Default Ditch by the Church

So i was bored after church and there was a nice mud puddle by the road so me and friend decided to go through it in 2wd. got stuck. 4wd high. got stuck.

no worries just put it in 4wd low. still stuck. dug a nice little hole for my tires with all the spinning. right side of the truck is submerged in water up to the top of my tires.

luckily my church is right next to a shipping distrubition warhouse and a railroad track so we "borrowed" some wood and shipping crates to wedge underneath the tire. still stuck.

we find a 8 foot steel beam and wedge it under the rear tires. can barely get it under because were right next to a hill and tailpipe is pretty much at ground level.

we get it under there finally and a few reverse and forward tries it finally gets enough traction to go forward out spraying mud everywhere and getting my friend dirty.

whats funnier is everybody passing by was laughing at us and we got some funny looks going trough downtown with a truck covered in mud.

Last time I drove thru town with mud every one asked me where the hell did I find mud (If your a farmer or rancher in this drought you understand)

For the city folk, I had water when everyone else is ready to kill for it.
