Lesson Learned

We had a bit of a hitch in our travels last week as we learned Stanley has his limits. We found our selves on a beach for the first time this trip and were struck by how many cars and trucks were just driving up and down the beach. So we thought “Hey, we should take Stanley for a beach cruise”. The bad news is he weighs about 10 times most trucks and we picked the loosest sand to enter the beach on.

After some weak attempts at rescuing it ourselves we had to call a tow truck. It just so happened that the tow truck driver video tapes all his tows and posts them on YouTube.

About an hour after we got stuck we were back on the road. Lesson learned.
