Sidehill Number One
This is the first side hill of the weekend that did not have an alternate
route around it. The first Jeep worked his way across. I was the second
Jeep and drove across unassisted. SNOWBATMAN99 has a reverse angle shot of
the third jeep slipping sideways before being winched at 3:08 on "Northwest
Snow Wheeling". I started videotaping the fourth Jeep in the line. The Red
Jeep with the 47 inch tires was having trouble with the tires falling off
the wheels that day and had too much air in his tires for the prevailing
conditions, but had enough air to make them reliable enough to not fall off
the wheels during this situation. The driver was a novice and was having
problems with his acrophobia. The owner drove it on the return trip.

Four truck to get one car out of snow. read description
This video isn't all that great , except for the end were almost an
accident happens. For the most part this video shows how not to pull out a
car out of muddy snow. Basically my friend Ed asked me if my brother, with
his land rover and I could pull him out of the snow. We never got a chance
to use his land rover because every time when we would get ready to use it
some truck would stop by and offer his help. After a few tries the trucks
would notice there getting stuck also and take off. The funny thing was
that another truck would show up immediately after wanting to help us out.
In the end the 4th truck got us out thanks to the 3rd trucks hard work. The
best part was that we never got the land rover dirty except when we got
Colorado in a Mud Trench @ Mettowee Off-Road Extreme Park
I try to get through a mud trench at Mettowee Off-Road Extreme Park. I'm
glad I didn't make it through the last part. Looking at what happened to
the lifted F350 with 49" tires, I woulda buried my truck. Who thinks I'll
need a strap?

Truck, Snow, FAIL HD(truck wrecks in 4ft snow drift, loader barely pulls it out)
I am visiting friends in Maryland. Several others came to visit last night,
and we tried unsuccessfully to escort them home with the 4X4 truck. We
returned home at 3am, and then tried again this morning to just go in the
We slid out of the road down a bank and into a snowdrift that was
approximately 4ft deep. The nice thing was there was a giant front-end
loader clearing a path at King Farms, and the gentleman operating it
offered to pull us out. It took several attempts, but finally with truck
and loader working together. We managed to pull it free.
Then we had to shovel an area large enough for the long wheelbase truck to
turn around so we could return the way we came.
All in all, it was a fun experience. Plows came through later in the day,
and everyone was able to return home, after shovelling the 800 ft driveway.
Me going up the Ledges at All Wheels
When on a ride with some guys from Maine 4X4 the night before. I did this
line that night and made it. This is the first time I had done this line in
the day light. Its the easiest line there but its I don't have the torque
to do the other line. And don't have any of what I need to the hardest line

Trying to get out of the parking lot on top of Beech Mountain, NC. I
