I was on on 4th of July road up by Eldora today and came across tow very stuck vehicles. I was able to winch out the first vehicle and get it back to an area where they were able to drive home. However the other vehicle driven by 2 young ladies was stuck further down the road in a more precarious spot and we were not able to get them out. It was decided that we could probably get the vehicle out however it would require more equipment/vehicles than we had.
I let them know I would post on our club forum asking if anyone was willing to help get them out. The vehicle is a red Isuzu Rodeo with factory tow points on it(not to mention bald tires). 2 in the front and one in the back. The exact location is
N 39 56'59.8" W 105 35'28.2.
If you are interested in getting a few rigs together and go help PM/call me and I will give you the vehicle owners cell phone number. :thumb:

I would gladly go but I too work Sundays. Take a pic or two so we can learn from the extraction techniques. It doesn't need to be said but be careful. It's all fun and games until someone gets a clevis in the teeth. :eek:

yes.

I was getting ready to install some rock sliders on my rig, and called Blackdiamond for a hand, when he mentioned this 'stuck' rig we were going to rescue.

after loading up a few straps, d-rings, snatch block and other junk i keep handy, we roll to 4th of july road.. only to find the trail completely blocked by a VERY stuck power stroke F250..

after about 20 minutes of repeatedly getting myself buried, i finally decide to resort to "redneck rescue".... i.e. "hang on, im gonna jerk ya".. 5-6 hard yanks popped the power stroke out of the hole and he was able to get out of the way.

after that, the Isuzu was anti-climatic. after an aborted attempt to pull it out in reverse, (bald tires don't steer well on ice... much less in reverse while being dragged) i hooked onto the front end, and simply slid it around 90 degrees on the ice, turned myself around, hooked on the right way and drove us both out.

on the way out, we ran across yet another 'stuck' 2wd ford ranger who managed to get himself sideways blocking the road, but all this one took was a quick pull to get him headed in the right direction, and a couple cute gals and myself sitting on the tailgate for enough weight to get him rolling again.

as is typical in Gilpin Co (yea, this was boulder... but still)... what should ahve been a 10 minute in-and-out rescue on what is normally a 2wd road became a Triple Play...

naturally :beer: and Pizza followed, so all was well.
