ha!
we actually made it a bit further, following a guy in an F150.  He eventually gave up at the summit, we turned around as well, as the east side was shadier still, and it was getting late in the day,

4WD just helps you get stuck farther away from help!

Nope only around 15% of trucks on the road. That percentage is a guess but the overwhelming majority are 2wd

Yup. And they all have guns/gun racks.  ;D  AVGeek is SO right.  By the time a 4 x 4 gets stuck, it's not good.

it was 4wd..with basically bald, wide and crappy tires.  Good dude, but he just about drove it off the side of the road (both shoulders were super soft and wet)
