Net up to homochitto national forest yesterday with some friends, got the XJ stuck in some soft soil, rain wasn't helping. My boss came up last night and we tried to pull it out but were unsuccessful, his winch doesn't work! I am in the southern portion near gloster and Crosby, need some help getting her out! If anyone is in the area and willing to help please let me know. PM me or call Adam at bicycle world in new Orleans, number is 504-828-1862. thanks for any help!

Yeah, I'm still laughing myself! Figures it happens when you decide to turn around and get put of there! It's getting late today but I'm still trying to get out if anyone is willing. If I don't find anyone I am going up there again on Wednesday.

I'll have some for ya tomorrow! Heading up there with the boss after installing his new winch for him today. The only reason I was stuck was the rain, soft soil and street treads. After the sun drying things out today I feel like I may be able to drive right out, but we will have to wait and see.

Got her out today, 10 minutes after arriving I was free! Ground was a little moist and soft still but no problems getting out.

Where she sat:




The hole I was in, you can barely see the stump back there that was causing me all the issues:


Free! Ready for the climb out:
