Oh and my first time wheeling.
Had a couple of buddies that had Chevy 4x4.
One was huge, now this was back in the late 70s so it probably had 33 inch tires on it.
It was a winters night and we had been partying all night. No snow on the ground but really cold.
One of the guys suggested that we go out wheeling, one of the guys there knew a spot to go.
Headed out with only a chain as recovery equipment.
Came to a place that was all rutted out, but the ruts were going cross way from the way we were going.
The guy with the big Chevy nailed it and we bounced to the other side.
The guy with the smaller Chevy decided to go slow, he inched his way to the first rut, and both front tires fell into it.
Got the bigger Chevy across the ruts again and hooked the chain up to pull him out.
Yep you guessed it, the chain snapped.
Spent a couple of hours trying to jack the truck up to put rocks under the tires but could not get the truck unstuck.
We had to pile 6 guys into a single cab truck to get home.
I learned a three valuable lessons that night.
First, never use a chain.
Second, never wheel after you have been drinking.
Third, never drop both tires into the rut at the same time!
