i went for wheeling today with my friend it had rained a tad but i

didnt think that the mudhole was much more swollen compared to last

weekend. so i ease intesting the water because i remember a little hole that

drops down and then goes back up. so we were doing fine and when we got

after that little hole westarted questioning it. i was sure wwe would get stuck

if we stopped in put in r so i went forward well soon as te rear tire hit that

hole all the tires lost traction.so we were there the right side was on the high

side thank goodness i got maybe an inch of water in the driver side.i call

chunks and give him a sitrep. hes at the braves game so he gives judas a call

and he there withing 5- 10 minutes. i had my freind on the hard top thinking

he would be able to get the hook on the rear hook. he couldnt figure it out so

i get out the window well my boots that were supposed to be water proof

werent.and they werent above the ankles yet so im like darn. so i get around

to the rear and im short so my arms couldnt reach it. so im like whatever im

getting wet anyway so i try and rool my pants a little and i hop in it was a

little above the knee. i get the hook and i get over to the passenger side and

i just tell my freind to get back in the driver seat he is dryer than me so i just

decided to walk back. at first judas' jeep was slippin so he readjusted and

then it budged and we got it back to shore. i asked him if i needed to check

anything and he said watch the temp as you prolly killed your fan it was fine

on the way home normal. i thought i had killed it but my freind said it was

going im gonna keep and eye on the temp for a while tho. the fan has been

smoking everytime it gets wet so its gonna be a spal soon. we left and

everything was ok. it was a very scary situation for me.ive never got stuck

be fore and of course it gets stuck when im alone. my legs were shaking i was

scared i was gonan ruin my jeep worriend about the fan and the intake which

was dry and hoping i dont have to leave it here and possibly miss work. that

would have been bad.

thank you again judas and chunks you were a great help today. i had my

freind calling ppl he knew as well but couldnt get anybody.

last time i go wheeling like that again alone.

scary stuff.

Yeah what's the deal? you had a phone to call for help but no camera? and your help didn't bring one? Heck I wouldn't even think of pulling you out till I got a picture of you suffering!!:)

good for you getting stuck now the next time won't be as scary.

Agree!

C- on the essay

F (read fail) on the lack of photos. Just because "it" is all puckerd up doesn't get you out of the responsibility of taking photos.

Good story though.

Glad you made it out okay. How long has it been since you said "I haven't been stuck yet"? Was that yesterday? Crazy how that stuff happens.

Definitely why you have buddies on speed dial... The famous phone call... "Whatcha doing?..."

Usually all that's needed as a thanks is some beer. Because you know they'll need a pull at some point...

Can somebody post cliff notes? I really have a dyslexic moment whenever I try to read anything TBP posts. Especially if it's longer than one word.

TBP

Went wheeling
Remembered dynamics of puddles- too late
Called life line
Brought along friend that proved useless
Found out that boots aren't waterproof when submerged
"Rooled" up pants
Got scared- maybe pooped a little
Thought he'd get a whoopin' so didn't take pictures.

END
