Forgot the Four-Wheel
This is what happens when a bunch of young Canadians go camping. Eight kilometers up the mountain we found a nice mudhole and--surprise, surprise--we got stuck. A broken jack, a snapped come-along, and several blocks of wood later we eventually got it out. Maybe next time we won't try to mud a stock two-wheel-drive F-150.

The one time my wife listened to me I was telling her to keep driving through this 5-foot-tall grass, not knowing what was on the other side. My YJ wouldn't pull itself out and neither could a 2500 Suburban, so an off-road towing company pulled me out. That was cheap.
Here are some pics of my Baja Toy. I was prerunning up a muddy hill when I lost traction, rolled about four times, and finally acknowledged it about five minutes later.
