Where I grew up we were literally the last house on the road. Dad had NOTHING good to say about 4x4's vehicles and quads. Every hunting season it was the same - every other day some dog tired hunter would come wandering into the yard - they were stuck up north on a logging road, could we please come pull them out with the tractor. One guy, not a problem...a dozen guys (on average) over a hunting season became a huge pain in the butt.
Dad hated 4x4's utterly refused to get one...."you just get stuck farther from the road" he'd say.
The most annoying ones were the ones we'd pull out and then they'd keep heading farther up the road ,) ,)

If i go back into an area that is real bad,,,i will get out of the truck and take a reall good look at everything around befor i even atempt to enter the bad hole,,i will make sure i have a good solid tree to grab ahold of to pull me out if i do get stuck. I have always been in bad off road areas,,but have never had to get help ever after hunting for 46 years with my 4x4,,,you have to no what you are doing befor you go into these areas,,wayne.
