Default thanks

Thanks to who ever brought the cake and gift for my son. My son was having an awesome time till we got stuck. Unfortunately by the time we got back from being stuck the trailer was packed up so we didn’t get any cake.

We had ended up high centered on a log I did not see buried in the snow. We sat around for about 45 minutes till someone came by with a winch. The log was long enough that it ran from the front axle till about 2 feet past the back end. Good thing they came when they did because most everyone was leaving. Thankfully I didn’t break anything.
Thanks again!

I hate that feeling when your stuck and you start to worry if someone IS gonna come. I also hate staying the night in the woods with your broken or stuck truck.

No problem. I am glad he liked it. It was a bad day to be an axle so you got lucky.

They are falcon wild peaks. They are not good in the snow. That guy is mschaffer66 if you would like him to sell them to you. I may or may not know him well enough to get you a smoking deal
