It begs the question, just what were you trying to do exactly? I bet you are going to need a track hoe to get that thing out. Good luck!

Wanted to see if I could make it through. Sling some mud, spin some doughnuts. Thought the swampers would self clean enough to sling the mud off and push through, but bad idea.

Should have remembered getting the dirtbikes stuck a few years back. Needless to say, they were easier to get out.

Yeah, they drain the lakes around here for winter too, to protect the dam and stuff for the freezing weather. They are also usually reservoirs, lowered top prepare for the spring rain/thaws...

They always looked tempting, but I'm too chicken!

Here in Iowa the old pond beds never dry out. Always a sticky bog.

Most people don't see the light till they feel the heat.

I sunk a Bobcat ontime working on my dock. Sickning feeling. I had to call a guy with a backhoe to come and get me out. it sucks.

A good day at work never beats a day (or night)working on the Jeep...

1979 CJ7; 360 w/t 3 speed; 33 ProComp M/T/s; and sounds sooo good!!!!!

Gee who'd have ever thought that the bottom of a lake bed would be muddy?

I live on the maumee river in ohio. Imagine that mud times 4. It is about 4 feet thick. The first foot has the consistency of wet cement. and the next three are kinda like that. It takes months for that stuff to even come close to drying out.

Disregard everything i say

I have a dana 30 front axle and amc 20 rear if anyone is looking. Both are 3.54, drums, narrowtrack.

I lived in Cape Girardeau, MO years ago, we would run the banks of the Mississippi when it was down and dried out. Thing was the mud under never dried and was as deep as you could dig, so when you did break through it would take a track hoe or large wrecker to get out. And chances were you were tearing something up because the axles would get under the crust and hang. Too bad youth is wasted on the young...
That was the foulest smelling mud I have ever been around, even since.
