[QUOTE=SunDown;20227361]No, he and a friend walked out 2 weeks ago. He tried to get a tow truck up there, but it got stuck too. I guess the guy knows Luke's (SpudMedic) cousin or something so Luke put the whole thing together on Facebook. We just went up to get his car and tow it back. It was a long day, but the car is back with the owner with no real damage to it.

This is the story the owner wrote on Facebook (It's long so I apologize in advance lol)




Stranded in the Freezing Cold and Snowy Mountains of Idaho on January 26-27, 2014.

Wow, amazing story! Just cruising over the story it creeped me out.
My birthday was January 26th.
The renters of a home I own in Colorado has the same last name.
What are the chances?

Easy does it :-)

Maybe I missed a post about a run while I was crying about the other story; hey...I'm 42; I tear up during Folgers commercials now days, not sure why.
Anyway; I still have balls of steel for inflicting body damage.
Run this weekend? 21st, 22nd, 23rd?
Also, a couple buddy's from my old club in Colorado and I are going to Easter Jeep Safari in Moab. How about a treasure valley group heading there?

I would trade a V8 for lockers and gears in a heartbeat. A guy at work just bought a new Rubicon that I've been drooling over.

I will be leaving Wednesday night hopefully trailing the jeep down. I know a few others will be leaving Thursday night also to catch the tail end of EJS.
