I did a bad thing…

Day 2 of brush hogging the orchard. Things were going swimmingly. Until I got too close to a tree covered in grapevines. Got tangled. It was horrible. I tried to back out but couldn’t. Wheels were spinning. Tried to rock, forward and backward. The more I tried to get out the more I got pulled in. Apparently a thick grapevine got wrapped around the front axle and the more I tried to escape the tighter it got tangled. Had to call my uncle to come pull me out with his tractor. Broken tie rod and bent smokestack. I thought I was doing so well with the solo tractor driving. Was really feeling confident, you know? Not so much now.
