a friend of mine contacted me on FB today, here's what he said:

my friends have three trucks stuck down by the Tanana levees behind the airport. Spent 8 hours last night trying to get them out. They're at least 300 ft from any spot a wrecker can get to, and digging out doesn't seem like its gonna work. If you got any advice send me a message. I'm gonna go down there and see if I can help out in an hour or so. It's a pretty funny sight to see.

I'm about to head out and see if I can help out, but if it's like the flats usually are, I'll be risking getting stuck myself if I'm not careful.

One vehicle recovered by badger towing, One by TjVigilante and two by the mad waggy. One dodge on 37's pro comps no lockers buried to frame, and one nissan xterra on stock highway tires, not stuck bad but it was gooey and helpless. My winch did so much pulling it decided to take up smoking. I hope it doesn't get cancer. We are all out and back to our respective duties. Good couple of hours for me, And Joey running cable.

Hooray, I can see my thread again! ;)

And Badger technically got one and a half out...me and half of the 3/4 ton dodge (with my winch as help). It was fun and embarrassing at the same time....though I DID go in at the worse of two entries and had no way of getting momentum through the sticky stuff. Good times by all, met some new people, met some old friends again, and got back out onto the trails if only for a little bit.

Definitely re-affirms why I stay away from that area now.
