I know this doesn't look so deep but the bike was absolutely trapped. I was on my own and just couldn't free it. Called in a mate and we tried to tow it but didn't shift an inch. Took almost an hour to dig it out. The mud was also full of cow **** to add to the horror. I could've just rode around it.......:color:

Hi.

Nice one, been there and done that,

Me and a mate rode up a valley loking for a route, we really should of turned round and gone back, but you know what it's like it will get better soon;) well it didn't, 6 hours of hell, moving around 5-10 yards and stuck again:( I usually look back the day after and think that was hard but good fun, well it was hard but it wasn't fun at all, not going there again:rolleyes:

Nice. It's like you say - you rev the nuts off it as you feel it bogging down and then just make it worse. There's a bit of you that knows that but can't accept that it's time to get off and start digging!

lay it on its side and pull the bugger out:rolleyes:
Impossible when the mud is holding it upright and won't allow it to lean so that you can put it on it's side as it's so deep in the stuff

Where theres a will theres a way, but only in the ideal world. Dont envy anyone being that stuck, its bloody hard work getting them out I know.
