The first Hunt Club workday of 2008 one of the other members borrowed a backhoe from his work. He trusted too much in the
four-wheel drive feature and wound up digging a hole with the backhoe in it. The next Saturday he borrowed a bullldozer to pull
it out and a few of us went along to help. And take pictures.

got it pulled.
