I saw this story and thought it was worth sharing. This is the deepest snow recovery I've ever heard of.

Good lord I'm glad I got stuck where I got stuck in January... My car woulda been toast out there... Not that I think it's even set up to make it that far.

That's so deep it's almost comical.

That is freakin' wild!!! I didn't see any signs of them, I went in on from the East side and I didn't really notice anything except atv/utv tracks going through the drifts. I wonder if they came in from the West side? The story doesn't say specifically. It would have been funny if I made it all the way to the hole! I probably would have got there and been like, "WTF??? Did a bomb go off here? Are there landmines??? How am I going to drive out safely??? I'm freakin' out!!!"

Thanks for sharing that Lump, pretty crazy!

That's brings up a good point. Did they fill the hole back in? Maybe if you went back now you'd find three rigs in there.
