Default First Time Really Stuck in Ohio

I decided to try a small creek crossing and it ended up being deeper than i thought. I ended up leaving my Jeep there overnight and the next day it took me alone 4 1/2 hours with a 2000 pound winch a shovel and a come along to get it out.

I went alone but I was within walking distance from my grandparents farm. I told my uncle and he said since i was the one that got stuck i had to learn how to get out. He could have easily gotten a tractor down to me but he refused.

that is a good uncle if you ask me. nothing worse than someone putting tons of money in there jeep and no learning the hard way how to properly wheel it. good for him and for you. ive spent the night before in my jeep was way too far from home to walk. that sucked but learnt a valuable lesson.

Funny story I did the same thing but two jeeps lol I got mine buried and my buddy decided to pull up behind me and pull me out he sunk to the axles and both jeeps stuck bumper to bumper!
It was about 3 in the morning when we decided to leave and come back in the morning (oh it was around 37 degrees) came back around 830am with another jeep and well Akron PD was there with the land owner lol.. Called local tow company to hook up winch and ****** block and pulled us out not a cheap day and no tickets but just glad that I didn't come back to two burned jeeps that's when I decided to buy a winch and never wheel places that were not designated off road places lol
