        You would think that after the second truck got stuck the yellow one would not have tried it.

                I won't even begin to bother posting what I'm actually thinking about the lack of intelligence of these people.

                Quick story:

                When my son was a teenager, his second little car was a super clean Subaru hatch back.

                We all went to the coast, and he and his buddies drove down in his Subaru.

                That evening, they decided to take a beach cruise.

                We stayed in, or went to dinner, I don't recall.

                All was going well on the beach, until they hit a portion of the beach where a small creek ran into the ocean.

                I guess that the car dropped into a hole, from what he later told me.

                Of course this was fully laden with salt water.

                After the frame, engine, transmission, both axles, and you name it were wet with salt water, they finally got the car un-stuck, and drove back into town.

                I didn't learn of this until the next day.

                That's when I suggested that he hire a tow truck to dunk the car in the river at the river boat launch, and to do it several times.

                Well, he didn't do it.

                Three/four weeks later, every electrical item, every brake component, the clutch cable, the steering components.... you name it.... started failing.

                Once that stuff starts.... you can't stop it!

                  OMG! That was a complete stupidity vortex - some sort of force field drew all those low IQ's together in one place at one time. I think Neptune did it as a joke. 'He boys! Over here! And bring some machinery!'

                    The drive from my home in Paradise. Mich to Sault Ste Marie is along Whitefish Bay, part of Lake Superior.

                    One day I came upon a guy much like the first guy here. The launch area is used quite a bit and it looks just like this one.

                    A guy in a 4x4 Ford was in the water and stuck. Not as bad as this one but pretty close.

                    I pulled up with my 4x4 Dodge. I had a tow rope and so did he so I hooked up to try to pull him out.

                    He made a remark about how he would be ashamed to be pulled by a Dodge. I said the hell you will. You will just be glad to get out. All in fun.

                    But I couldn't get enough traction in the sand to pull him. Got enough tow line for me to reach the pavement but all I could do was spin.

                    Had to leave him for the big boys.

                    I think there was a bit of my truck will pull more than yours involved with this one.

                    Maybe looking through the bottom of a brown bottle also.

                      BWAAAHAHAHAHA! I guess I shouldn't laugh, I know from experience that a 4x4 has no traction in wet sand lol!

                        Yeah, traction is everything... usually doesn't matter how big and powerful your vehicle is, and often times the higher torque hurts you.

                        Just about everyone with a truck grossly overestimates what it's capable of in sand/mud/etc.

                              That is Wasaga Beach on Lake Huron and they are all French Canadian's on vacation with the trucks and locals with the tractors.
