Unhappy Trucks Stuck At Mounds Need Help Bad!!!!

So, a couple buddies and I went up to the mounds today and got a Cherokee and a Toyota stuck pretty bad. It was getting late and we didn't want to get locked in so we left them there. Now our Problem is that we don't know how to get them out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Willing to pay in beer and gasoline ;)

Thanks a lot

Nothing like crying for help and then not being on line to answer questions.

Today 1/18/09 a couple buddies and I went out to the mounds for some winter wheeling. Unfortunately both of our trucks are staying the night there. I'm hoping that someone on this board could help us out in getting our trucks unstuck. Its really important to us to get them out as soon as possible as my truck is my DD.

We're going to need some big trucks to pull us out. A jeep couldn't get me out and a big ranger couldn't get my friend out.

Please call (614) 563-3686 tonight to discuss when to meet if you would be willing to pull us out.

ANY help will be appreciated, if you know someone that has a bigger (think big 3/4 ton) truck that could help please pass this on.
this what I found over at we got mud.

Broke through the ice, Toyota is a heck of a lot worse. It's about up to the top of the tires in water, then Ice after that. If anyone's going to be there tomorrow let me know, I don't want anyone to go too far out of their way.
