I was bogged once hiking in the Sheeffry Woods in Western Ireland. Darnedest thing to be walking along and whooompf! Next thing you know you’re up to your knees. I had to sit down, pull my legs out of my wellies, and then work them out of the soft peat in which I had landed.

One might rather suspect this young driver knows the feeling. He was stuck over the weekend south of Mitchell Park’s dog run area.

The reader that called me with this news indicated the driver was a young man from Central. Several trucks were trying to get the SUV out, but none of them could figure out how to get the job done without going in themselves. It looks like they abandoned the effort.

Anyone else have details?


  1. Whatever says:

    Actually, heard it was a bunch of East kids. Girl let her boyfriend drive the car. Doubt the parents will let her see him again

  2. Anthony says:

    May I relate this to another incident that occurred a while ago?

  3. Well, I didn’t use the big lens, so we’ll just have to guess at that license plate.

    I am hearing “East” also. I’ll have to quiz the youngest.

    Anthony, funny and appropriate link! It wasn’t you, was it? 😉

  4. Anthony says:

    No, I don’t think I would be stupid enough to drive a news van onto a frozen lake.

    As an East student, I am not surprised that my fellow students would get themselves into this kind of trouble with their cars. For the most part, East students are pretty stupid drivers. One hit my Dad because she didn’t stop when she was pulling out of the Highlander. Her parking got suspended for 2 weeks.

    At the end of the day, Karen is supposed to come out and do traffic control, but she hasn’t been out lately.

  5. Hey! I saw Karen about 2pm this afternoon. She was in the north lot, though. The south lots are a zoo because of the construction.

  6. Anthony says:

    Then someone needs to get over to the South lot, because it’s hectic over there. I saw someone get rear-ended the other day. Plus, the parent line to get out never moves in the South lot because all of the students are rushing to get out.

  7. Is there a road there or was this joyriding gone a-muck?

  8. Kathryn says:

    Ha ha!

  9. Dan, no road. More than a little joy in the initial riding, I suspect.

  10. Perhaps he’s buddies with the guy who drove figure eights on Easts field
