While I missed the contest, I feel compelled to show mine. :) Yes, I walked away from this unharmed. The canopy stopped when it hit the steering wheel. Caught it by 2".

This is one neighbor's truck. There was another truck that tried to pull him out but also got stuck. It took a week of drying to get them both out.

But the real failure:


First, I got my truck stuck.

NOTE: He never had a chance to move after he stopped to back up.

No worries, I have a tractor that can pull us both out. Or not. This tractor was sitting on top of the ground the night before when the wheels were spinning. It sunk during the night.

Then my neighbor thought he could use his tractor to pull his truck out. I think he is an idiot - it was not 4WD. But somehow, he got between my tractor and his truck. My tractor is in front of him and his truck is to the left behind him and my truck is in the middle of the photo behind the clump of trees.

No worries! The other neighbor has a D5 Cat! Hahahaha! He did get my tractor out first.

But with a little ingenuity and 2 tractors, we did get the Cat out. Then the JD out. Then the neighbor's truck and finally the Cat pulled my truck to high ground. It was the one that was the most difficult to get out.
Woah!!!!! Any of those pics would have been a perfect entry!

Yes GB, I collect chains like some people collect trinkets. I think I have over 100' maybe over 150 feet. This is pretty much virgin ground. Very few vehicles and no livestock.
I had one 3/8" chain that was so long and heavy I couldn't drag it without a vehicle. Lot's of wire rope and clamps.
Gave all that kind of thing away before I left E. Texas.

I would have posted a picture if I could have found it. It's been a long time ago.

A friend and I walked into the house one day, through the carport, the mud room, and then the kitchen to find a motorcycle laying in the dining room. Little brother drove it through the sliding glass door. There was shattered glass everywhere, along with blood and gasoline.
