    Its the State Police post in my home town (Carmi IL) I always wait till im done with everything else and then come back to mow along the concrete last so the dew will be off but due to all the rain we have had the last few weeks I just didnt make it. I should of taken a pic of the hill so you can really see how steep it is. Anyway had to call a wrecker to get me out. $30 but dont think my 4 cyl Toyota could of pulled it out.

    Man I feel for you.

    Learned my lesson about Z-turns on hills 3 years ago. Mowing the back yard of an account that USUALLY takes me 30 minutes. This particular day it had rained earlier, but THOUGHT it would be ok. Ended up sliding down the hill into a chain link fence. COULD NOT get it out without tearing fence out. Ended up taking the chain link fencing apart. Found out how hard it is to put a chain link fence back together solo.

    That 30 minute yard turned into nearly 2 hours.

    Usually the time you try to save is taken up fixing that mistake, plus some.
