Wheeling in the backyard
Amazing story:

Go to concrete recycling center and purchase 2800lbs of "3/4 minus" (3/4 and smaller crushed concrete and brick plus dirt and dust)

Load said purchase into back of D110 pickup....notice that I am now inches from rubbing on the rear wheel wells.

Drive home at 10 mph

Pick a spot to put said dirt on the farthest and highest corner of my property..where the shed will go. (dirt for shed base)

Get stuck in mud due to crazy weather in densely wooded backyard .

Slide sideways down hill due to no front traction and lift front right wheel 2 in off ground.

Crap pants.

Get fiancées' (sp?) 91 Landcruiser and drive past my stuck truck on the hill.

Use tow strap to mangle Rovers front stock bumper and pull it out of teetering hell.

Still cant make it to designated spot and get stuck between 2 trees.

Dent FL fender on Rover and RL fender on Landcrusier.

Give up and shovel out dirt.

Drive down in reverse

Go buy pizza/beer and try to find a place to rent a tracked bobcat.

I have a buddy with a body shop in Nanuet if you need....... he is dirt cheap and good....
