I rarely go off road but this was a just a matter of my patients wearing thin and the fact I did not have the vehicle in 4x4 mode to begin with. A accident had occured backing up all the cars. Lo a behold a field was to my right with some kind of wooden fence next to it. I said good, go though field and then back onto the road. Total drive would be 20 seconds. Well it was a grassy field and just before I was to hop onto a area that was hard and compact from other cars my truck got stuck >:| Anyway, I put it in 4x4 mode and made almost no effect. The RR tire was dug well into the mud with the bumper almost on the ground. LR tire not as bad. Seems that fields while feel firm on top can be mushy underneath from a heavy rain. If I had a good mud tire what could have taken me out of this? The tires are just all season tires. Could lockers taken me out of this? The front tires were on the hardpan. Or new tires? Looking at MTR if not to expensive. Ohh and the funny part I called BCAA and a small s-10 pickup with a warn winch came to pull me out. I thought the thing would drag to me but it had the pulling power to pull me out. BTW if I had a whinch I could have used the telephone pole 50 feet away if I did not bring the pole down.
