    Not the best decision

    Like many of you, my tow vehicle is used primarily for hauling the 5er. Once in a while it does get pressed into other service however. Last Sunday, I received a call from my brother-in-law, that his wife brand new Rav4 was stuck. So I packed my tow straps and headed to my in-laws to give them a pull. Upon arrival it was worse that I thought. She had tried to keep her new car clean and venture off the beaten track at her parents. I managed to get her out, but in a moment of "loss of situational awareness" I went to move around her. As the pictures will attest, it was a poor decision. And yes, using the tractor was also a less than optimal choice. All ended well, but it did take the wrecker from my brother-in-laws body shop and winch to get everything unstuck.

    Sinking the truck was one thing. The tractor took it to a whole new level. The holes filled with water almost as fast as we dug them
