    Stuck Bronco in Washoe Valley

    Stuck about a mile from Reno side of Eastlake BLVD. Ground is very soft, big tires and lockers required. I have winch but if recover rig had a winch that would be better. Already spent 4 hours digging and trying to scoot over with high lift with little success. Bronco is on 37s locked front and rear. Drove to where its at in 2wd, but just attempted to reach with a stock 4x4 cummins, way to heavy couldn't get to it.

    Spot is actually just off of Ophir Rd, Washoe Valley, 89704.

    Ground is freezing now, so if gotten to early in the AM may be able to get it out much easier. We are going to head back out at 6AM

    Negative, not out. We got one rig unstuck for about 4 feet, but we are not making much progress. Back at home now until we get some extra help. A good rig with winch would be a massive help.

    Are you up the first road, closest to the cattle guard on eastlake, or did you go up from the dirt parking lot? How far back did you get? Post up or PM when you decide to head back out. I'll try to keep an eye on the thread or my inbox.

    Awesome! Can you meet at my house off Pershing? Message me and I can send address. We are working out a plan to get the rigs out.

    We've had better luck from the dirt parking lot, although with a good rig the one closer to the cattle guard might be easier. We've so far only had stock heavy trucks with pizza cutters. We are about 1/4 mile down the path to the right once you get to the fork after going over the hill. We are going to try to gather some rigs at my house off Pershing LN and figure a plan before we head back out. We have an idea to keep any more rigs from sinking.

    They are all out. Also helped out a full size Ford F250 on the way out. The trails above Washoe Valley are washed out and the ground is saturated. It is like soup in places.
