Default stupid is as stupid does

i was tryin to drive the dirt all the way home from work yesterday. imade it most of the way until i decided to make a few (6) passes thru this hole. well...the recovery took a while (notice the EMPTY custom winch cradle), i finally sucked it up and called a wrecker. i was about 3/4 mi from the trail head and almost home.

Hi-Lift and some deadfall under the tires and you could've driven out of there. If you don't have a winch, at least carry a jack, shovel, and a saw or axe. You can get yourself out of most Michigan 'stucks' with those three items, it just takes some time and work.
