    Yup don't go offroad after a big rain in 4x2. And have somebody with you with a 4x4, not another 4x2. Sorry for this dumb post. I called my mom after I got stuck to tell her where I was, just incase anything happened. I had left this site up on my computer, she knows I spend some time on here, and she got on and posted this thread. I would have been way to damn embarrased.
    I was up on mount ord across from sycamore. After a couple of hours of trying to dig out, I walked a couple of miles to the highway. Luckily a maintence guy in a snowcat was heading up to fix the towers after the big storm, and he pulled me out. Definitely learned my 4x2 isnt a 4x4.

    Something my dad always told me is if I was going out in the mud take another person with and keep some wide and sorta long strips of old carpet with you. it will help get some traction and get you moving again.

    I was with some friends, and another vehicle but it was only a 4x2.
    I had plenty of supplies and was chained up. I was trying to stay away from the edge, so I was hugging the inside going up. Next thing I knew my left side slipped into the washed out culvert I couldnt see beneath the snow, and I dropped about 4 feet,and I was leaning at a 45 degree angle up against the mountain with snow up to my window on my inside, and the outside wheels buried to the rockers in mud. I couldnt get to the inside to hijack it, and there was no way my friends 4 runner was gonna do anything. I had some recovery straps and a 10k come along but there was no trees or large boulders close enough. It was on a hill too so I knew it was gonna take one hell of a vehicle to pull me out, I figured I'd have to wait until the snow melted and come back to winch out a stripped truck. My buddies couldn't get by me to get down, so we started to walk to the 87 to get a ride home. I was thinking about how fucked I was and how fun it was gonna be to walk to school and work in the morning, When I see a SnowCat come around the bend, I said a little prayer and figured it was my lucky day. He pulled me out with no problem, and I got out of there with just a bent up slider, 2 torn off mudflaps, a badly scraped elocker and a truck full of mud. I think my daily driver will be stayin on pavement or dry trails until I get out of school and can afford a trail rig.

    man i made the same mistake to off-road after a big storm and buried my 4x4 and so i called my sis to bring my dads 6 inch lifted 4x4 ford f-350 but that shit sank in faster then my tacoma did. then i was screwed because it was my dads truck and he didnt know where i was and i couldn't tell him.but after hours of digging we just called a tow truck to winch it out as for my tacoma some man power pushed it out with little problem. took me about a full day to wash off all the mud and keep him from beating my ass. so your not the only one hah.it kinda made me fell better to hear other peoples storys. also i learned the same lesson ahah. heres the vid a friend made...http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/off-roading-trails/71248-mudding-disaster-video.html

    As long as you learned from it........ glad you got out safe. might think about what you carry in your rig regarding recovery/survival equipment...Perosonally I wheel alone occasionally but take NO chances when I do..... BUT I been doin this for almost 25 years, have a winch among other recovery equipment on board. (Along with the rig specs in my sig line) plus some survival equipment on board as well....... More when its cold/snowy/icy or other "odd"" conditions...... be prepared.
