I got off the phone with Steve. They are in the Macks Fish Camp area off 27. From what Steve said they are about a mile out from where the air boat ramp is.
Keven, ( with his buggy ) Steve and another person with them, all 3 are stuck.

Tommy for thanks for picking up the stuck wheelers. I spoke with Milan and Steve tonight. The jeeps shoud be recoverable by day light. From what I hear, the buggy is another 1/2 mile in. I left a message & text with Jack for a number to someone at Home Grown. Depending on how badly stuck Kevin is it might require thier help.

Thanks Tom , Dave and Bill! I hope Kevin can get us out. I'm heading out there early as well. Still to be on the safe side if anyone else can get out there with a buggy or a Big (Red) Jeep, LOL I'd appreciate it, Any big jeep, or jeeps, are more than appreciated!

It was a nasty schog through the mud but Dennis, myself and as storms closed in Ricardo from Rocco 4x4 were able to recover the two Jeeps. Lumber brought in the morning was run out the last 1/2 mile via ATV to Kevin who was able to get the buggy back.

Right now would be a good time to cover some sound but often overlooked practices in wheeling.

- Wheel in a group of vehicles. Wheeling alone comes with huge and easily avoidable risks.
- Think twice before wheeling in a crappy place on the same weekend as an event that takes most of the big rigs out of the area.
- When responding to an emergency recovery, consider your capabilities and those of the other drivers in your team. If you are not certain that you can accomplish the recovery, reconsider your participation very carefully. Failure here just adds more standed vehicles in need of recovery.
- When someone has taken the time to come out and rescue you, risking their rigs, please understand this is not Burger King, so don't demand to have it your way. Make your point and express your concerns from the value point common to all wheelers and just prepare to work with your rescuers.
- Ground management is critical. If you pass other stranded wheelers NOT in your group on your way in, leave them there. Often they'll just wheel more and tear up your route back if rescued. Leave recued vehicles in your group on safe ground and move them as little as possible. They got stuck coming out in the first place. Moving them a bunch more will just result in them getting stuck again and tearing up the extraction area or return path.
- Once everyone is clear and safely out, leave the area. Go home. As one person said, "you might have cheated death, don't tempt it again".


I want to thank Dennis and Ricardo for coming down to work with grueling recovery. It pretty much killed the whole Sunday. I want to thank Tommy for picking up Kevin, Milan and Steve last night at the levee so they where safe from the storm that rolled in.

Lastly I just want to say I'm very thankful that everyone got out in one peice. Have fun but be safe out there.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Bill, Dennis and Riccardo for all their help today.
Sorry for contributing to ruining your day and getting frustrated at all the stucks and time it took to travel just a few miles in all that mud.
Also I have a black D-Ring that belongs to some one, Mine are not that nicely painted.
I also have a pair of Glasses that someone left in my RV.
PM me if you are missing your stuff.

Over 90% of the frustration is just the physical work and the resistiveness of nature (hot sun, mud and water in our cloths, shoes - etc). I know your heart and soul were in the right place going out to recover Kevin and I also know it's almost impossible to do nothing when a friend is stuck and really needs the help.

It's real easy for any of us to get in over our heads. God knows, we almost did that today and I'm just glad everyone got out safe. I want to make sure everyone was aware and is thinking when they go offroad.

Steve, thanks for pulling me though some of the nastiest mud and saw grass I've ever seen in years. I don't think I would of made it home tonight without you.

oh ya - I left my glasses in you RV.

i would also like to thank bill steve and dennis for coming out to help today... it was the toughest offroading i have encountered in all my years.... i truly appreciate everything that was done and what we tried to do... eventually the buggy got out with some highlift jacks and a heck of alot of jacking and wood.... i rode down to macks fish camp to see marhall and keith after everyone had left. marshall was out there on his airboat where we got stuck and saw where my buggy was stuck at.... he got his huge wheel buggy with 72" tires stuck 4 days ago and it was there for 3 days.... we all got extremlly lucky today... THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

Yes, thanks to all that helped.. No street registered Jeep belongs out there. Ever. Period.

And as tough as that was we got EXTREMELY lucky that the weather that was lumbering all around us didn't come in on us or we would likely still be out there.

I have to say I was impressed with that XJ, and thanks to himn for helping put my serpentine belt back on 4 different times.


Again, my rig is just not made for that stuff and I am grateful we all got out.

Thanks to Ric who stopped working on his shop expansion to come help.. I hope everyone returns the gesture and comes to his grand opening od the showroom at ROCO4x4 on 8/27.

I'm up for hanging out at Ric's on the 27th. It's a lot less work than digging jeeps out. BTW - I found your folding shovel. I can drop it off at your work. Thanks for all the help and sorry for taking up your Sunday but had you not made it, two jeeps (or more) might still be out there tonight.

Again, huge thanks.

I'm not sure if I had damage--I have a loud banging noice when driving in 4 low and when parking my trailer at home it kept popping out 4 low. Could be all that damn sawgrass wrapped around the driveshaft and axles--It's going to take a week to get it all out.
All in all some of the best were out there helping to retrieve the three of us.
Thanks Again!

this just proves to me yet again ... the everglades can and will swallow your vehicle and leave you stranded or worse "our case" walking the the swamps at 11pm at night to try to get to safety....just when i think ive got that place beat.. it bites me in the a###-------btw... that is a totally different kind of mud out there it is a mixture between rich holylands/everglades mud, big cypress marl and needle grass..you can run on top of that needle grass all day long but as soon as you spin and break through thats it .. your prob stuck.....we were running in airboat trails that noone has been able to run a buggy or jeep through in years... not since 2007 i believe.
