hehe same thing happened to me, almost identical story lol. was out at night with a few buddies, went down some dirt path and then it started to pour, turns out the ground was pretty ****ty and my jeep slid into some ruts left by other offroaders, we were 6 people all trying to push the damn thing out in the rain, having no tools, no winch, was pretty hopeless situation as the jeep was completely hung up on its belly the right side wheels were just spinning and with no lockers, there was no way i was coming out that night, so the 4 other people left in an other car, was a VW golf parked at the beginning of the path.
so after they left it was just me and my buddy left, we were in the car and were like **** so now we gota wait till tommrow to find some help, my freind immediately jumped into the back seat and curled up, i changed seats to the passenger seat out of the drivers seat.
it was horrible, we had no pillows, no blankets, we were soaked in mud and rain water, and ontop of that there were about 1000 mosquitoes in the car.
so 10 mins in, eyes closed trying to fall asleep, BZZZZZZZZZZ, *SLAP* damn mosquitoe....
2 mins later, PRICK, stinging, *SLAP* ****ing mosquitoes!
**** this chair is uncomfortable, turn over onto my side, wtf is that thing there, oh its just the floor mat.
meanwhile in the background i hear my freind slapping himself too because of the mosquitoes, okay so finnaly i drift off to sleep, for a few hours waking up now and then due to uncomfortable positions and the constant BZZZZZZ sound flying by my ears.
okay so somehow we made it to daybreak, enough light to see the interior of the car. at this point it hit us how many mosquitoes were actually in the car, we thought mayby 5 or 10 max. okay no not the case. there was literally like 100 of them, all filled with blood, so we woke up grabbed our wet socks, and started slapping the **** outa the mosquitoes, WHAACK CRASH SMACK! blood smears all over the windows lol, finnaly there all killed
, then my freind tapped the soft top, they were all hiding in the folds near the top of the roof, whoosh 50 more fly out into the car, SMACK SMACK REVENGE IS A ***** ISENT IT!!!?!?!?!
okay so its finally early enough to try to get help, still raining a bit but not as bad, the prevoiuos night we walked quite far looking for some thing to help us get unstuck there was a guy who had a tractor, but he must have left early cuz we tried his house and there was no anwser, so my jeep still being stuck, i had to call 411, call in a tow truck, a costly expense at 150$CAD but i had to get out, so the truck managed to extend its towing line far enough along the path to pull me out, the truck almost got stuck too lol.
lesson learned, always carry a poptent and a sleeping bag or two
and mosquitoe repellent
and possibly purchase a winch, or only do offroading during the day when you can actually see where your going well
