1986 Chevy 1500 Stuck In The Drink - Whoops!

I just finished the front clip swap on the ’86 Chevy and had to go for a drive. My son and I were having a blast breaking ice. We went to turn around and the soft bottom did us in! We didn’t walk far before a guy in a Suburban followed us back to pull us out—I had to drop the clutch in Second gear and bump-start it because the starter was wet.
