It happened - first time stuck!
Funny thing - after 2 days rain - those median strips are muddy!
Passed by a guy in a bimmer with jumper cables - I was feeling good so I thought I would just turn around (on a 2 lane divided highway - with no traffic coming) and go head back up the shoulder nose to nose to jump the poor guy. All seemed fine - until my front end hit the slight decline of the median - she slid right down. I dropped her in reverse - rear spun. I kicked her in 4wd - front pulled around - right into the thick of the seemingly dry - but now swamp.
Dropped her in low range - started throwing clods of mud - she went no where. Rear dug down to the axle - front sat spinning.
A dude in a 1/2 ton Ford pulled up - we hooked a chain, took him nearly 10 minutes of tugging and pulling but finally got me out.
Hit the highway, spun around and went ahead and jumped the guy after all.
Hey - did you know a BMW battery is in the trunk? Who would have thunk it - I could have evaded this whole escapad!
Oh well -
It's my first "stuck" in 100,000 miles.
