    Well everyone likes to go out and play when the weather is crappy.. This is what happened when we went out in one of our fields to go mudding.. enjoy..

    Im missing alot of other pictures due to the fact that it got dark.. Alot of friends from the fire department showed up at about 9:30 pm in an effort to rescue the original truck (the red one) and 4 of those trucks got stuck and a gator..... So one of the workers went and got a farm tractor.. got stuck.. Then there were a few more brave people who got stuck.. So we called it quits.. Got the tow truck out there in the am.. its lifted on tsl super swampers and it got stuck.. Ended up getting the mack wrecker out there and winched all the trucks through the pond with a real long cable..

    haha well the first hour of mudding was great! and basically after the first 10 people showed up everyone was just drinking standing around watching people get stuck.. the only people not having fun was the tow truck guy

    Had a similar experience back in September while dove hunting. A buddy of mine got his F-250 stuck with a full 60 gal. aux fuel tank and the back. I hook to him with my Dodge 2500 cummins 4x4 and got stuck. So we got a JD 8420 to get us out and he almost gets stuck.

    Lots of good memories getting stuck and unstuck. Had 8 trucks one time and my buddies danger ranger with floaters showed up with 100 ft of chain pulled my old ram charger which was lifted with thirty eights out and then doubled up to pull all the diesels out. It was a lot of fun for us guys with older trucks. Two brand new strokers did t like it any haha

    i got stuck once, new years eve last year, my friend has an 80 acre motocross track in his and we were doing laps, and i was doing laps nice and slow, did the hill climb quite a few times, and it was as slick as goose chit, and i made it up no issues, but one lap one of my buddies said drive over the table tap, which was just wide enough to fit my truck so i misjudged it by about an inch or so and my truck was no longer going straight, and eventually it led to this, and we had to take down the tree you see on the ground which was about 1ft from trucks fender. and I used my dads trucks and moved his mini x down there and dropped the tree and hooked up a chain to my plow frame and dragged the truck forward and up at the same time...

    Not my truck or my doing but my buddy got drunk one night went mudding in a construction zone ran off the road. Left it for the night so he wouldn't get in trouble came back the next night the workers had built a burm behind his truck. Water was running through the doors and not a single tire was on the ground. Broke the winch on a tow truck had to bring a flat bed in put the tilt bed basically over his truck and lift it up and drive forward at the same time. Nice 1000$ bill between the broken winch and the tow.

    Pic was first night when we realized my truck wasn't going to get the job done it sat for an additional night which is when the real damage was done.
