Other cars broke down too.
Well that sure ruined the fishing trip !
I'm sure the rear was free of dirt once it was back together...
That's a major roadside repair! Now what? Surely they don't have the spare parts with them for that kind of repair. Looks like they are in for a long walk.
No rush. Looks to be a dead end road and they could walk from there.

Just adjusting the gear backlash a bit, don't ya know.........

They can't be too far from civilization. All they have to do is follow the fence. I'm sure it will lead to somebody, sooner or later. BUT, they're in trouble if that's just a switchback in the road.

They are installing a lower gear set so they can make it up that hill.
I was with a small group that replaced a broken axle in the middle of the road. Had a handful of cars come by during the whole ordeal. One lady in her eighties drove by and made the comment "I bet you boys broke an axle". How she knew I'll never know. Worst part of the whole ordeal is we ran out of beer about half way through the job!!! Oh and this wasn't a story from long ago, it was 2011.
you cant do anything about a broken axle but running out of beer means you are not prepared.
Jeff, did you send that old lady to town to get more beer?
back in my day EMF meant ever morning fix it.
