Week-End At Allegany!

On our first night at Allegany, hubby decided he wanted to get the truck closer to the fire pit so we didn't have to unload all the wood that we brought with us.

Not such a good idea........

The wheels are spinning, but he isn't going anywhere. He was backing up just fine, but he hit a muddy spot and started sliding down the hill sideways.

Yep, it sure was sinking. He worked on trying to get it out for a few hours with no luck. We drove to the lake to call my brother to bring a chain and a jack with him when he came out on Saturday.

It isn't looking good. Behind the truck is a 20+ foot drop off and on the side of him is another drop. The drivers side door won't open because it is against a stump.

Notice Hubby in the truck trying to drive it out after they jacked it up and put wood under it.

After sliding a little further down the hill, they hooked a chain to the back end and pulled it back up towards the cabin. Then they hooked the chain up to the front.

Don't hit the propane tanks PLEASE!!!!

Keep driving!

Yes! Two days later he is OUT!

"Uncle Chris you sure did make a mess" and "you were really noisy" is all that Jerzie kept saying to him.
