I managed to bury my ATV up to the belly pan while working today and had to walk out. It was 4.7 miles back to my truck in 95 degree heat. Not wanting to carry my water bottle since it did not have a way to hook it to my belt, I drank about a half liter of water and walked out. This was a mistake because it was too hot to walk that far in the heat without water. Luckily I had a liter of warm water back at the truck and it sure tasted good. I was able to get within a mile of the ATV pulling my trailer, but had to unhook so I could drive down a rough, narrow levee to reach the wheeler. I used the winch on my truck to pull out the ATV then drove back and hooked up to the trailer. Then I walked the mile back to the wheeler and drove it back and loaded up. The thermometer showed 99 degrees when I got back in the truck. I think I will start carrying a few nylon quick ties in the bag with my water bottle so I can hook it to my belt if needed. Other than getting a little to hot walking out the only real damage was a blister on my left big toe. So live and learn.
