    I happened upon this on youtube and thot it was pretty cool. I've been stuck in the sand, mud, and snow and had a miserable time getting out. Usually somebody has to come along and pull me out with their vehicle. But this could make getting unstuck by yourself possible. I would probably use a chain instead of a rope, tho.

    We always called it a "hillbilly come-a-long". Who would have thunk it had a real name.:4:
