In the thick of the battle...
The summer adventure begins.... Yesterday I had my own solo escapade. I went off headed out in the middle of nowhere, and I really do mean that, no exaggeration there. I was looking for a location to film, for a commercial were shooting in a month. After driving out in the middle of nowhere, somewhere past Provo canyon. I veered off the road, and started to go off the path about a mile or two. Not the smartest thing, especially if you have seen my car and the weather conditions. Anyways, long story short, I thought I could get past this ditch area...... And I failed.. In fact I didn't even come close. And it was so muddy everywhere, I was all by myself, and my phone was about to die.... So... I kinda laughed to myself because all odds were against me... I spent 5 hours in the mud, hail, and lighting trying to get my car out of the mud. I tried everything... Halfway through,... I decided I would have to try another method... So I walked towards the river, by the river there was these old creepy abondoned houses that looked like something from a horror movie. I found a shed full of old rotten wood, and I grabbed a couple pieces to see if I could use them to move my car.. The whole time I was waiting for someone to pop out and kill me... Haha, and I'm partly being serious to.
Eventually I got the boards I found back to my car, and had to build a teeter totter to lift my front end of my car up. After a couple more hours I was eventually able to pull my car out. I was completely soaked, covered in mud, and freezing. But I cant remember the last time I have felt so relieved as I pulled out of the mud, I felt like busting out in my own musical! Life was wonderful.
This is where I was stuck, and the view from my window.
