Best bet in the snow is to always bring a shovel. Might take a bit, but you can pretty much always shovel your way out.

The official "Pioneer Kit" for my M37 contains a short handed shovel, pick-mattock and michigan style ax. Plus with the troop seats full of soldiers, plenty of muscle to dig and push.

Now imagine the hole that would require 10 men with pick and shovel to free you from.

Kinetic energy ropes help. They will give a little more pull if the truck that is pulling is the same size or smaller. In a pinch you can hook a strap to each truck with a tire (no rim) in the middle and it works better than nothing. The tire is screwed when your done though.

I one time ran into a guy in a 1st gen shoveling his way out by a local resevoir. Asked if he wanted a pull, he told me he had it. I think he had spent so much time at it that he was hell bent on it working at that point. He had what you had dug but was digging a semi circle so he could turn around. Must've taken hours. I kept on driving, before passing two more stuck vehicles, and eventually I stuck myself after forging a lot of new road. Used the ol pallet and winch trick since I had to get turned around. Winched myself forward out of the hole and rolled back onto a pallet while turning. Took a while but finally got all the way turned around and headed back. When I passed the two vehicles, the owners were there, I pulled them out and they offered to smoke me out. I said thanks for the offer boys but no thanks, and headed back home. 1st gen dude must've gotten himself out because I didn't see him on the way back.

inb4 cool story bro

I have done that before. It's pride, self reliance, and a thick head rolled into one. If I'm by myself and get stuck using a hi lift and shovel reminds me to be more cautious the next time.

When I did this


got myself all dug out


hole tire dug


truck jacked up, hole filled, base for traction


Then when I'm all done a dude pulls up in a Jeep and asks if I need help. I said "I'm all good".

He watched me get it out. Then we followed each other around the trails hitting harder and harder obstacles until we both needed each others help getting unstuck.

Pretty cool that a the mud faries just showed up over night and got you out. I carry two recovery straps (20 and a 30'), a 20' tow strap, two tree saver straps, a hi-lift, with the ORK (winch kit) and 20' of chain. I usally wheel with a buddy that has a winch though, so my gear doesn't see much use. I got stuck once trying to get another guy out, we both ended up waiting around for a jeep to come by and winch us out. IF I had the kit I carry now, we would have been on our merry way in very little time.

I remember the first time my buddy ever got stuck too. We spent about six hours digging the damn Suburban out of the mud. We damn near built a bridge with wood to dry ground, lifted the truck with a shitty jack, dropped it on the wood and drove it out.
What you need:
- Shovel (for you)
- Shovel (for your buddy)
- Jack (hi-lift with rim clamp)
- Boots
- Tampon remover
- Recovery gear ( for who ever comes to pull you out)
- Experience ( start small. If not, be willing to get messy)
Just some advice.

This is the exact reason I have a winch on my rear. Always remember you can never be over prepared.
