Stuck GM

On my vacation to gatlinburg on our way to the cabin one night I cam across a family in escalade that had ran off the road.Onstar told him it would take two hours to get someone out there.So I pulled him out .I thought it would pull me toward the ditch like my two wheel drive had alwasy done but i guess four wheel drive doesnt do that .I never spun a tire it just came right out.His truck was about to turn over so we got his three little kids out before i pulled on it.The escalade was all wheel drive I didnt know they made them that way.I sure like my 4x4 I wont own anything else.

Good job and alot better than OnStar's 2-hour timeframe!!! We're headed up that way next weekend. That looks like one of the chalets on the way up to Ober.
