STUCK

So up at the crest last night and the truck got stuck in some pretty icy snow/ice. going with a tow company today to try to get it out. more info to follow with pics


UPDATE:::!!!!


So apparently it is very difficult to find a 4wheel drive tow truck with a cabling system, but i found one. Cost about $250 and2 tow trucks to get it out. Had some other 4wheel drive guys try to get us out the night we got stuck but it just made it worse. Problem was, there was ice beneath the snow and the truck kept sliding into the trench to the front left side of the truck. I could still move the truck but it kept sliding closer to the edge(about a 4 foot drop off into trees and rocks).





After it was rescued but didn't want to start.

When it finally started coming out of the trenches

Hi tow truck

Got mine stuck trying to avoid a little Toyota that stopped dead in front of me. Cost me $165 to get it pulled from a 3-foot-deep ditch. I waited 2 hours in the snow and ice. Stupid woman driving the car actually had the nerve to ask me if I could call her some help to get off the ice. Sorry lady, you just put me off the road and want me to call YOU some help? HAHAHA!

30 min. later, a Mitsubishi pickup sideswiped me and destroyed my front fender and step board. $1600 in damage. His truck looked destroyed from headlight to taillight on one side. I bet it's an easy $4 or $5K fix. Sucks to be him.

Will take a pic and post it in the AM.
