March 2010 Whoops!
Mess Of The Month
Chain Reaction My wife got the quad stuck, so I went to pull her out with my truck and got it stuck as well. To top things off, my wife got stuck herself trying to get off the quad! We had to call the fire department to get my wife out, and I still ended up shelling out 420 bucks to get everything else unstuck! Tony Kitchen via 4wheeloffroad.com
Lake Locked This was the start of a very wet and muddy weekend wheeling trip at Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky. It took another Jeep and a Samurai with a winch to pull the Jeep out. Steven Matison via 4wheeloffroad.com
Rubber Dunker We were out at the La Grange OHV Park when we found this 4-foot-deep mud hole and tried to power through it. The obstacle quickly sucked my CJ on 36-inch Iroks to the bottom. Luckily we were able to winch out, and the ol' rust bucket fired right up, and down the trail we went. Eddie Freitas via 4wheeloffroad.com
