Whoops! Stuck Unsticker

Stuck Unsticker

I got a call from a friend saying he got stuck and to bring multiple trucks with winches. Apparently he was playing in the mud with his dirt bike and got it stuck. He then decided to use the backhoe to lift it out and succeeded. But when he went to turn around, the backhoe sunk into the pit. The hydraulics did not work properly, to make things worse. Luckily, two trucks (one chained to a tree) with 12,000-pound winches pulled it right out without much trouble. Later that day I blew up my transmission because I got water in it driving through a water crossing.
