Our tractor was stuck AND would not start. Warming the oil pan with a BBQ grill got it started. No way to get equipment in to pull it out. If you try this yourself (even the manual suggests using "warming methods" if it is hard-starting and the weather is cold) you want very little heat. I was able to leave my hand between the grill and oil pan and was worried it wouldn't be warm enough. The oil pan felt WARM not hot to the touch and it worked great. We put tin-foil on the hydraulic lines just to make sure they didn't get melted, but frankly this was over-cautious. The tiny portable grill we got for this put off very little heat.
Once it started, we tried the "log chained to the tire" trick found here ( *******www.youtube****/watch?v=YnRRGW... ) but the JD 6300 was just too heavy even with a larger log. We ended up pulling out a couple feet at a time by chaining the wheel to a tree and using a come-along to tighten it up first.

Rob, Chris, and Mark moving the new Huey gunship up to the field. Too bad we didn't get video of us blocking an entire highway after the truck dropped it next to the road, forcing us to spin it 270 degrees in the middle of the road.
This is a day of playing speedball on our top field in Quincy Florda, near Tallahassee. As you can see it's a bit of a mix between woodsball and speedball, with plenty of bunkers and plenty of trees to provide shade (and get in the way at the most interesting times). www.BWRPaintball****
One of the more experienced players goes out into a 17 acre field and hides. Anyone he shoots joins his side. If the attackers shoot him after he's been "turned" he is out. The "Predator" has as much paint as he can carry. The attackers are only allowed the paint in their hoppers. Fun game!
Black Water RECON is located near Tallahassee Florida.
