Went wheeling with some buddies on FR 393 on Sunday. Had a minor mishap. About 10 miles in we have a truck stranded, hanging off the side of a trail. I was wondering if anyone could help help us out. We have a tow company who assures us that they can get back there. I am sure they can't...Tuesday we will find out. If not, is there anyone who would be willing to help out? We need at least 1 winch and another truck. If you can help, please call me on Tuesday at 480-216-6101 or e-mail [email protected] Thanks in advance.

Tufftoy is right. It's past the Sunflower Mine turn-off. The tow company declined...think they did some research and realized they don't have anything to get back there. The owner of the stuck truck is trying to get in contact with the forest service to see if they can help. Just to clarify...no one is out there, just a truck. Toyboxauto...thanks for calling. I'll let you know if the forest service turns us down. With all the rain, I don't think we'll be able to get back there til the weekend. The mud back there is slick as snot. Thanks again, Steve.

Oh boy, that could be an expensive call. Good luck getting it out.

Thanks for the offers guys, but we got it out. We got another tow company to come out and get it. The driver said it was the worst recovery he's ever done...$650 later. The insurance company was cool about it and covered 3/4 of the bill. Thanks again for all the offers.
