Wagoneer Woes
My buddy and I were out wheeling when we ran across this Wagoneer with 40-inch Boggers. The mud got the best of him and we ended up winching him out. He ended up with a broken tranny and transfer case. We had to roll him down through the entrance of the trail. As soon as we got him out, his buddy got his K-5 with 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrains stuck in the same hole. You think they'd learn.

Mud Stumped
This little hole just got bigger and bigger.

Mess of the Month
Gravel Hawg
I tried to climb a gravel pile with my Scout, flipped over backwards, and slid back down on my roof. We used a winch to upright it and towed it back to camp. That night I started it up and it drove right onto the trailer.

This mud sluice is at the bottom of Turkey Bay OHV Park. A little creek comes out of the tree line and people just kept running through it until it got rutted out. Going in this way is a bigger job than it looks because there is a 3-foot-tall step at the other end.
