Well one day I was following my friend home from work and there is this nice 90 degree gravel corner that we rally all the time. Well today he went a little to fast. He had a perfect slide going but just to fast. So he slid a 180 in mid air into the ditch. Well a lady that was coming down the road saw it and called the police. So the police came and my friend got a careless driving ticket, and the officer called AAA towing which costed my friend 120 bucks.:banghead: Anyway he was REALLY stuck.

Amazingly enough there was almost no body damage. I know if it was anything besides a subaru there would be a lot of body damage.

I don't think I've ever been stuck, in my subarus. (knock on wood) But, just this morning on my way to work I came upon one of my neighbors. His Outback was in the ditch, so I turned around to see I could help. Turns out that he saw some deer crossing ahead of him and was slowing down to give them time to cross. When he touched the brake pedal he heard a loud POP, the car began to shudder and he lost all braking. Well, he missed the deer and ended up in the ditch. Didn't look like he had any body damage, but apparently the left front brake caliper attach points failed. The caliper came loose and rattled around inside that nice alloy wheel, breaking large chunks of the wheel off in the process. OUCH!!

I towed him out of the ditch with my '92 Loyale, parked his car in a nearby driveway and gave him a lift home.

not really stuck... but embarrassing all the same...

going over the backside of Mt. Hood last winter in some 33 degree packed snow (slippery @#$%). Decided to do a 'Brake test'. well, ended up perpindicular to the road with the tail in the ditch, nose pretty high.

Put it 4-Lo, pulled out, and kept on going :banana:

I backed my loyale off an embankment at my garadge. It was a steep slope, so the floorpans hit the brink of it as the back wheels went down with me standing on the brakes. I just went too far back and the dropoff was closer than I thought. I tried driving out, but the back wheels were hanging and too much of the weight was behind the point if was bottomed, so the front wheels just spun. I had to get my dad to pull with his tractor while I ran the car to get it out.
Even more embarrasing: I went off the same slope the same way, but hit the brakes sooner the next week! Same deal with the floorpans stopping the car from going down. I couldn't bring myself to get the tractor again, so I used the jack and the spare tire to get traction on one of the back wheels and got out. I never park over there anymore, it's just too risky.
