Raccoon Hunting.

So, thursday night some friends and I decided to do some raccoon hunting. We went up to Heber City, UT where my buddy had done a little scouting and saw a few coons for us to shoot. We headed up there at about 8 p.m. or so just before dark. We got to where we wanted and decided to head down this dirt road to get away from the street. We got to the top of this hill and it was all snow down the backside of it so one of my buddies got out to see if we could make it. I'll have it be known that i clearly stated that it wasn't a good idea to go down it; but what do i know I'm a retard. Anyways, no one listened to me so we headed down it and got stuck in two feet of snow an hour drive from Provo. (bad news bears, i know.) My buddy Tuck called a kid in Heber that he knows well and asked him if he could come pull us out. About an hour later he rolls up in a Toyota Tacoma, and immediately knew he couldn't pull us out. The road we were on looped around so he decided to go around and try anyways. Just as we suspected it wasn't happening that tacoma wasn't even budging us at all. Tuck's friend decided he was going to go get his step dads big diesel. So, he had a friend come pick him up because at this point its like 2 a.m. and there are two trucks stuck. At about 3 a.m. they get back with the diesel and pull down to where he thinks he can get a good pull on our truck to get us out. Needless to say he pulled down the hill too far and got stuck. At this point I was exhausted, one of my new years resolutions was to stop swearing and having three trucks stuck at 3:30 in the morning wasn't helping that out at all; but somehow four of us pushed a Ford F-350 Turbo Diesel up this hill. We then hooked our truck up to it and started to pull it out. Everything was going great until the tow strap snapped like a twig. We tied it back together and it just kept snapping right where we tied it. Once again, new years resolution not going so well. We decided to drive into Heber to see if Smith's had anything, no luck. We found a chain at a construction site and proceeded to "borrow" it. By the time we got back to where the trucks were it was starting to get light, somewhere around 5 a.m. We hooked up our chain and got our truck out. We were ecstatic, yelling and screaming, for joy obviously. Two down one to go! The other truck was no big deal to pull out but by the time we pulled it out and got back into Provo it was 7:30 a.m. I had to go take a drug test for work, so i went and did that and went back to my apartment to go to sleep and when i got there found out my stupid electronic key didn't work. I was so tired i was about to sleep on the patio, but luckily my Mom lives less than a mile from me so i went there and slept in her bed.
Total Time Spent Stuck
9 hours!!!!!
