When you get stuck in quicksand you are supposed to swim out of it!

Any tips on how to teach a truck to swim? :lol: :lol:

In my limited experience with quicksand:
Humans: make you foot as big as you can. :)
Vehicles: Start shoveling and attach winch cable if available. I also like to kick up the RPMs and try and keep the engine running.
