One time I found a girls wallet . It was filled with credit cards, DL, money, ect. I get her number from the phone book and call her to say I found it and next thing I know she's insinuating that I stole it !
Next time I'll throw it in a mailbox.

Thanks for the update. He's fortunate it all worked out (minus the hood latch).

If you go wheeling alone, which is stupid, you better have a winch, tree strap, shovel, and other recovery gear.

Once wheeling alone, being stupid, I got high centered on a berm, it was -25 outside and I was glad to have my winch. I pulled out 10 feet of winch line at a time, and had to got inside to warm up my fingers at least four times. Thought I was gonna get frost bite. I anchored the winch line on a thin tree and I thought I was gonna break it, I'd be screwed if it did. I was less than one mile from a paved road, but I'd be damned if I'd leave my Jeep alone there and to look for help. I winched myself out and learned a damn good lesson.

^Wow, in Alaska, no kidding not to go wheeling alone! The moose alone are enough to worry about I've been told.

It's an old post but going strictly by my personal experience with long island ...It was stolen and then abandoned.
Happened to me but I never got the car back in one piece, What I got back was a crispy hulk worth $0.00 and some cents.
I would have paid $5000 to get it sent back, It was a completely cherry 79 trans am T tops and 6.6

We used to carry recovery anchors in the military. If we got stuck, you bury this thing about 30 feet away, two to three feet down with a trench for the cable to come out and you can hook your winch to it and winch yourself out.
I've seen people use boat anchors too, but some of them have cast attaching rings that would just snap off with the force a winch can put on them.
Never got to use one, but heard stories of some of the guys in Egypt having to with the sand.

You can do the same thing with a spare tire or really any other heavy/bulky object you can attach a winch line to and bury. Burying a spare tire is pretty tiring though, especially if you have to move it a couple of times.
