I only had one, and it was a classic unprepared story. I took the 76 Scout 2 out for a hike west of Nederland my 2nd year in college. I'd been wheeling for 3 years in my yota, but my folks needed the truck for a year, and gave me the Scout, which was my car in high school.

Anyway, I thought I was pretty savvy, and good. Had a high-lift, shovel, and tow strap, but was out on my own. Got up the road, hiked, it rained, and on the way back, part of the road turned into a bog. Being confident, I roared into the bog section pedal down....

And ended up buried to the frame in muck.

6 hours of digging, highlifting off of the spare tire, and stacking logs, rocks, and dirt under the wheels, I made it the 15 feet I needed to get out, and got back on the road.

Last time I'll go through a mud hole if its possible to avoid, or without another vehicle.
