Mess of The Month
While venturing to a hunting spot in upstate Pennsylvania, I tried going around a fallen tree only to slide off the muddy road and into this pit. After about five hours with a come-a-long and making it roughly 20 feet, I decided to call it a day. The next morning we used my dad's 1/2-ton Silverado to pull me out the rest of the way, and for some reason I'm still hearing about it!
