I know they have tow truck guys circulating around the campgrounds to help folks in need. Couple years ago a group from Canada got stuck in a mud pool, eventually they ran down the battery. I had a battery pack, so we jumped the car, but that sucker was stuck to bad no amount of pushing would help. Eventually a tow truck helped them out, although the tow truck came real close to getting stuck as well!
I assume the tow guy/gal could pull your car to a shop if needed. I would just look for those folks if you had a bigger problem than a dead battery or suck in the mud.

I locked my keys in my car parked at the gas station right across the St from the koa entrance, and called the town police. they were there in 10 mins And happily slim jimmed my door open in seconds. the cop told me if I called the staties, I'd be waiting for 3 hrs. if that ever happens, call Manchester police. of course only if you are not on bonnaroo grounds. obviously.
i got locked out at the winery leaving hahaha they came and opened the door for me. i left the door open to my car once and killed the battery...i carry jumpers so i was cool i think i fyou have trouble ask around you first.....then go to the pod second. they likely can help you
my friend had one of those scooter things. it had a flat and no one could help him. i thought that was terrible that the accessible people couldnt help him - you would think thats a common thing at roo but....he was screwed pretty bad on that one.

I'm a little terrified this year. I'm driving a honda civic that I bought off of this guy who tricked it out for street racing. Street racing aint my thing but the price was right for the car so...This thing is LOW[/i] to the ground, like 5 inches if that! While I have to admit I do think it's allot of fun that I can make 90 degree turns at 50mph, I'm dreading the farm a bit.
Thanks OP, I've already added that dude to my cell phone contacts!
its very true they may be there... do you guys want me to check around with some locals and find some good local auto folks. i can do that no problem. i live near there
money bunny....i have a painting in my office called monkey bunny...and ironically its a monkey and a bunny ...who da thought...my friend chris fabbri painted it for me
My screen name is one I choose for most of my online activities well over 10 tears ago. It comes from my atrocious spelling skillz and a song by the "pop & rock" band The Residents. The song originally appeared on a collaboration LP they made with another band from the U.K. called Renaldo and the Loaf. The song is titled "Monkey and Bunney, and it was deeply meaningful to me at the time, but now I don't seem to remember why. This is my favorite version of it -
And chris fabbri...what a weirdly familiar name. Huh. Mysterious. You're tripping me out!

My 240sx is lowered. It has made it through Roo quite well. Carry a pair of 2x6's with you just in case you get stuck, you can put them under your tires for better traction. Also, keep plenty of room between you and the car in front of you on the way in/out. You need to be able to watch the road for pot holes. I have a spare front bumper in my garage. You probably don't though and they are not cheap.

^^^Excellent suggestion on the 2x6, I'm adding that to my list stuff to remember for Roo. Regarding pot holes, man, I've become almost psychic at detecting those things! 1st lesson I learned about driving a lowered car (the hard way!)
