This is not wilderness survival specifically, but we all use vehicles to get into wilderness and sometimes things go wrong, and then it could turn into wilderness survival. Here's my vehicle recovery story from this morning. A neighbor's cattle (a weaner or a steer) somehow got through the fence and into another property, and promptly ran off into the thick forest. I said I'd drive around and open some gates to see if it would walk back to where it was supposed to be on it's own. I was driving along some small tracks and felt the ground collapse beneath me and the ute sank down to the axle. I'd found a wombat hole. Above pic is the hole that collapsed - I fell into the other end of it. Below is where I was stuck. The wheel isn't sitting on dirt, it's hanging in the air about a metre above the ground. I'd started shoveling dirt into the hole to fill it in. Here's where I was hung up - the front end of the ute was sitting on the dirt. That's the only reason I hadn't sunk any further. I filled in the wombat burrow and started packing dirt in, using the shovel and large sticks to pound it in and compact it. It took about an hour. Then I dug out the ground under the front end, and gradually the ute sunk downwards until the front wheels were sitting on the ground. I carry a Busse Basic Bolo 13 in the cabin. I used it to chop up some sticks. Hammering them under the tire for grip... After two hours work I was out !! You guys got any vehicle recovery stories?
