So I got the call last night from Bruce that he was stuck...again....in his back yard. I got there early today while Bruce was still at work just to 'survey' the recovery site. This is what I saw:

Not sure where you were trying to go Bruce, maybe we should hook up the GPS to your jeep and hard code the coordinates to your house in it

uh oh... is that a bent drive shaft I see?

So I hooked up the winch to see if we could drag him back off the cement culvert

Word of advice, when installing a brand new winch, make sure that ALL the mounting bolts are tight, I wound up with issues in the clutch brake in that it wouldn't hold when winching

So we tried to pull him back with a tow strap, but everything was slicker than snot and we couldn't get any traction. I wound up driving in the front way and we used Bruce's winch & the exploder as the anchor point. Thank God Danny dropped off some really big cookis from a tree that was cut down, that provided the perfect stepping off point for the jeep so that it wouldn't get sucked into the culvert

And you call yourself a plumber Bruce? Where's the CRACK?? :D
