after that statement is long. 

As for the weekend idigit, that rig looks very similar to mine. 01 Burb 3/4 ton. But mine has a few more tools to self extricate. Not to mention the fact that I go slow enough on soft ground to still have the back tires on solid ground.

Ran into that after a good thunderstorm in southern Idaho. Red mud and went to turn on the trail and the front tires just went right to the bottom. Still needed the winch and a strap on a boulder to back out. One of the advantages of a cradle and front and rear receivers.

Thats pretty cool.

As a sailor I'm going to predict that line getting snarled up on the drum though...  But they seem to be making a go of it.

Also, what if there is a slightly less than straight pull direction?

It's been tried and tested by a lotta folks on the offroad & expedition forums. Works some of time depending on the situation. But I'll just stick to my old stand-by of carrying a couple 15 foot long x 15 inch wide rolls of chain link fencing. Saved my ass more than few times in Mexico......

These dipshits were stuck for 2 daze down here near San Quentin last month. One 'tow' truck, one tractor and a big dozer later, they finally got un-fuked. Not a cheap lesson to learn....even in Baja bucks.....

I used to drive my mighty Ford Escort on the beaches on Padre Island in Texas.  The sand was pretty hard packed especially up to the high tide line but there were some soft stretches too.  I was used to driving in deep snow back home and the sand wasn't too much different, as long as you maintained your speed you wouldn't bog down.  The only time I got stuck when I was car number 3 in a line of 5 or 6cars.  The idiot leading the pack hit some soft sand and I was yelling to myself that he shouldn't slow down, which of course he did and eventually he got stuck, so we all got stuck.  

Everybody was milling around scratching their heads and I saw some driftwood planks lying around so I told the dude to jack up his car, we threw some planks under the front wheels and I told him to gun it and don't let off the gas until he got to some firm sand a few yards away.  He did that and then he just drove off.  Fortunately rather than doing that for the other 5 or 6 people that were stuck, a guy in a Jeep with a tow strap and big fat tires happened by and he pulled everyone else out.  They guy wouldn't take any money for his trouble and he had a big, white, beautiful Great Pyrenees dog as a  bonus.  Probably could have just harnessed up the dog and he could have pulled the cars out.

Another time down there a guy had backed his jet ski trailer into the water to retrieve his noisemaker.  They kept dicking around and they didn't notice the tide was coming in in spite of several of us warning him.  I just watched the tires sinking as the rising water and little waves kept washing the sand away, causing the tires to keep going into the sand.  By the time they got the jet ski on the trailer he was up to both axles in the sand and not too long later the car had a considerable amount of water in it.  Somebody called and a big tractor showed up and pulled the car out and by then the water was just about up to the sitting part of the seats.  It was a newish convertible, I'm thinking is was 50/50 if it was reparable at that point.  Time and tides wait for no car.

Literally 1000's upon 1000's of us 4x4 folks around the world followed George's rescue from La Playa over Christmas, 2019. George was very un-smart for driving in that 'dry' lake bed.....but he's a pretty cool, humble and appreciate dude that went kinda famous.....for a variety of reasons.

Here's the rescue vid from Nor Cal 4x4 (a GREAT group guys btw if you ever fuk up).....well worth the watch...B)

el Ricardo, question of curiosity. So there you sit in your own little paradise...... people wander in and get stuck in to sand, muck, whatever. So the question is, why don't you just get a monster of a truck, backhoe, whatever, watch and laugh, then wander down and hand them your card?
Make a couple hundred, wander on back to your beach chair, crack a beer, and chuckle?

Back in my senior year of high school - this was quite similar to my Daytona Beach Ride. Mine was that light blue. Hated being in the US after coming to live back in the states. after a few high tides, the car rusted into nothing. I left mine barely running in a fouled mess and cleaned out in a Florida landmark parking lot reporting it stolen. :ph34r:

    An old buddy of mine was from Minnesota. His Dad was a mechanic who passed his skills down to both his sons. I have lots of stories of their collective mis-adventures but the one that this thread dredged up should be shared here.

    His Dad had bought an Army 'Deuce and a Half' 2.5 ton truck (M 35) from surplus shortly after the Korean War was over. I think Dad had been a mechanic in the Army and he eventually figured out how to build a pair of tread tracks that he could bolt to the rear axles and turn it into a 'half track' of sorts. Even before he added the rear tracks he was making a pretty good profit operating the beast as a snow plow in the harsh Minnesota winters. The half tracks were a summer project and allowed his plow to operate in even worse conditions. He had a big self designed and built tow crane rig on the back and besides plowing he made good money towing people out of snow drifts and mud. I never knew that there were cowboys in Minnesota but Dad and his sons may as well have been from Texas with the 'git er done' mentality that trickled down to the boys from Dad. 

    28 Deuce and a Half ideas | army truck, trucks, military vehicles

 

     There was a half track built by International Harvester but I don't think was based on the Deuce and a Half. 

Ironclad, but Not Guaranteed - The New York Times

    The Minnesota Monster was soon capable in the slippery stuff that the State Hwy Department would call for a tow when their snowplow/tow trucks would get stuck. Think of the bragging rights that gave those sons when they were teenagers!

    Here is an example of the ingenuity that was passed on to the sons.

We all do. But we keep telling ourselves it is all about learning from other's mistakes. In reality it is all about what I like to call, The Jerry Springer Effect. By watching another person's pain, we elevate ourselves to not being as bad off as others. Sort of like you are getting the shit knocked out of you offshore and you say aloud to no one in particular, "Could be worse, could be raining"..... of course just as the words cross your lips, you feel instant regret as the sky darkens on the horizon.

No, after 4 different trucks showed with dog leash size recovery straps and just got stupid dumb doing Jack squat, a real smart mid 20's Mexican kid that I know showed up out of the blue with a hundred foot, 2" diameter poly rope (commercial fisherman style), tied up to the stuck truck then put his on the little asphalt road (where there's actually some traction) and slingshotted this guy out of the mud in 3 seconds. Pretty damn impressive actually, given the uphill passenger side wheels were buried to the hubs.....and the drivers side had water coming in thru the door.. ....:lol:

The built up energy in 100 ft of springy rope must be impressive.  30 ft should be enough, but the guy needed to get to the road, so there is that.   I'm always surprised that more parts don't get ripped off.

And not those idiots with a hook on a plastic bumper cover.
