Here's the situation...this fellow is buried to his frame at the waters edge...not in dry sand... When you are stuck like this there is no hope of digging out nor being pulled out by a regular truck/SUV...

So, in a case like this you got to call in the heavy artillery-BIG RED aka BIG BERTHA...

Before the pullin' starts, you ask questions and hope that BIG RED can save your truck...and your buddies look on shaking their heads hoping that this never happens to them...

So you get back in the truck and pray that BIG RED will save the day...

In the end BIG RED comes thru and you are thankful...

Wonder what the tower's fee was...

Stories are so much better with pictures biggrin.gif . 75%?? I'd ditch it and get new stuff. How can you possible get a reasonable estimate of all your cargo? That would be tedious.

This one is interesting...this truck (camper) I think was the victim of a bad storm...

No matter, this one is buried deep-to the top of the wheel wells, again in the wet stuff...

So, the tower comes out...looks a little light for the job...

That first one I think I could pull out with my warn 8274 and some snatch blocks to multiply the pull. I might need some trucks to anchor too though. The other trucks are screwed!!

 

Or maybe I am just full of it?!?!! tongue.gif

I might be wrong but that white GMC camper/van looks like 2 wheel drive to me.

 

it's quite possible that it is , on south core banks there a lot of 'locals' that take a 2 wheel drive on the island & leave it there for the season .just ride the ferry back & forth ..........

derf
