Post Bad night off the beaten path
So this is at the family homestead. That is our creek's swimming hole that dood parked in. The county road goes through the property and it has the last concrete crossing. It has been many years since someone got stuck here but they have usually washed over the side when it is too flooded to cross. They usually make it to at least the next crossing before getting stuck in the bottomless crossings.
So we got snow last night and it froze up. Dood wakes me up at 3am today wanting to know if I have a pick-up to pull him out. Actually the dogs got to him first but I was half awake already. Told him needs a tow truck after he said he slid off the bridge cause I know the slab. Even one wheel off and you are just gonna make it worse. I think they did. Anyway he asked again about pick-ups, didn't mention anyone hurt, didn't ask for a phone so I gave him some directions. Then some other genius showed up and they kept it up til about 5am. I didn't go look til the decent hour and had kind of imagined they went off the low side which is bad enough. I kinda think he was not over the side til they tried like hell to tow strap it but anyway here it is.

Maybe I'll read it out loud to you sometime, just keep looking at pictures til then. :lol:

I have gotten stuck on that road once in 30 years. It was at the next creek down. I think '86 or so but there was an ice shelf I didn't bump onto quite right with an F150. It didn't need much of a tug but I stopped first before I dug in to the bottom. I used a " first year car of the year" Nova to pull on it so I think the year is close. Also tow straps were a fairly new fangled thing around then and I'm pretty sure I used one on that.
I have been stuck many times in many places other than there though. Once on another creek road was almost stupider than this joker did here.
