Too Excited About Being StuckWe decided to go four-wheeling in Grand Lake, Colorado, and got my '96 Yukon buried in about 5 feet of water. I drove over a hill without checking to see what was in front of me and all of a sudden the truck smacked this huge wall and then fell into a small pond. After breaking a 9,000-pound winch, three tow straps, two shovels, and a jack, we finally freed it with the help of a guy in a Dodge.

Cure for BoredomI was bored one afternoon so I drove up the road to a hill I had climbed many times before. Rain had turned a small rut into a very large one, and, well...the rest is history.
Four-Wheelin' Minus OneWhat started as a great day for a trail ride soon ended as a bad day. The swamp got the better of me and my Bronco. Three hours later we got it loaded on a trailer and headed home.
