I actually broke his taillight when I opened my door, it's okay tho he's a good friend

EJ's suggestion should get you out just fine, and if it doesn't, 2 - 3 mins of shoveling will free up the rear end enough to get out.

You don't have to be a teenager to make a bad choice. I think I was 24 there. It was a few years ago.

Ended up getting a pull out from my buddy's ram. I was in snow covering my rear differential and all the front did was spin when I tried to drive out

That was the result of working a few 12 hour shifts in a row in retail. I got out of work and thought, "Wow, that looks fun! I'm gonna do it!" Obviously the frozen snow pile got the best of my ZJ and me. I got pulled out by a stock Blazer. At least he had to put it in 4WD to move me. I was pretty stuck.

The snow had melted then froze again. It was more or less solid ice. I looked at it from only the one side and thought I could do it. Being tired and having other people somewhat egg me on, I went ahead and didn't check the other side. To my surprise, there was a little over 2' worth of a vertical drop. I instantly high centered myself.

Also, I have no clue as to why YouTube thought my audio should be muted. Lame.

Says a claim of copyright infringement. Probably from whatever song must have been playing.

I had to explain that I was the drummer for my band when I used some of our music in one of my videos....
Took two weeks, and I(and band mates) own the copyright...

There are so many other videos out there with songs in them including some of mine. I'll just end up deleting it then re-uploading it.
