Spring [Snow] Stuck Pics

Well, the snow's going fast around here, especially with this 70-degree day. ...but we still ran into areas with a couple feet of snow. The swampers are better at digging than floating! We got stuck a lot and had a good time.

I was hitting roads like that on my dirt bike this week....dirt patches separated by drifts of spring snow...you have to wind it up to like 4th gear on the dirt patches and hope to God you're going straight when you hit the snow patches, then hammer down all the way across the snow...sometimes you come out smelling like a rose, sometimes you wind up sledding Fun time of year. Killer pics

I like how you tried to go high on one side to get traction. Seems like it looks familiar too me?! Anyway, I didn't see/know if you are locked cause I would think no?! Regardless, looks fun.

I had open diffs then believe it or not...and made it through some pretty impressive spots IMO. With these tires down to 8psi, even open diffs can get thru a lot. I just got my Aussie locker in the rear a few days ago though. In those last 2 pics I was only trying to straddle the snow bank/dry side, but slid down a bit and it got worse as I tried to drive out.
