I voted for 10 to 15 min but when you think about it. When you give it throttle and the track is spinning and it doesnt move. You think to yourself. Damm im stuck.
Looking back, Only to see the sound barrier.

for me, there is 2 kinds of stuck. There's stuck and stuck
usualy when i'm stuck I can pull the sled out in about 5 to 10 min, but when I'm stuck , we are 2 and more with shovels.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

"Stuck" is why I carry a handheld VHF radio and snowshoes. You don&#39;t need them until you are. Stuck is equivalent to "blown engine, etc." Three single pulleys and a length of rope are what I carry so I don&#39;t get stuck.
