Anyone in the area of Page, AZ this weekend?
I’m quite stuck on the Smokey Mt. road about 12 miles outside of Big Water, UT. The roads are drying but I got really stuck last night trying to avoid a wash.
Called a few towing companies and they don’t want anything to do with Smokey Mt. road.

Obviously I recommend only someone with a 4x4


I’ll update the thread as needed

Ouch! That sucks! I know how bad things can get out there. Where exactly are you? Got coordinates? Pictures of the carnage? Glad you have cell service.

I would like to thank Dave & Henry, my guardian angels! Not 15 minutes after I made the post they came rolling by & pulled me out!

What a challenging situation, there was no way I could have dug myself out solo.

Time for a shower!

Glad you got out! You should be thrilled the tow companies didn't come out. You would have been out a chunk of change. You'll be washing that slop out from nooks and crannies under your car for months!

I heard it's $600-$1000 to get towed in those areas....

Glad you found someone to help out.

I spent 6 hours trying to dig out of a sand pit one time (mostly b/c I felt stupid for getting stuck and didn't want to ask for help), even tried to jack up the wheels and pack the divets with rocks. Now I carry a shovel and sand ladders just in case. :]
