So I was on what should have been about a 4-4.5 hour drive between Kelowna and Merritt, British Columbia. I was getting tired so I decided to pull off at an exit and take a look around on the logging road right next to the highway. You could have driven a Civic down this logging road it was so nice. Everything was great as I got further from the highway. Until the end of it that is. They are extending the road and little did I know there was snow run off running under the road. It all looked dry and hard. I was just sitting there about to turn around when the whole truck dropped through the dry crust on top of the mud. Note the slop in the third picture. That wasn't there until I started moving the truck around and try to dig it out. The more I moved around, the bigger the hole got. haha. With a little work I had the truck moving back and forth in the hole but could not get it OUT of the hole which was about a foot deep. The stock tires are good for one thing, pavement. No cell service, by myself. Luckily I was coming home from a National BMX race I had competed in. I rode my bike back to the highway and had to call a buddy once I had service. He drove over an hour out of town in his more than equipped '95 Chevy to yank me out. What a guy!
My wheels are scratched to ****, the hitch is a little bent, the windshield is scratched and I've spent about 3 days pressure washing and there is still mud falling out. The only thing that made it worth it was seeing a moose about 50-60 feet away from my truck while I was sitting there waiting. Sorry, no moose pics.
Thought someone might have a good laugh!
