Help needed off Page Rd (Durham)

Hey Guys,

Managed to get my Jeep stuck on the trails off Page Rd near I-40 in Durham. Still getting the hang of this whole offroading thing. Anyone nearby with a winch/rope able to help me get it out? Willing to make it worth your while.

If you're able to help, give me a shout: (919) 886-3730

Thanks in advance... much appreciated.

Something a hilift jack and chain won't fix?

Suspect that it would, but don't own a Hilift (yet). Will have another go tomorrow, think I can get it out without one. Definitely will get one for next time though...

Awesome. That is a minimalist tool but will make the difference between being stuck and getting out. You know how to winch with it, right? Youtube it if not.

NOW, you have that lesson under your belt! I learned the same way but didn't stop there! I wenta and bought a Hi-Lift Jack and a WARN winch.

Yep, the rumors are true! The better the gear and the more you have, the farther back in you get stuck!

Don't go alone unless you really know the terrain very well and even then use your common sense and don't push it.

Because like me then you'll just break an axle! AND that's not fun by yourself. But I wasn't, I had the wife with me.

I had arrived early and my friends showed up later, much later in the day for our wheeling trip that I spoiled. The gals slept in the hotel while us guys slept on the mountain in the rain.

It was an experience but one I prefer to never repeat!

Because when they break off they can fly at you and seriously hurt you or passangers.

Nylon straps act like very large rubber bands when the are under load and can streach. That build up a tremous amount of energy!

If the strap, the hook, or even the attachment point should break the strap and failed components WILL fly backward, releasing that built up energy and damage or death can occurr. Those parts attached to the broken strap will add in the mass and add weight.

I'm a retired Boatsun Mate Senior Chief, First Class Salvage Diver and have a lot of rigging under my belt. Let me tell you, you don't want to be be there when nylon, wire, or chains part under strain! Regular manila rope is bad enough.

Area off Page Rd. is not a legal trail. Lots of unpleasant consequences if you are caught. Glad you got out OK but even with gear strongly recommend you don't go back.
