The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the two pickup trucks stuck off the Dalton Highway are still there after a failed attempt to jack them up out of the wet tundra:
"The hunters who drove a pair of pickup trucks off the Dalton Highway in early September to retrieve three caribou they shot only to get the trucks stuck up to their axles in the tundra are still trying to figure out a way to free the trucks from the muck before freezeup.
Officials with the Bureau of Land Management said the hunters were unsuccessful in their first attempt to jack up the vehicles. This week, the hunters were planning to make a second try at lifting the trucks out of the mud. They hope to drive the trucks out after the ground freezes to prevent further damage to the tundra."
