Cream with that mud, Sir?
Went mudding on a Sunday afternoon. It got a little crazy.

Holding Up His Own Truck
We were out hunting when we pulled onto this oil field leased land. Before we knew it we had dropped the front end of my F-150 into a 6-foot-deep washout.

Mess of the month
Way Beyond Stuck
I witnessed this on County Road 158 outside of Mobile, Alabama, at the site of road construction. Apparently the orange track hoe began to sink when the yellow one went to extract it. The yellow one got stuck too. The estimated weight of each track hoe is 60,000 pounds (30 tons). They got the yellow one out first with some dozers and other track hoes. The last I saw of the orange one, it was on its side in the hole.

Try and Try Again
All I can say about the picture is that as soon as the track hoe pulled out my '55 Dodge, I turned around and went for it again.
