The big ol' front bumper plowed into the road base and brought the rig to a sudden stop. In deference to his better half, he stopped there and asked a neighbor to pull him out.
The neighbor came down in his Dodge 4x4 and kindly pulled him out. Now the Bobber is over 10, 000 pounds, the Dodge, I don't know, 4,000 or so. He didn't even slip a tire pulling the Bigun out. No harm was done and the neighbors had a good time to boot. Son weathered the expected jibbing well. He has crossed the ditch before but from the road to the yard not the yard to the road. I may be going back to attend a military vehicle off road adventure in North Carolina with him.
