Unread postAuthor: super spuder » Sat May 12, 2007 8:01 pm

i did not mean to get it stuck, it was actually dry on top. that is before my front wheel disappeared, pleas feel free to share your pics of when you got stuck in some mud or snow with your truck or dirt bike or what ever. Or just comment on these ones.

i dont have any pictures, mainly because i didnt exactly have time to run and get a camera.

anyway, i was flying my rc airplane that just happens to have a 5 foot wings span and the power had been cut out. there was a crosswind that was maybe 3 or 4 MPH, which was more than enough to push the plane over into the ditch just as i was about to land. the ditch was about feet deep and was flowing at about 4 to 6 mph, so i really had to run for it. when i caught up to it i had to jump in after in. i got it back.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

oh, that reminds me of this
that is the guy known as "dippydodo" on this site, and "mudman" on spudshot. yeah, he's my next door neighbor, and now he has a 2000 Yamaha blaster, 200 cc 2-stroke. we will get some pics next time he muds. or I mud.

well, kinda. I've got other stories, but I'll tell them later.
dirt bikes + trails + mud, sand, dirt, grass, etc = fun.

My friend and I went mudding at an old construction site.I brought my go-ped(all 25cc.) and he brought his quad.He ran through a big ditch and sunk the quad in mud down to the handle bars.I ran in and picked it up enough for the air intake to not suck mud and we paddled the thing out of chest high mud.We got it home just as the engine died.His dad was POed to say the least.

Hi, you and I have had similar experiecs. My dad and I were flying an RC plane when it got out of range. It was a very simple one and kept going. When it finally landed it was in the middle of a frozen lake. We gave up trying to get it after a few hours. We went to the store and got supplies like rope, etc. and had decided to come back the next morning. When we did i brought an RC hovercraft I had as well. Anyways we got the thing back and we able to fly it again, with out any damage.
