My vehicle is stuck in wet sand

Saturday, March 30th, 2024, at 8:18 p.m. (CT), we received a request for help with an offroad recovery in Minnesota. The requester, Dominick Jerome Winge, submitted the following information: “1999 Honda Accord sedan, will require a tow rope and 4 wheel drive truck with good tires. My vehicle is in wet sand but not currently stuck in it and will need to be pulled up a somewhat wet sandy slope for about 15-20 feet. Overall, it’s not too difficult of a job with a long rope. I’m like a mile and a half away. I will take pictures later if need be. / I’m not with the vehicle.”

Our general administrator, David Mrak, organized the request and verified the contact information, location, and situation before sending the request to local volunteers within a 45-mile radius.

Of the group of contacted, within fifteen minutes, two marked themselves as engaging. Christopher Harten and Troy Schultz. By 8:50 p.m., Christopher updated us on our lobby; he made contact with the requester and planned to meet with him in 30 minutes.

At 9:43 p.m., Christopher closed the request; the vehicle was recovered.

We want to thank all the volunteers who responded, especially those who made the trip to help Dominick. Awesome job guys!
