    OK, here's the footage from Just Jeff's demonstration on how not to park your Jeep.
    This has not been edited much at all save adding a screen at the beginning and the end and deleting a little potty mouth at the very beginning. It was shot with a Flip camera so it's a bit jumpy as I attempt to walk through the snow.

    Trust nobody!

    That amsteel must be preserved in the "Hammock Museum". That's a great testimonial of the strength of the product. Shoot a link over to Amsteel, see what they think?

    On another note...whats it weigh in grams and ounces?

    Based on this, I think they already know.
    I kind of wish we would have tried it with just a single strand just to see what would happen. But, it was still fun and my supply of Amsteel is still in one piece!

    Haha - the snow was flat and looked solid...there was a tire track just beside where I went off. I was pulling over to wait for everyone, then...slip...slip...and it was too late! I was in. Those are 33" tires and the front one was completely covered. At least I could still open my door!

    And I was laughing with the guys that I've been meaning to get a tow strap. I've actually been in the Walmart checkout line saying to myself, "Jeff, you forgot the tow strap again. Whatever...get it next time." Looks like I shouldn't have waited! But Cannibal came to the rescue with a zillion extra feet of Amsteel he had squirreled away.

    My gas tank is on the driver side, and it was showing WAY low when it was tilted like that. I'd barely touch the gas and it would stall!

    Glad Dana had the Titan there! And glad I could provide some entertainment for y'all...

    If ya ain't been stuck, ya ain't tryin' hard enough. (Or, like me, you just can't drive.)

    After watching that video, we don't feel so bad for getting slightly stuck on our way out Saturday night Thanks for posting it, Cannibal.

    Haha - yeah, I was in there pretty good. I'm just glad so many helpful people had their cameras available to get me out...
